    Parents name baby after ESPN

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15168029/

    BILOXI, Miss. - Leann Real promised her husband, an avid sports fan, that if they ever had a son he'd get to pick the name. ESPN Montana Real was born this week at Biloxi Regional Medical Center.

    Rusty Real, of D'Iberville, chose ESPN (pronounced Espen) after the sports network and Montana after football legend Joe Montana.

    Baby ESPN isn't alone.

    Three others were cited in a 2005 report on tivocommunity.com about the network's 25th anniversary. They are Espn Malachi McCall in Pampa, Texas; Espn Curiel in Corpus Christi, Texas; and Espn Blondeel in Michigan.

    "We were the talk of the hospital," Rusty Real said. "The nurses kept asking my wife if she was really going to let her husband name him ESPN. She said, 'Oh, yes.'"

    Does Espen Knutsen(sp?) still play for the Columbus Blue Jackets?

    That did kind of garner some attention awhile back.

    I wonder if its a girl if they will name it HGTV or Soap?

    I am sure you were... just not in the manner you think, Rusty.

    This is unReal... well it is a Real... just unthinkable!

    I'm thinking Versus Real or Golf Channel Real.

    I could see something like this happening 10-15 years ago, when ESPN covered real sports. But now?

    This new dad must be a big fan of poker and rodeo.

    Maybe I'll name my firstborn "The Ocho".

    Re: Parents name baby after ESPN

    I think when parents do things like this, they should also be forced to change THEIR names. Like, the father's new name could be "Moron".
