Colleen Benson was born Jan. 26, 1986—just in time to watch the Chicago Bears win their last Super Bowl. If not for one misstep, Chicago running back Walter Payton could have played a big role in her naming.
Benson's parents wanted to incorporate the day's historic event into their daughter's name. They considered "Payton" or Payton's nickname, "Sweetness." But after Payton's first-quarter fumble, they decided on the middle name "Patricia." [Link]
