What if He Becomes a Sox Fan?

2007_09_sports_cubs_baby.jpgThere are a lot of us who can be accused of taking our team spirit a bit too far. Some of us may spend a few paychecks to see our team play in the Super Bowl. Or maybe we name our dog after our favorite athlete.

Then there those like Paul and Teri Fields of Michigan City, Ind., who crossed a line with their level of obsession with a certain Chicago baseball. When choosing a name for their newborn son, they wanted something that would signify their love for the Cubs. His name? Wrigley Fields, of course.

The poor kid, born September 12, can now expect a lifetime of torment and ridicule for his stadiumesque name. While Dad suspects he may chose to go by his middle name, Alexander, down the road, Mom seems pretty insistent that he go by Wrigley.

Chicagoist is really hoping that the kid grows up to be a Sox fan just to spite his idiot parents. There are so many perfectly nice names to choose from ... say, Joshua, for instance.
