Tim Tebow was in attendance at the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner held on May 3, and he became the subject of a joke when the host, Joel McHale, took a shot at him, Orlandosentinel.com reported. Well, Tebow wasn't really the only one "mocked" at the said dinner event.
"Richard Sherman has already had an impact on tonight's event," said McHale. "He's intercepted all there of Tim Tebow's attempts to pass the dinner rolls."
"Oh and Russell Wilson is also here from my Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks," McHale added. "Peyton Manning - he wanted to be here tonight, but he can only move four yards at a time."
Aside from Tebow, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, retired NBA player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Eric Johnson, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, Tony Romo, Adrien Peterson, Kirk Cousins, and JJ Watt were some of the sport personalities who graced the event. Orlando Sentinel has their pictures here.
Aside from keeping himself busy by attending gatherings and events, Tebow occasionally does some motivational speaking. According to Peoria Journal Star, Tebow "spoke about pride and humility to a group of Christian athletes and spectators" on May 5. He was a guest speaker at the Greater Peoria Area Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
"If you have a little courage, if you have a little faith, just try to do something different," said Tebow during the assembly. "When we take a step, God can make it a mile," he added.
Tebow currently works as an ESPN analyst. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Tebow has an "out-clause" in his contract with ESPN, which means that he can still pursue his career in the NFL in any case that a football team expresses its interest of signing him. Unfortunately, no teams have yet stated their intentions to sign the former quarterback.
