Tim Tebow Turns Down $1 Million Offer to Play in Russian

It was only for two games, seemed like easy money to me, but Tebow turned them down and the Russians are mad.

In an email received by Russian sports-news service R-Sport, Moscow Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman said that the American football superstar had said nyet.

“Unfortunately agents of Tim Tebow turn down our proposal. I hope that its Tebow’s agents’ fault that the contract wasn’t signed and Tim couldn’t do anything about it. If it was his decision – it’s very upsetting. And in this case we don’t want him in our team anyway.”

“We are looking for the people who pursue their dreams, not the ones who talk about it.”

Settle down Mikhail, no need to start a Cold War with Backup Jesus.
