Chicago Man Didn’t Predict Super Bowl Trip 9 Months Ago

(a real baby Bear.  Let us know when you give birth to one of these, Colleen!)

Being originally from Chicago, I’m a Bears fan and I’m thrilled about the Super Bowl. But this is … well, kinda ridiculous.

PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) — Nine months pregnant and married to a fervent Bears fan with tickets to Sunday’s NFC Championship game, Colleen Pavelka didn’t want to risk going into labor during the game against the New Orleans Saints.

Due to give birth on Monday, Pavelka’s doctor told her Friday she could induce labor early. She opted for the Friday delivery.

Wait, it gets better or, uh, worse:

“If he wasn’t born by Sunday and the Bears won, I would have named him Rex,” after Bears quarterback Rex Grossman, joked Mark Pavelka, 28.

If this is really how Bears fans think, I feel really bad for all the kids born whilst Mike Tomczak was quarterbacking the team.

    I just feel shitty for all the guys who woke up early on Sunday and posted the same story! It’s a cruel, cruel world.

    True enough. But I give Kevin the edge in terms of image selection.

    Give Gerard the credit on the Bear, errr, Cub.

    Ohhhh, snap, is right. My bad, GC. Delete my post!

    sorry, Kevin. It’s got to stay. You have no idea how much trouble I had raising that bear from birth.

    I hope raising the bear was documented as a 1969 Disney TV special with a calming voice-over.

    I saw on the national news that the whole package including tickets, hotel, and air was going to be auctioned on ebay. I don’t see it there yet. Does anyone have the item number?
