Tim Tebow's Alter Ego? Just Call Him 'Tommy Turbo'

New, 1 comment

Tim Tebow likes to go incognito at times, it seems, but the name he has chosen to go by can probably draw plenty of attention as well (via Yahoo! Sports):

But it was during a conversation with two attractive female servers behind the scenes where the Denver Broncos superstar showed his real sense of humor. Tebow told the ladies, who were taking a break from serving the crowd of around 1,000 guests, that his real name was "Tommy Turbo."

"He told us he was called Tommy Turbo, not Tebow," said a waitress named Deborah, 26. "He said it was because he was a really good chess player and played really fast. He was pretty funny and we had a good time talking to him. I know he is famous but he was really friendly and a lot of fun."

Tommy Turbo? Well, start writing your own jokes about that.

Here are the Tommy Turbos Tebow is not:

He is not Tommy Turbo's Affordable Saab + of Central Ohio, where you can get "the most cost-effective automotive repairs in Central Ohio."

Nor is he Tom Turbo, a bike that is able to do 111 tricks, according to Wikipedia.

Nor is he Tommy Turbo of Tommy Turbo & The Turbervilles, and English Indie/Soul band.
