Despite a conflicting account on Wikipedia, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow did not help Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher propose to his girlfriend, actress and Florida graduate Joanna Garcia, FloridaToday.com reports.
According to the report, Swisher’s Wikipedia page said, "Football player Tim Tebow assisted Swisher with requesting Garcia’s hand in marriage, by speaking to her parents and being present during the proposal." That passage has been removed.
Before a Yankees-Rays game in St. Petersburg, Fla., FloridaToday.com columnist Peter Kerasotis asked Swisher if the entry was true.
"That’s total BS!" Swisher said, according to the report. "(Bleep) no! I don’t need some other dude to ask my girl to marry me. I’m a Major League Baseball player. I’m a man. I asked her on the balcony at my place in New York City. Tim Tebow wasn’t there. You need to squash that story, dude."
Tebow has, however, assisted in at least one marriage proposal, according to the report. At an autograph signing earlier this year, a man asked his girlfriend to marry him and had Tebow present the engagement ring.
