You wouldn't be surprised that we have received tons of emails from fans during the USA's run to the Group C title...but this one might take the cake. It's true, we swear.
Name: Chad Mckay
Subject: World Cup Baby
Message: I'm writing this from a Harrisburg Hospital. I ended up here with my wife because of Landon Donovan. We went to Molly Brannigan's (an Irish bar/restaurant in downtown Harrisburg) to watch the USA-Algeria Game. My wife's due date was July 3rd. It seems that Landon Donovan forced the issue, though. The moment he scored the goal in extra time her water broke. It must have been the tension followed by the elation. It literally happened as the celebration erupted. So here I sit, as my wife naps, waiting for baby. Landon made 300 million American rejoice with a victory but he also caused one to be born (sooner than later). I'm not sure which is more impressive.
We knew Landon 's goal was powerful stuff, but a new birth inducement drug? That's epic.
We are thinking Lando if it's a boy, Landina if it's a girl? Congrats to the Mckay family on their World Cup baby!
