You can count billionaire and megalomaniac Donald Trump among Tebow’s supporters. Whether that’s good or not, we’re not sure, but Trump just paid a lot of dough for some Tebow gear.
Fortunately, it was for a good cause.
Trump paid $12,000 for an autographed Tebow jersey and helmet on Saturday at an auction for Susan G. Komen For The Cure, a breast cancer research charity.
The Trumpster came out the winner of a bidding battle and probably totally overpaid for the items he won, but hell, he can afford it and the money went to a noble endeavor.

Although we didn’t know Trump was a Tebow fan, he does have football connections. Trump owned the New Jersey Generals, a USFL team. Trump signed both Doug Flutie and Herschel Walker, who earned a then-surprising $1 million a year. He’s also widely believed to have led the league to its ultimate demise because of his gigantic ego. That’s another story, though.
As far as the Tebow garb, it was probably a good investment. Broncos exec John Elway said Tebow will come into training camp as the team’s undisputed No. 1 quarterback next year.
