Smirnoff hopes to get Tebow for her birthday

Dancing With the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff was at Gallery on Jan. 14 to celebrate her birthday, along with Mark Ballas, Kris Jenner, Teri Poli, Faye Resnick and Lara Spencer. Of her birthday wish, Smirnoff said, “All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on Dancing With the Stars. … Tim Tebow played so hard and I know that so many fans all across the country are so proud of him.”

She says she’s a Jets fan who jumped on the Tebow bandwagon but is now pulling for the Giants with the Jets and Broncos out of the picture. The same Giants who crushed the Jets’ playoff hopes this year. Rex Ryan would be apoplectic, but he just can’t turn down a woman who uses her feet so well.
