An Interview With the Parents of Tebow Sanford Crumley

You remember how there was this story last week about Auburn fans in Chattanooga, Tennessee naming their son Tebow after that Heisman-winning University of Florida quarterback?

Well, you may know it from big blogs, but I know it as a tip I shot to Deadspin last Thursday.

And while the story was blowing up on Friday, I was in the process of sending emails back and forth to Tebow’s parents, Alli and Damon Crumley, hoping they would be awake and willing to do some sort of interview.

Is The Heisman For Frontrunners?

“And Heisman Trophy winners are champions,” writes Dave Curtis, keeper of the Orlando Sentinel’s “Swamp Things” blog, wrapping up his post, entitled “The Case Against Tim Tebow.”
