Tim Tebow and American hurdling star Lolo Jones share two things in common: They're saving their virginity until marriage and they get made fun of incessantly for that decision.
Jones, the 29-year-old world indoor champion and Olympic medal hopeful, recently told HBO's "Real Sports" that she was still a virgin. Once that interview aired, she drew immediate comparisons to America's most famous sexual holdout, Timothy Richard Tebow. That similarity wasn't lost on Tebow's New York Jets teammates.
According to Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News, Tebow was serenaded with chants of "Lolo! Lolo!" when he entered the locker room following Thursday's OTAs and it wasn't because he's good at hurdling and sort of looks like Rashida Jones.
Jones told Mary Carillo that keeping her virginity is harder than training for the Olympics. Sometimes, men will try to entice her into the bedroom by claiming sex makes you run faster. As I wrote on a Fourth-Place Medal post earlier this week, that'd certainly explain Cromartie's speediness.
