Recently, a Cleveland radio host Cherise Navidad stated that she would name her second child after Dirk Nowitzki if the Mavericks won the series. They did and the Twitter contract will be kept.
We get more from New York Daily News:
She was so desperate to beat James, that she tweeted out that she would name her soon-to-be-born son after the Mavericks’ MVP if they won.
“When you want someone to beat LeBron so badly, you will do anything,” she said.
Soon the promise spread among her thousands of followers and to Dallas followers – some of whom thought she was nuts and some who appreciated the gesture.
Minutes later, the Mavericks staged a huge comeback, Nowitzki had the MVP trophy in his hands and the radio host’s unborn child had a name.
A week later, she told the Daily News that although her husband gets to name this baby – she named their first – she will follow through with the promise to name her child Dirk, even if it’s just his middle name.
She said the best part of it all will be explaining to her son why he’s named after a Dallas Mavericks star.
I still think the best part is trying to explain to the kid about what constitutes as a legal binding contract these days is Twitter.
All Hail The Twitterverse!
