Darn.

I was going to make a crack about how he was going to be injured the whole time anyhow.

/i suppose that can still hold
//just not the same without the hyperbaric chamber... *sigh*

Not exactly, they are reporting an admission of photoshopping the new logo over the original manufacturer's logo, and 2008 being incorrect.


Tebow's rep explained that roughly 6 weeks ago, Tim signed a "rental agreement with the manufacturer."

The rep tells us Tim had the machine in his possession in Florida ... but had it shipped to Colorado in an effort to help the Denver Broncos rookie "acclimate to the high altitude in Denver."

The rep says someone from Pikes Peak Hyperbaric helped set up the chamber in Tebow's hotel room "3 or 4 nights ago" and then asked for a photo ... not knowing that someone would later "photoshop" PPH's website onto the machine.

TMZ spoke with a rep from PPH -- who admitted photoshopping his logo over the original manufacturer's logo and told us, "It wasn't a well thought out process."

Whatever it takes, man. Broncos dropping like flies who are attending a training camp for flies.

...and all of his urges that have been repressed by his religious upbringing will lead to him blowing Bubbles.

DISCLAIMER: I don't know shiat, particularly about doctorin'.

I thought the purpose of a hyperbaric chamber was to thin the blood with oxygen, essentially simulating training at altitude....but Denver is at a pretty good altitude, yes? That sounds dangerous rather than healthy.

He better bring a damn good pair of running shoes. One of those so-called "veteran" defenders is going to take his head right off. Right the fark off.

What the fark? Why in the fark would you have that in Denver? When I, a native Denverite, go to sea level, I can drink the locals under the table for about 96 hours, depending on my hemoglobin levels. And that's just Denver. When I lived in Leadville nothin could touch me. Shiat, at 10,000 feet nothing can bother you.

Tim Tebow will be Tom Brady lite, which is perfectly fine.

Am I the only one who finds it odd that for the past two years he has had his own personal hyperbaric chamber? I know students dont usually have that much money... Are his parents rich or something? Or could this be on Floridas dime?

I think the idea is that he has lived in Jacksonville for the last four years, which is at sea level, and thus his body isn't used to the altitude. The excess oxygen is supposed to ease the acclimation process.

From TFA:

The device -- which is said to "greatly accelerate the recovery process" -- was purchased by Tim in 2008 for just under $20,000 ... this according to Ric Rooney, owner of Pikes Peak Hyperbaric.


Listen, I'm not some wide-eyed innocent who thinks that college football is 100 (or even 4 to 5)% amateur, but am I the only one that notices that the 20-21 year old son of missionaries shouldn't have $20000 to blow on a hyperbaric chamber? In 2008, Tim was a junior at UF.

Just pay the damn players, already.

Actually, if I recall correctly his parents could likely afford this convenience. I think his parents had their own farm in Ocala as well as a house in Jacksonville where Timmy Tebag was raised. So yeah, $20,000 is probably less than they spent on Timmy's first car. So when he's gettin beat the living fark out of with the Gayturds, it made sense for his parents to get him a hyperbaric chamber.

This is true!

I'm headed from Indianapolis for a week long vacation in Steamboat, CO next week. I'm just buying a 6-pack the first night....I don't expect to last long.

/that's what he said

And when he comes out of the Hyperbaric Chamber, he'll be stronger than ever!
