A rather odd northwest Iowa teenager recently took a cardboard cutout of Jets QB and former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow to the prom.
Yes, we’re not kidding.
“He was a cheap date, and he didn’t talk much,” Rachel Bird joked. “And when I asked him to stand in a corner, he did. I don’t think it even hurt his feelings.”
Bird says she sent Tebow a Twitter message, asking him to escort her to this past Saturday’s prom for Kingsley-Pierson High School. She says he’s attractive and she likes the Christian way he conducts his life.
When Tebow didn’t get back to her, she went to Plan B, which was to take a cutout of him to the dance.
Bird says that at the prom, girls wanted to dance with her quarter-inch-thick escort and the boys had their pictures taken with Rachel’s “date.”
