Keep your shirts on!

Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans have a good piece into today's NYTimes on the loss of privacy that the three top QBs, Tebow, Bradford, and McCoy, experience on a day to day basis. (And yes, you could say sites like this one contribute to it.) But if you've been here before, you know there are no queries after players' girlfriends, no party posts, etc. But moving on to our point...

We know Timmy T. is a handsome guy. If you don't have a man crush yourself, Tebow is practically everyman's nightmare if you are trying to compete for the attention of the ladies in the same town. But ladies, really, keep your clothes on in Radio Shack. And mom's you too! (And we told you fans could be obnoxious, and yes, ladies, we think that is obnoxious.)

While shopping recently at Radio Shack , Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was approached by a woman with a seemingly innocuous request to take a picture with him. But an instant before her mother snapped the photo with a cellphone camera, the woman tried to take off her shirt.

“It’s happened four or five times,” Tebow said with a sigh. “Most of the time I just dive out of the picture. Some people can just be crazy.”

For more interesting details in the lives of these three QBs, and even Deadspin which makes a living off their more embarassing moments, click here.

Update: Want to hear Dan Patrick and the Danettes discuss the story, click here. They speculate that the women in question are Tennessee fans laying in wait. They also name Tebow as Florida's next governor. Nice. (Hour Two, half hour mark)
