On Friday at the St. Jude Golf Classic, Angel Gonzalez -- quarterback Tim Tebow's business partner at XV Enterprises -- captured the image seen to the left of Tebow warming up on his iPhone and posted it on twitter. With Tebow's biceps being as large as they are, the picture has been rapidly traveling across the web and has been dubbed a 'photoshop' by many. However, Gonzalez says it is real and Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post as well as Bill Williamson of ESPN have both confirmed it to be legitimate. It should also be noted that images captured on a phone, especially action shots, can sometimes look distorted and exaggerated (which may or may not be the case here).
Some have questioned the picture's legitimacy because Tebow is wearing a glove on his left hand and he is left handed (golfers wear gloves on their non-dominate hand). While that is puzzling, it appears Tebow wore a glove on his left hand for most of the tournament and perhaps wasn't wearing his right handed glove while warming up (for whatever reason).

It should be taken into consideration that we're talking about a 6'3, 245 pound, 23-year old NFL quarterback, who is known as a workout warrior. Denver's starting running back, Knowshon Moreno, weighs 35 pounds less than Tebow, and he's no small fellow. So while the picture itself is in question, there's no question that Tebow is a extremely strong and large player.
Web designer Justin Kirscht of JustinCredibleDesign.com does a lot of work with graphics and photoshop and he says that there are few that are talented enough to do such work and that no one would take the time to make such an image, leading him to believe that the picture is in fact genuine.
Real, fake or maybe a little enhanced, the image doesn't prove or disprove anything, every Broncos fan knows that Tebow is a big guy and has an even bigger passion for the game.
