For the love of... hubbie

Now that's love (or something else...)

CHICAGO -- Chicago school teacher Colleen Pavelka knows how much her husband loves the Bears. Apparently, she loves him even more.

Colleen chose to have the birth of their second child induced a few days early so Mark Pavelka could attend Sunday's NFC Championship showdown between the Bears and the New Orleans Saints.

The baby was due Monday. But when Colleen went in for an appointment Friday afternoon, her doctors told her she could opt for an early delivery. She decided to do so.

After nearly six hours of labor, 8-pound, 9-ounce Mark Patrick Pavelka was born Friday night.

I could see myself doing that, but so that I could enjoy the game :-), it's a sickness.

If she really loved her husband, she would have named the boy Lovie Urlacher Pavelka.

Dave, that has a nice ring to it!

That's a nice story -- we've scheduled our second delivery for the morning of February 6th. I don't think my wife would take a football game as an acceptable reason to reschedule it!!:-)
