Tim Tebow and Olympic runner Lolo Jones have a couple of things in common.
Both are world-class athletes who take their training very seriously. Also, both have expressed a desire to remain virgins until marriage.
So when Tebow's teammate Nick Mangold suggested on Twitter that the two should get together as a "match made in heaven," it seemed like an innocent joke. Jones, however, raised the stakes by responding to Mankins with the insinuation that Tebow might already be spoken for.
That sound you hear is the New York tabloids scrambling to find the lucky lady -- if she is out there -- and tell the story of Tim Tebow's secret girlfriend. For now, we'll just have to wonder.

Maybe we have our answer to why Tim Tebow has apparently turned down so many women eager to be with him. Olympian Lolo Jones, who has joked about the possibility of dating her fellow virgin, told Jets center Nick Mangold that she heard the quarterback has a secret girlfriend.
Things started when Mangold tried playing matchmaker between the two athletes. He tweeted the following...
The Jets have their work cut out for them if they want to make it back to the playoffs in 2012.
The New York Jets had high hopes for the 2012 season but unfortunately, things do not always go as planned. In the Jets case, they went from being a supposed Super Bowl contender at the start of last season to an 8-8 finish and a lot of questions that need answering.
When healthy, LaRon Landry is a Pro Bowl caliber talent. Unfortunately for Landry, Achilles injuries have hampered his play and curtailed his season the past few years. GWR's Andrew Soares provides a full run-down of the Jets prized safety.

Believe it or not, it's not just ESPN that is obsessed about Tim Tebow. The (in)famous New York media is already stepping up to the plate with TebowMania and we're still over 3 months away from the beginning of the 2012 NFL season. Deep within Peter King's Memorial Day edition of Monday Morning Quarterback was this interesting tidbit about Tim Tebow being covered...
The New York Jets have signed veteran offensive tackles Stephon Heyer and Ray Willis.
The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Heyer entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Washington in 2007 and started 33 games for the Redskins from 2007-10. In 2011 he was active for 12 games, including two starts, with the Oakland Raiders after signing as an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 3.
Since Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones admitted she is still a virgin a little over a week ago, the entire sports world has been trying to get her together with Tim Tebow. In the eyes of many fans and most of his Jets teammates, Tebow makes perfect sense for the 29-year-old. As you can see from the photo above that ESPNNewYork.com’s Jane McManus shared on Twitter Thursday, Nick Mangold...
The New York Jets are only the 19th most popular team in the NFL according to a recent ESPN poll. The Jets are ranked behind the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins. The Jets may be media darlings, but not many Americans identify them as their favorite team. At least you can say it's not a bunch of bandwagon fans cheering on the green and white every Sunday...
