When Tim Tebow interviews go wrong: Reporter hits herself in head with tablet while trying to Tebow (video)

Jun 6, 2012, 12:09 PM EDT


Here we are at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala in New York City, where online reporter Shira Lazar is interviewing Tim Tebow (you may have heard of him). It’s an interesting exchange, awkward and somewhat amusing at the same time … the awkward part showcased when Lazar hits herself in the head with her Samsung Galaxy Tablet while attempting a half-baked “Tebow” kneeling move. Video below.

It also includes this wonderful exchange, which I call Double Entendre Theater:

Lazar: “Do you Google Alert yourself?”

Tebow: (Chuckles) “No, not really.”

Lazar: “You don’t read what people say about you?”

Tebow: “I’m too busy to just Google myself. Do you Google yourself?”

Lazar: “No. What are we talking about? Uh, no. Come on.”

For taking an interview with Tim Tebow at a Children’s charity function and dragging it into the gutter, we commend you, Shira Lazar.

    She clearly wants to get onto his unit but the Teebs is saving himself for marriage.

    He handled himself well. I think these kinds of interviews are the hardest for athletes. It’s when they usually say the dumbest things.

    I mean, she asked him if he’s been practicing. I’m sure he was like, “Haven’t you seen the news about the open practices, my interceptions, the battle for starter, etc.?”

      To elaborate, since my comment doesn’t totally make sense, I think it would have been easy for him to look like a jerk there when she asked that. I know I probably would have…

    Tebow will get in front of you to tell you all the good things he does while he insults Jesus Christ by endorsing the company honoring the pagan goddess NIKE for victory.

    Tebow is OK with honoring the pagan goddess Nike… God is NOT!
