The story of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been the gift that keeps on giving for bloggers like me. Much of the sports article reading population was unaware of the degree of Hernandez’s excess baggage before the Boston area shooting death of Hernandez associate Odin Lloyd in the wee hours of June 17, 2013. Since then, all manners of unsavory tales about Hernandez have bubbled to the surface.
Among the many troubling stories of Hernandez’s past, he reportedly was in a bar fight in 2007 while a student at the University of Florida at The Swamp Bar in Gainesville, FL. Allegedly, the man on the receiving end of Hernandez’s fistic delivery lost hearing in one of his ears. Current Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow and Hernandez, briefly teammates in New England, were teammates at Florida, both taken in the 2010 NFL Draft. Reports are now surfacing that Tebow attempted to break up the fight.
Today’s retweet by Referee Logic (@RefereeLogic) just piles on to the endless angles of this sensational yet tragic story:
"Tim Tebow tried to break up the Hernandez bar fight by hanging onto Hernandez's leg and yelling "This isn't what Jesus would do!""
|Hernandez: "Hey, man. Stay in touch. I might be able to get you on with the Patriots."|
Tebow: "Great. I won't have to drive far to bail you out of jail!"
