Forget whether or not he can ever be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL.
Tim Tebow is now stirring up debate of a different kind.
The signal caller and devout Christian is scheduled to speak at First Baptist Dallas on April 28, a giant establishment in Texas whose pastor – Robert Jeffress – has received a lot of attention for anti-gay and anti-Semitic comments.
In October 2011, Jeffress said Islam and Mormonism are heretical religions “from the pit of hell,” and added that “you can’t be saved being a Jew.”

Former NFL star Terrell Owens engaged in an unusual run-in with police this morning, as a woman called 911 because he refused to leave her property.
According to TMZ, LAPD officers arrived around 4:30 a.m. to a residence in Los Angeles.
Once on the scene, they were told Owens had been banging on the woman’s door for three hours and refused to leave, despite constantly being told he was not welcome.
The woman did not wish to press any charges and Owens finally departed after the cops arrived, ending the strange crisis without making much of a protest.

Bar Refaeli has had a profound impact on many young males, but none more so than Jesse Helman, who made out with her in last night’s Super Bowl ad for GoDaddy.
His life has been transformed for the better, he says.Bar Rafaeli Super Bowl Commercial
The ad, which somehow made Danica Patrick irrelevant, touted the sexy side (Bar) and smart side (Jesse) of domain registration staple GoDaddy.
“I’ve actually had guys tweet me that they wish they were me, and girls tweet me saying they wish they were Bar,” Helman says of his Super Bowl spot.

Manti Te’o has spoken to a reporter for the first time in days and gone on the record:
He played no role in Lennay Kekua and duping the public into believing he had a girlfriend who died of cancer.
“I wasn’t faking it. I wasn’t part of this,” Te’o told ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap last night in a two-and-a-half hour, off-camera interview.
The Notre Dame linebacker and NFL prospect even said he didn’t know for total certainty that Kekua was a fabrication until Wednesday night when Ronaiah Tuiasosopo called him and admitted to the hoax.
“Two guys and a girl are responsible for the wholeMore >
Manti Te’o has spoken out about the Lennay Kekua death hoax, as it’s now been verified that the Notre Dame linebacker was never dating a Stanford student by that name last year.
But the Heisman Trophy finalist is denying reports that he played a role in duping America, instead releasing a statement that says he fell victim to someone on the Internet.
“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicatingMore >
One year ago, it was uncertain whether Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson would even suit up in 2012, due to a pair of gruesome injuries.
But now the former is headed for the playoffs, the latter may set the all-time rushing record and both stars have been named Pro Bowl starters.
The NFL announced the rosters last night for its meaningless postseason celebration, with Manning under center for the AFC and Peterson in the backfield for the NFC.
With an asterisk denoting the starters, here is a look at the selected offensive and defensive players for both conferences:
A disturbing, shameless, yet kind of hilarious new tabloid report claims the infamous 1994 O.J. Simpson murders were actually caught on video.
Yes, the National Enquirer claims it has video from O.J.’s ALLEGED (totally real) slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
On the one hand, the Enquirer reached a new low with this one.
On the other hand … admit it, you kinda wanna read this, right?
How on earth this celebrity news (term used beyond loosely, like Lindsay Lohan loosely) publication keeps going back to the OJ well, we have no idea.

If Chad Johnson’s Evelyn Lozada tattoo was/is an attempt at patching things up, what he may have instead is a permanent reminder of what he lost.
She’s not taking him back.
Lozada is adamant that they are over after his arrest on August 11 for domestic battery. “You can’t repair this,” she told People. “You just can’t.”
After a nuclear argument set off by a receipt for condoms in their car, Lozada went to the hospital for stitches, and Johnson spent a night in jail.
An upcoming reality show starring the couple, Ev and Ocho, was canceled by VH1, and he was also cut by the Miami DolphinsMore >
The Beastie Boys’ MCA, real name Adam Yauch, has died.
The hip hop pioneer was 47. In 2009, MCA announced he was being treated for cancer of the parotid gland and a lymph node. He underwent surgery and radiation therapy.
It is unclear as of this posting whether Yauch’s death was related to cancer.
MCA co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 (yes, 1979) with Mike D, and Ad Rock, and went on to churn out some of the most iconic albums in hip-hop.
They trio landed their big break after working with young producer Rick Rubin, who would sign them to his newly-formed Def Jam Recordings in 1984.
