For all his merits, Tim Tebow is one stiff date.
When Iowa high school student Rachel Bird invited him to her prom via Twitter, the single NFL star did not respond. Then she took matters into her own hands and fashioned a cardboard cutout Tebow instead.
"I didn't want to go with just anybody just to have a date," Bird told The Des Moines Register. So she and her father made a cardboard version of the quarterback whom Bird admired for his faith – and good looks.
Though he didn't utter a word all night, cardboard Tebow (who wore Bird's father's cologne to mask the wood glue smell used to create the cutout) was a hit.
