The Patriots and the Giants may have been the star attractions at Super Bowl XLVI, but Tim Tebow sure got his fair share of attention this weekend — beginning with his introduction to “Extra” mainstay Maria Menounos.
The Broncos quarterback, known for his Christian faith and squeaky-clean reputation, reportedly was quite taken with the sexy TV entertainment reporter, overheard telling a pal at Friday’s ESPN party, “Wow! She’s not only gorgeous, she’s really sweet too.” The two were seen getting very cozy at that little fete. No word on whether anything will develop here, but Tebow and Menounos supposedly crossed paths (on purpose?) at several other Super Bowl bashes over the weekend, prior to the big game.

† Also at the “NFL Honors” show, the recently single Katy Perry gave a shoutout to Tebow, saying, “Tim, my parents said hi,” reminding everyone how the two share parents of deep religious conviction. The singer’s mother and father are pastors who likely would have preferred their daughter had married someone like Tebow — the son of missionaries — rather than that outrageous Brit Russell Brand, whom she’s now divorcing.
Percy is heir to his father’s title, Duke of Northumberland — along with a fortune estimated at $500 million.
In 2007, Driscoll told the Sun-Times about meeting his bandmates in the punk group Frantic at an eighth-grade birthday party: “We knew it was something special right off the bat.”
