Shutdown Corner - NFL

With 96 yards rushing and two touchdowns, LaDainian Tomlinson(notes) had, by far, his best day of the year. My guess, though, is that none of that even came close to being the highlight of his day.

Before the game started, Tomlinson found a small gift in his locker from his wife, LaTorsha. The note attached read, "Open immediately!" He did, and inside he found a pregnancy test from his wife. It was positive.

An overjoyed Tomlinson relayed the news to the media after the game.

"It was weird," he said in the postgame press conference. "I thought it was going to be a necklace or something. It was a pregnancy test."

It will be their first child. Four years ago, LaTorsha had a miscarriage that devastated the couple, so you can imagine how happy they are with today's news. You can read more here about the aftermath of the 2005 miscarriage, and read more here about LaTorsha.

My warmest congratulations to both of them.
