Some news from Mississippi-
Rusty is a fool or knucklehead. He got his five minutes of fame, but his boy his will spend his youth getting teased for the idiotic name given to him by his father. Children pick on other children who are different and being named ESPN is definitely different. Some adults will join in with the teasing.
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.
I just hope the mother has the common sense to re-name the boy.
