How I Met Tim Tebow

(Story time! Edited, bumped. — Andy)

I went to UF from 2004 to 2009. Most people would laugh at that long stay but, hey, I was an engineering student who had three internships with prestigious government institutions. I was a partial owner of a club, and friends with numerous athletes who frequently occupied these institutions. And I met Tim Tebow.

I went to 34th Street and University for a party that I was invited to. I walked in and saw a 50-50 crowd: half of my friends, and half ... I had no idea who they were. I saw in a corner a group of Delta Gamma girls who were surrounding Tim Tebow. You have to remember: this happened when he was not famous on a national level. This is just when he was a student-athlete who had not broken through the Tennessee defensive line on a 4th and 2.

He was a nice guy, and when I walked over to him — wading through the DG girls after doing shots &mdas; and said "Hey, I'm Matt," he laughed and introduced himself. He had absolutely no interest in the DG girls and was just there because his friend was there from the tennis team. I asked him if Urban Meyer really said "I need a 220-pound QB to run this offense. Do you know anyone who would fit this description." Obviously, he laughed at my question.

At this point, a DG girl asked me if I wanted to do a peppermint schnapps/chocolate syrup shot. Obviously, I said yes. Tebow and the entire party watched. After that, they left. I still, to this day, think that this is hilarious.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
