"That phase was more during my freshman year of high school. I got out of it by junior year." That's some very strong deadpan humor, about what a lot of people would find a dicey topic.
Kenny Mayne: The lack of privacy your generation faces is unbelievable. Does it ever get unbearable?
Tim Tebow: There are pros and cons. You have a great platform to influence people. But sometimes you’d like to go to dinner or play golf without having people waiting when you get off the course. I just look at it as a pro and realize I have an opportunity and a responsibility to be a good role model for kids and give them someone to look up to. That’s my goal.
KM: So what you’re saying is you can’t run a methamphetamine lab?
TT: That phase was more during my freshman year of high school. I got out of it by junior year.
KM: What’s your opinion on homeschooling, since you went that route?
TT: The methamphetamine route?
KM: Wow. I had no idea you’d be so liberal.
I have a longer post about it at TimTeblog, and the Palm Beach Post's Ben Volin has more excerpts. I try very hard not to talk too much Tebow here, given that I have an entire separate blog dedicated to the subject, but this struck me as amusing enough to post here.
