Tim Tebow has received some strange commemorations, but a Georgia man's recent tribute is undoubtedly the weirdest.
Don Perkins of Brunswick, Georgia, has decorated a seven-foot tall alligator with a Tebow jersey and a ball signed by Florida's three Heisman trophy winners-- Tebow, Steve Spurrier and Danny Wuerffel.
And this isn't just any old gator. The 700-pound Bull American alligator was captured by Perkins's cousin after it was deemed dangerous to a Florida community. Don Perkins had difficulty locating a taxidermist who would mount the alligator standing up, but he eventually found one in DeLand, Florida. The taxidermist used steel to reinforce the feet and lower body while stuffing the alligator with wood chips.
"This may be the only real gator of this size mounted standing up, doing a Heisman trophy pose in the country," Perkins wrote on eBay. "I'm not saying one is not in existence but none of the taxidermists we spoke with had ever seen or heard of anything like this before."
All told, this is one of the largest alligators ever captured in Florida and one of the largest mounted standing up. And it, along with the signed football, can be yours for a cool $10,000.
It is unclear whether the alligator performs miracles as well.
