You guys may have noticed that I have been quiet for a few weeks.

Unfortunately, on June 24th my wife was admitted to the hospital. She was 6 months pregnant and had high blood pressure. She was diagnosed with a condition called pre-eclampsia that can be fatal to mother and baby.

On the 4th of July, my son was born at 6 and a half months gestation weighing 1 lb 9 oz. His name is Maddox and he will be spending a couple of months in the NICU, but he is doing really well.

Wife is recovering as well, but... just wanted to let you guys know why I've been so quiet.

I'll be back to normal when things settle down.

This whole situation has busted my balls a lot worse than you guys ever could LOL

We did think about calling him Sam, since he was born on 7/4... but I liked Maddox too much.

George Washington Rodriguez!!! If not a future President that kid would at least be the QB who ushers in a new age of dominance for the Fins.

Keep up the good work and stay strong bud.

1#9oz .... I cannot even imagine, Rich. I'll bet it was the most beautiful thing you ever saw.

Not really. Premature babies look like miniature old people. :)

But almost a month later he is gaining weight and filling in and looks cute as hell!

Maybe we should have a Tannehill debate to welcome Rich back to the forums after his break.

Well he does look human, so Gary Ramey is clearly not the dad.
