tebow jets getty ACM Awards 2012: Blake Shelton ribs Tim TebowIt might be the NFL offseason, but apparently it’s still Tebowmania at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

During the opening monologue of the Sunday (April 1) broadcast, hosts Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire had some fun at the expense of Tim Tebow. While discussing the much ballyhooed trade of Tebow from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, the hosts made a reference to the QB’s famed chaste ways.

“I guess the Broncos were so anxious to win a Super Bowl, they were actually willing to sacrifice a virgin,” Shelton says.

Only 157 days until the NFL season kicks off. Let the jokes begin.
