Big news, everyone: PITB has accidentally discovered something remarkable. Follow along with us. Here's what happened on March 19:
The Vancouver Canucks locked up one of their top players on Friday as Ryan Kesler agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension. The deal will keep him with the club through the 2015-16 season.
The deal will pay Kesler $5 million per season.
You probably remember this. Let's continue. Here's what happened on December 19, exactly nine months later, to the day:
The Vancouver Canucks centre not only set up a goal Saturday afternoon in a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Rogers Arena, he then sped off to be with his wife, Andrea, who gave birth at 2:30 a.m. to 7 pound, 2 ounce Ryker.
I do believe we just discovered how they do celebrations in the Kesler family. It appears March 19 was an even busier day for Ryan Kesler than we realized.
Edit: here is a comment from Rachael, a Bulie who happens to be married to Daniel:
You would go there.
On the flip side, my womanly brain automatically thinks, "Oh, so he knew his wife was going to be having another baby and that made him think he should settle down for a while."
In support of this theory I submit the following: the gestation period for humans is actually 40 weeks, which is longer than 9 months, so she could have known she was pregnant just before he signed the contract.
Not that it matters a whole lot. It's still pretty funny. :)
