Everson Griffen:

- Missed his son's birth to play in a football game and watched it on FaceTime
- Asked the game viewers for name suggestions
- Didn't have a name picked out before the child was born

Is that bad? Well, I don't wanna say bad, but how tacky is that? Maybe not the last one because I've heard of parents getting inspiration for the name once they saw the child... but I feel like you at least should have one planned out

Or am I just a bitter, angry man ruining what is supposed to be a cute story

I heard that they weren't exactly sure when she was going to give birth, and everson went to the game. Turns out it happened (somewhat) unexpectedly shortly before the game was starting, so they apparently facetimed. He then spontaneously wrote the "what should we name him" in marker on the t shirt under his jersey.
They didn't have a name picked out obviously, but they're adults and parents and can make their own decisions
I think that I personally would have a name picked out when having a kid but that's just me

Well that kind of sucks it happened too early. I guess at least it wasn't in the middle of the game when he wouldn't have been able to see it at all.

If I was an athlete I'd definitely try to line it up so my kid was born in the offseason, but of course they can make their own decisions, like you said. I guess some couples also try conceiving for months before it works out, and in that case, I probably wouldn't wait another year just so I could hit on an offseason

At least he's not like Adrian Peterson, who probably still has kids he doesn't know about and pays at least 10 grand a month in child support

I just saw on Twitter that everson's baby came 3 and a half weeks early and was very unexpected. I guess in that case it's not totally crazy to not have a name yet, but then again some people how what they want to name their future kids years before they even conceive

Peterson can show him how to take the switch to his kids

He should name him Eversonson

I'm sure I'm the first person to make this suggestion

I guess VT and Notre Dame were both overrated. I thought they overlooked us and last week was a letdown game for them but I guess they just aren't that good.

Hey SpeeD do you think he recovered that onside kick in bounds because I do not.
