Tim Tebow Takes London

In advance of the Broncos' trip to London for the NFL's annual "Euro Game," Tim Tebow took questions from the UK press -- I demand my tabloid-style coverage!

Among the highlights:

*Yes, the globe-hopping Tebow has been to England before.

*They asked him what he would be typically dressing up as for Halloween. Tebow replied that he spends this week getting ready for Georgia. (Ahh, memories.)

*They asked him about how well Kyle Orton has been playing. Tebow said all the right things: "Whatever opportunity I get I’m trying to do my best with it."

*And, then, the Tebow money question: "As an athlete how important is it for you to send good messages to the wider public?" This is Tim's best thing. Take it away, Tim...

"I think one of the greatest things that pro athletes have is a platform that their sport gives them and to have so many people looking up to them.

"I believe it is their responsibility to be a role model to the kids and families that look up to them, because they can make a difference to so many people’s lives and bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need if they only try.

"That’s something I want to be is a better role model to kids and all the people looking up to me, and I would like to encourage other athletes to do the same, because who knows what a difference they could make if they just go into a hospital and spend time with kids and let them know that they care about them and encourage them.

"If more athletes took that approach they could really make a difference in people’s lives."

Let's see what the notoriously finicky London press does with that.

    I was really looking forward to this game, b/c I thought this would be the 1 game this year I could count on being shown in my area. Wrong again. *sigh*
