Every now and then, a story will appear about some dopey parents naming their newborn child something stupid, like Saban or Kobe or Espn, in honor of their favorite coach, cut of beef or, uh, TV station. Usually, the story is accompanied by a picture of the proud parents sitting in the living room of their
trailer pre-fabricated home, wearing their finest team sweatpants. These people are then mocked by the rest of us, life goes on, the kid ends up dropping out of high school to become a produce clerk, the end.
None of this scorn and ridicule applies, however, to a certain member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison student government. Her name, you see, is Elizabeth Wrigley-Field, and she deserves nothing but respect.
