In an interview on HBO’s Real Sports that aired on Tuesday, 29-year-old Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones said that her remaining a virgin is “the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
It didn’t take long for Twitter-philes to jokingly draw a connection between the devout Jones and similarly devout and self-professed virgin Tim Tebow. Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News reported that Tebow’s New York Jets teammates even got into the action on Thursday.
For the track/Lolo Jones junkies: When Tebow entered locker room today, several Jets players started chanting, "Lolo! Lolo!"—

The Twitter-savvy Jones then had her fun with Tebow as well.
Ask Tebow if he wants a glass of milk. If he says yes, ask him if he prefers chocolate. if he says no, then no more Tebow date suggestions—
