So much for the closed training sessions. Well - I suppose there are exceptions to every rule, and in this instance, Tim Tebow is the exception. The former Heisman winner and NFL quarterback spent three hours watching Manny train at the Wild Card Gym. Despite this being the first time the two have met, it's being said that the two are getting along like kindred spirits. And let's face it, I'd probably be happier to have Tebow in my corner, than say...Mitt Romney.

Manny took to social media over the weekend to post a picture with his brother-in-faith.

Good to be with my brother in Christ @TimTebow

Manny has also been posting video snippets of his training almost everyday on social media outlets, making sure to thank the lord in every caption (which don't seem to be appearing here for some reason)...

Day 16 of my gym work out. Thank you Lord.

For those of you interested in following Manny's training camp remotely, I'd suggest following his Instagram page. As for whether or not you think Tim Tebow will prove to be a good luck charm, well, I'll let you all debate that in the comments section.
