It’s about time the dating rumors began.

Tim Tebow, the NFL quarterback of the moment, has created quite a buzz for himself with his unlikely wins, do-good nature and a very personal public declaration – he’s a virgin.

So when newly-single Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn was spotted watching Sunday’s game from the Tebow family box, it sent tongues wagging. But don’t break out the Timsey or TeVonn nicknames just yet.

“Hearing a lot of crazy rumors but rest assured I am NOT dating Tim Tebow (or anyone else),” Vonn Tweeted.

“I’m just friends with his family,” she added.

Any guesses who the next purported girlfriend might be?
