Finally, a U.S. athlete who refuses to compete in Russia — Tim Tebow!

RIA Novosti, which is currently running a rigged Olympic boycott poll on its English language site, reports that Tim Tebow has turned down a million bucks from Mikhail Zaltsman to play two games for his American rules football team, the Moscow Black Storm.
     Zaltsman, a gracious loser, said that if it was Tebow's decision and not his agents', then he is very upset and in that case, "we don't want him in our team anyway. We are looking for the people who pursue their dreams, not the ones who talk about it."
     Zaltsman complained that Tebow's agents would only let Tebow come to Moscow as a motivational speaker.
