(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.
