Hey Tebow, don’t mess with Hulkster

Tim Tebow

Growing up outside D.C., I was never a big Howard Stern fan. My parents subscribed to a newspaper, I thumbed through it before driving to school with friends. That all changed in 2000.

Living right outside New York City, I finally got into Stern. Any fan will tell you that they enjoy the cadre of adult film stars who make frequent appearances on the show and one of them — a 19-year-old who “acts” under the alias Bibi Jones — generated some buzz in the sports world this past weekend when she tweeted out two photos with a member of the New England Patriots.

Rob Gronkowski, a 6-foot-6 tight end, was shirtless while Jones was wearing his oversized NFL jersey. Gronkowski isn’t a star, but he’s a very nice player. Plus, the Patriots had a bye week and the Red Sox aren’t in the World Series, so this story generated major buzz in Boston.
Jones became a hot commodity in the talk-radio world, where she practically boasted about “hanging out” with various athletes, including an NHL player named Paul Bissonnette and Braves slugger Dan Uggla. Uggla is now separated from his wife, so there’s that.

Hulk Hogan not buying into Tebow Mania

I think we’ve got a first in this space: a mention of everyone’s favorite 1980s wrestler, Hulk Hogan.
(Every friend I had from about 1986-1990 was a huge Hogan fan. Some people like Macho Man Randy Savage, others like Koko B. Ware, some liked Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, but everyone loved the Hulkster.)

Hogan is out of the wrestling game these days. Naturally, he’s doing other things, like driving his fleet of cars up and down South Beach, being on a reality show, trying to keep his son out of jail and trying to keep clothes on his daughter.
Also, he ripped everyone’s favorite quarterback, Denver’s Tim Tebow.

The rant was nonsensical — then again, isn’t everything that comes out of his mouth? — and ended with, “What are you gonna do, Tim Tebow, when Hulkamania runs wild on you?” Which was Hogan’s signature call in the ’80s.

Tebow of course, won his first start in incredible fashion, rallying Denver from 15-0 in the fourth quarter to win. An hour later, CBS announcer Greg Gumbel was calling the Pittsburgh-Arizona game when, for absolutely no reason, he said, “I must have been out of the country when people cared what Hulk Hogan thought about anything other than play-acting in a fake sport.”
That’s what the kids these days call a sick burn.
