Karina Smirnoff Tim Tebow

Karina Smirnoff Tim Tebow, Karina Smirnoff wants Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to strike a pose on the dance floor. The “Dancing With the Stars” pro, who turned 34 on Jan. 2, told People magazine that Tebow would be a worthy successor to the show’s all-star team of former and current NFL players – which includes Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Lawrence Taylor, Warren Sapp, Hines Ward and Jason Taylor.

“All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on ‘Dancing with the Stars,” she said at her Las Vegas birthday bash on Saturday. “Tim is a very talented athlete, that was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver.”

The 24-year-old Tebow has become a national celebrity in his first year as Denver’s starting quarterback, leading the underdog Broncos to a playoff berth. His season ended Saturday in a 45-10 dismantling at the hands of the New England Patriots. Tebow also has become a darling of religious Christians for his signature prayerful pose – a pose that has been repeatedly mimicked on the Internet in a sensation known as “Tebowing.”

A recent ESPN survey named Tebow as America’s favorite athlete – beating out the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers.

Tebow would also mark a nice consolation prize for “Dancing With the Stars” after Giants wide receiver sensation Victor Cruz – famous for his post-touchdown salsa celebration – turned down a spot on the show this month.

“They said it was like 20 hours a week or something like that,” Cruz told reporters. “I was like, ‘I’m not down, I’m not down with that.’ We’re in the postseason, that’s like 18 weeks. I’ve had enough practice.”
