"If Tebow beats the Steelers today, I will post a pic of me Tebow'ing..."

Three weeks ago today, in the run up before the Denver-Pittsburgh Wild Card game, my best friend Tarantino made the following boast....

Now, as any football fan knows, not only did the Broncos win that game, but they beat the Steelers when Tim Tebow threw a game-winning TD on the first play of OT.

Over the intervening weeks, there have been a number of posts by different Otters, gently reminding Tarantino of his bet - just in case he forgot. I have not looked at everything he's posted since that fateful gaffe, but to my knowledge our buddy yet to man-up.

Rather than run around the board to follow him as he posts in different forums, I figured it would be best to just have this one single thread so folks could follow the story as it unveils. Will we see a Tebow from him or won't we?


[Edited to add]: Here's a link to jump right into the middle of the Wild Card weekend thread, starting with kickoff of the Tebow-Tarantino game: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-talk...08-12-a-7.html

He didn't say where he would post the picture, just that he would post one. Suckers.

I bet that we never see the picture. And its ok for me to make that bet, because I don't have to follow through with it.

I never thought the day would come when people would be begging Tarantino to post a picture of himself and he was refusing.

Glad to see I'm still always on your mind, kenbuzz.

You're still on my ignore list, so I hadn't noticed you bugging me for pictures.

This isn't about me, bubba. Whatever spin you want to put on it, that's all fine by me. I'm not the only one waiting to see if you're going to man-up or not.

But since you're now peeking at what others are posting, here's one you missed from a week ago:

Ah, isn't that convenient?

You made your pre-game boast. You virtually guaranteed victory AND came up with a self-imposed forfeit that you would pay if your team lost. Nobody prompted you to do that. Allegedly taking that photo and only showing it to your friends is a cop-out. And claiming that the folks here are douchebags - dude, what are you, a n00b? EVERYBODY here is a douchebag, you and me included.

Bottom line: You boasted. You obligated. You didn't follow through.

You've got a choice. Let me and the rest of the douchebags here harass you for the rest of your days (and you know we will!) .... or just man-up and get it over with.

Psst - we're actually getting more mileage out of this now that you're stonewalling. It's your choice how this plays out.

He has you blocked, dude. He's not going to be able to read any of this.

Naah, I know he's looking.

Especially since you're quoting me and he's not got you blocked.

I'm sure I am too. Most people that say anything to him get blocked.

Well, you may as well add me. I always knew you were a camwhore, but I didn't know you're a chickenshit liar as well.

I guess there are 2 options, post a Tebowing pic, or get harassed relentlessly from now until DT goes out of business. It will at least become Otter Sports lore handed down from poster to poster if no pic emerges. Should be fun either way.

Perhaps a temporary modification of his User Title will provide some positive reinforcement? Something like DVD Talk Tebow'ing Legend?

A common trait of bandwagon fans.

I thought a user name change would be in order? Tarantebow?

He's an attention whore, so he'll hold off for as long as possible, and then post the picture when everyone has started to forget, thus renewing the talk about him.

I don't have the power to do that, but it's an excellent suggestion!

I second this suggestion, especiallly since the name change to Tarantebow is apparently not doable.

By the way, I would appreciate it if every post I make to this thread - including this post - was quoted by someone so that Tarantino will be certain to see it. And since he may block that person, each subsequent post should probably be quoted by a different person.
