Well isn’t this precious? Not only will Eli Manning soon share a stadium with Tim Tebow, but the Super Bowl-winning Giants quarterback will also welcome the Jets rival into his New Jersey neighborhood!
Various news outlets reported that Tebow, the Jets recently-acquired backup quarterback chose a residence not in the so-called golf course community where his teammate QB1 Mark Sanchez lives, but instead, decided to shack up a mere two blocks away from Manning in Hoboken, NJ.
Between his popularity and paycheck, Tebow can afford the 2-bedroom rental in a 13-story luxury condo where units can cost up to $10k a month, according to the New York Post.
Just a five minute walk away toward the Hudson is the $2.2 million waterfront condo is that, Manning, wife Abby and baby Eva call home.
Aside from now living in the same hood, these two might have more in common than we’d expect. After all, both Manning and Tebow seem like the sports equivalent of a Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, as they were probably that goofy-looking kid growing up who blossomed into a talented, mega-celebrity as an adult. Both played in the SEC and have won two championships, Tebow at Florida, Manning with the Giants. This situation has “besites” written all over it!
Can can you see it? Late-night hangouts comprised of popcorn and pillow fights between football talk? Perhaps Manning and Tebow will watch film of the 49ers together as the Jets face San Francisco in Week 4, the Giants in Week 6?
The boys could easily bond over the harsh New York media and the enormous pressure both have faced. Manning, unfairly compared to brother Peyton throughout his career career, could commiserate with Tebow who wasn’t even expected to have a career playing quarterback in the NFL.
Perhaps the church-going Tebow could babysit young Ava from time to time, allowing Eli and Abby to have an occasional night out on the town? Tebow could be the Mannings’ Manny.
Even better, Manning and Tebow could spend sleepless nights competing against each other in Madden, taking turns playing as themselves while the other plays as Tom Brady and the Patriots. That sounds like fun!

The world would be a far less entertaining place without Dennis Rodman. The former NBA rebound gobbler is known for pulling stunts and pushing the envelope. From staging a personal sit-in on the court during a game to wearing a wedding dress to promote his book, Rodman has seemingly seen and done it all.
But leave it to the creative mind of the five-time NBA champion to find yet another way to expand his career portfolio.
Rodman is launching a topless women’s basketball team to represent Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club, a New York strip club. The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year will coach the team, obviously.
“I don’t know too many men that don’t like a good-looking woman running up and down around the court,” Rodman told the New York Post.
HA! Amazing. I guess it’s all good, as long as Rodman doesn’t name his team “Gold Club.”
We can’t give Rodman all of the creative credit for this business venture as he got the idea from former Atlanta Hawk Spud Webb who had helped rival strip club Rick’s Cabaret start a topless team. According to the New York Post:
“[Rodman] launched his team effort after Rick’s Cabaret announced in November that it had formed Rick’s Basketball Association to cheer up forlorn NBA fans during the lockout. Teams popped up in several cities, but the league was disbanded when the lockout ended. Webb is now back at his regular job [running the NBA D-League team, Texas Legends].”
Rodman is such a piece of work, telling the Post, “You don’t have to have too much experience, just know how to throw the ball into the hole.” Rodman says players must be at least 5-foot-10, but no word on whether or not there is a cup size requirement.
Should this team get off the ground, have no fear when the ladies come on to the court clothed. You’ll get your money’s worth. “They’ll come out in a T-shirt or a tank top, but when the game starts, they’ll go topless,” said Rodman.
