Hazing NFL rookies may just be as American as apple pie – or for all we know it may just involve a large quantity of pie filling. But Tim Tebow? That would never happen, would it?
The NFL hazing stories didn’t regularly hit the sports headlines until this season, specifically when Dallas Cowboys rookie WR Dez Bryant refused to carry Roy Williams’ pads a few weeks ago.
Now, rookies that are victims of hazing pop up regularly. As in, faster than Albert Haynesworth can complete his conditioning test. A lot faster, actually.
It’s gotten to the point that no one is safe from not just hazing, but also having his story find its way to the media – and into the news.
That includes “The Chosen One”, himself.
Yes, even Tim Tebow is a victim of hazing.
Let’s just say that the former Florida Gators star and first round draft pick by the Denver Broncos took his rookie hazing in stride… or so it appears.
Tebow’s teammate LenDale White broadcast the hazing incident to the world earlier today on Twitter, sending the following message and attaching a picture of the young QB’s new hairdo.

Let’s just say that the kids of the world won’t be rushing out to the local barber (or stylist) requesting “The Tebow”.
But enough of the chatter about it… just took a look for yourself – if you haven’t seen it already.
Come to think of it, Tebow looks somewhat like Joe Pesci’s character in Home Alone. A blowtorch to the head will do that to a hairline.
Actually, an even better flick comes to mind…

You serious, Clark?
Yes, we are.
That’s a good call, Marnie… I bet that’s what they were thinking when they gave him that haircut. I read somewhere else that someone was joking he looked like Friar Tuck, but your call is much more likely in my mind.
Yeah, he’ll be bald for a while… and there’s also a chance he starts the season carrying a clipboard, but don’t fret… he’ll have a hat on I’m sure.
I think they did it bc it looks like Jesus, with that beard and the crown of thorns. That’s what it makes me think of every time I see it. Too bad too bc he had good hair, now he’s going to have to go bald for awhile. :-(
