Man wins bet with wife, will name newborn son after RG3

Robert Griffin IIIIt all started when the Washington Redskins visited the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

Redskins fan Emanuel Vega and his girlfriend Marissa Pena, a big Cowboys fan, placed a little wager on the event.

If the Cowboys win, their yet to be born son, due in April, will be named “Austin Miles Vega”. A Redskins win will get them “Robert Griffin Vega.”

The ‘Skins ended up thwarting a big Romo comeback to take home the victory, and so “RGV” it is.

“She didn’t really disagree with that at all, but she started saying she would name it Troy Aikman or Emmitt Smith, all these old Cowboys,” Vega said, via The Washington Post. “I would die if my son grew up to be a Cowboys fan. That’d be awful. I don’t even know how I’d feel.”

“We’ve had bets before, where she would wear my Redskins sweater at work if they won,” the 27-year-old Vega said. “But the name of our son? Determining what fan he would be? It was just insane that they won. That was even bigger than the division title.”
