    Sports Fans Name Son ESPN

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/E/ESPN_NAME?SITE=MIPON&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

    BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- 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.'"

    Would it be ok to name a kid Sportscenter or SI Swimsuit Issue?
