Huzzah! Tim Tebow is up for a Kids’ Choice Award as Favorite Male Athlete

Chitchatting with Will Smith. Hobnobbing with Taylor Swift. Rubbing elbows with the stars of Wizards of Waverly Place. Sneakily sucking down J├Ągerbombs backstage with Jack Black. Okay, maybe not the last one, but by all accounts, one would expect that Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow will be on-hand at the prestigious Nickelodeon’s 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards ceremony when it is held March 31 in Los Angeles to see if he will win the “Favorite Male Athlete Award.” Aww yeah. Tebow is gonna get slimed, y’all! Booyah!

Also nominated in the Favorite Male Athlete category along with Tebow are the following athletic superstars from the world of sport:

  • Derek Jeter
  • Michael Phelps
  • Shaun White

Seriously? That’s all they could come up with to take on rampant Tebowmania? The only one of the three who might pose a challenge to Tebow hoisting the much-coveted Orange Blimp is maybe, maybe Shaun White. Otherwise, winning this award will be like a walk in the park for Tebow.

I do, however, have one issue with the nominees: where in the heck is Jeremy Lin’s name? That’s bush league and a gross oversight, kids. As big of a gaffe as not inviting Alanis Morissette and the rest of her cohorts from You Can’t Do That On Television to make an appearance. Those guys are legends, man.
