Has this news slipped under the radar, or am I just the only person in the world who didn't realize Bill Simmons and his wife are expecting their second child soon?
The Sports Gal mentioned in her weekly mini-rant that she is "eight and a half months pregnant and [has] a giant bowling ball in my stomach. I can't sleep and I pee every hour on the hour. Every time I lay down, I feel like someone's kicking field goals inside me." Have I ever mentioned how happy I am that men are physically incapable of carrying children?
If I'm reading everything correctly, she has about six weeks left before TSG v2.0 is spawned. As she notes, this means that the first male child of Bill Simmons will be born near the end of October - timing that could prove terrible for a huge fan of the Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots.
Her reaction to his sports viewing habits is tremendous, however:
"I wish Bill was carrying this kid and I could go over to a friend's house to watch TV for eight straight hours under the flimsy excuse that "it's my job." Yeah, it was also your job not to knock me up in time for football season."
I have a new appreciation for this woman. That's some raw, angry, "I'm in my third trimester and I hate anything with a penis" commentary right there.
