The Super Bowl has descended upon my area—and so I won't be leaving my neighborhood for the entire weekend, thanks to the massive traffic jams and road closures promised by the mammoth Super Bowl crowds. (But no, I'm not bitter about being held hostage. Not at all!)
If you missed it in all the coverage of the Big Game, there's a pair of super-Seahawks fans by the surname of Mann, who gave their daughter the middle name 12th—as in 12th Man, the way most teams refer to their MVP fans, who help support their team to victory. I guess it's not any more out there than Harper Seven, the progeny of sporty David Beckham and his posh wife Victoria.
On Sunday, Peyton Manning is hoping to lead his Denver Broncos to victory. Perhaps he can help bring his name, Peyton, back from being squarely for the girls more into unisex territory. It's a name that means fighting-man's estate.
