Here's something we never ever expected to read today (or ever): Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is known to some of his teammates as the "Black Tim Tebow." The backstory: Amukamara who it turns out is actual royalty told Muscle and Fitness in a recent interview that he takes great pride in never putting alcohol in his body and maintaining his commitment to celibacy. Those two facts have everything to do with the comparison to the former Heisman Trophy winner. "Yeah some people call me the Black Tim Tebow" Amukamura admitted adding: "Yeah I am a virgin. I'm not ashamed to say that." Slow-clap for Amukamara. In a profession where we're regularly reporting on off-field issues that range from plain dumb to mouth-agape inconceivable it's nice to hear about a player who not only can live within the confines of the law but actually seems to be a decent human being. More good news for Amukamara: He's engaged thanks in part to teammates Aaron Ross and Corey Webster. "We met in New York" Amukamara said of his fiancee. "We were out dancing. I was just drawn to her. ... I said 'Are you waiting for someone?' And she said 'Yeah.' "So I didn't know what else to say after that so I started walking away" he continued. "But my teammates Corey Webster and Aaron Ross made me go back. They were like 'Go say something to her!' And they were cheering me on. She thought we were all rowdy and drunk and she didn't pay us any attention. Then later I was waiting for Ahmad [Bradshaw] and she came by and we struck up a conversation. I asked her for her email address because when someone asks for your number it might be too personal and you might not want to give it. But if you ask for their e-mail address they'll give it. I was right."
