WASHINGTON - There are sports fans, and then there are SPORTS FANS.

One couple from Alabama would clearly fall into the latter category.

Summer and Steven Steele have named their new baby boy Krimson Tyde, reports

"The reason we named him Krimson is that we are big Alabama fans and it is a very unique name and we loved it," Summer Steele tells the Alabama Media Group.

Summer says she has received a ton of media attention for her son's name, along with hate mail.

Interestingly, the Alabama Media Group reports that of the 76 girls born in the U.S. in 2012 that were named Crimson (Krimson or Krymson) 35 were from Alabama. Also, nine boys were named Crimson and six girls were named Auburn.
