Lori “Lolo” Jones, a track and field phenomenon on her way to the London Olympics, just confessed that at 29-years-old, she’s a virgin and saving herself for marriage.
On Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Jones said her purity is “a gift I want to give my husband." And though she’s holding strong, she has "been tempted” when dudes making the play have told her, “Hey, you know, if you have sex, it'll help you run faster."
We hate to state the obvious but someone needs to play matchmaker and introduce Lolo to NFL superstar saint Tim Tebow. A pro sports anomaly, he’s never been accused of any form of assault, convicted of a DUI, or apparently, done the nasty--saving himself for the sanctity of holy union.
It’s almost like Lolo appeared solely to plead directly to Tebow himself. And if Gumbel would have taken a cue from daytime TV, he would have had Tim backstage, waiting to drop into his trademark kneel, ring in hand. Skip the courtship you two, there’s no time.
Tebow’s philanthropic foundation, claims it’s “bringing faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.”
If an Olympic medal hopeful needing to get hitched in order to get… you know, in order to jump that hurdle a little higher, to bring home the gold, doesn’t qualify as a “darkest need”…
And Bronco fans, lets not even speculate on what might have happened in the 2011 playoffs had Tebow been able to “pull the trigger” on this whole thing long ago.
If romanticism for ratings, or the “do it for your country” arguments aren’t enough to seal this deal, let’s try one more angle: you might be the only two virgins over the age of 20 left on the planet. Seriously, it’s 2012. Who’s still holding out on this…. wait… what is it anyway? A “commandment” or something? Come on, those were written on a rock.
What would happen if Lolo and Tebow did actually fall in love, got married and then consummated that marriage? Perhaps a little Lolo-Tebow!
Take a look at what their baby might look like thanks to computer magic. Aw, so cute.
