lindsey vonn tim tebow Lindsey Vonn dating Tim Tebow? No, she's just friends with his familyTim Tebow has become the NFL athlete du jour lately, coming off the bench for the Denver Broncos to go 7-1 over eight starts, earning 14 total touchdowns to only five total turnovers, and winning the seven games in dramatic fashion.

So naturally it’s time for the rumor mill to start up. And of course, the rumors are about a pretty blonde. That just seems to be how things go for these NFL QBs (somewhere, Jay Cutler and Tony Romo are nodding).

But Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn insists there is nothing going on between herself and Tebow. Von, who announced last month she was divorcing her husband Thomas, tweets:

“Hearing a lot of crazy rumors but rest assured I am NOT dating Tim Tebow
(or anyone else). I’m just friends with his family. xo, LV.”

Vonn also writes in her blog for the Denver Post:

A lot of people are wondering what’s up
with me and the Tebows. I’m just friends with the family. I met Tim and
his brother Pete at the ESPY Awards like three or four years ago in the
gym — we were working out there. I spent more time with Tim and his
brother at the V Foundation Golf Tournament, and this year at the ESPYs.

Tim presented me with my ESPY award this year, and we kind of
chatted. I said, “If you want to come up to Vail and ski, let me know.”
Robby invited me to one of their games a few weeks ago. Then we ended up
being able to race at Beaver Creek, so he came up for that last

I pretty much know their whole family now. They’re
great people. It’s pretty awesome to be able to hang out with them —
and to be able to witness the amazing things Tim and the Broncos can do.

They would make a darn cute couple. And just think of how athletic their babies would be! They’d be super children! But for now, apparently this is just another rumor.
