Christian Ponder -- Vikings quarterback and husband of sideline reporter Sam Ponder -- is a new father. (Congrats! Parenthood is awesome, terrifying and exhausting.)

One could argue much of the success he has today is owed to his time at Florida State and coach Bobby Bowden. Christian obviously thinks so, naming his daughter after the legendary Seminoles coach.

I named my kid after myself, so I won't be judging anyone on their name. Additionally, "Bowden" is a pretty cool name.

Although passing up on any opportunity to use Sam's maiden name of STEELE is clearly a mistake.
