The 'Boob Job' Fan

Dan Shanoff wasn't born a Florida fan, but that doesn't save the recent Gators convert from being called Tim Tebow's fluffer on the internets.

When Gelf last checked in with Dan Shanoff, he was half a year into his new life as a sports blogger. The former columnist had transferred his Daily Quickie format—an opinionated wrap-up of each weekday morning's sports news—onto his site. Nearly a year later, our follow-up interview finds Shanoff settling comfortably into life as an independent internet guru. In addition to his blog, Shanoff also writes a weekly college-football column for Deadspin, where commenters rejoice in ripping into his beloved Florida Gators and quarterback Tim Tebow. And he has founded a blog about his son Gabe, who just "sat around" at the age of nine months when we last spoke, but who is now, at 19 months, a Tebow fanatic. (Shanoff has also expanded beyond sports, as vice president of content for Associated Content, a platform for independent online publishers such as himself.)
