You’re a pretty big deal, Tim Tebow, but — just a question — what you gonna do when the 24-inch pythons run wild on you, brother?
Denver’s newly christened starting quarterback received sharply worded advice this week from one of America’s Q-rating gods, Hulk Hogan, on ESPN’s “SportsNation.”
Asked who the bigger motivator was between the two, Hogan — donning Tebow’s Broncos jersey — made it crystal clear: While Tebow might be a popular guy around town — good looks, charming personality — he’s got nothing on wrestling’s mega-icon.
“Well, you know, Tim Tebow looks like my shadow at high noon, brother!” Hogan exclaimed. “You know, at the end of the day, my arms are bigger than his legs!”
And, as Hogan proceeded to rip the Tebow jersey from his chest — whipping the studio audience into a frenzy — he went on:
“… So, at the end of the day, if you want to be the bigger motivator, you’ve gotta have millions and millions of Tebowmaniacs — which you don’t — on your side, and that’s why my millions and millions of Hulkamaniacs — when I start tearing this shirt off and ripping it apart — everybody wants to know, WHAT YOU GONNA DO, TIM TEBOW, WHEN HULKAMANIA RUNS WILD ON YOU!?”
Ah, the simple joys of a Hulk Hogan pep talk.
