Accidental Discoveries: Ryker Kesler is a Party Baby

Big news, everyone: PITB has accidentally discovered something remarkable. Follow along with us. Here’s what happened on March 19:

The Vancouver Canucks locked up one of their top players on Friday as Ryan Kesleragreed to terms on a six-year contract extension. The deal will keep him with the club through the 2015-16 season.

The deal will pay Kesler $5 million per season.

You probably remember this. Let’s continue. Here’s what happened on December 19, exactly nine months later, to the day:

The Vancouver Canucks centre not only set up a goal Saturday afternoon in a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Rogers Arena, he then sped off to be with his wife, Andrea, who gave birth at 2:30 a.m. to 7 pound, 2 ounce Ryker.

I do believe we just discovered how they do celebrations in the Kesler family. It appears March 19 was an even busier day for Ryan Kesler than we realized.

Edit:here is a comment from Rachael:

You would go there.

On the flip side, my womanly brain automatically thinks, “Oh, so he knew his wife was going to be having another baby and that made him think he should settle down for a while.”

In support of this theory I submit the following: the gestation period for humans is actually 40 weeks, which is longer than 9 months, so she could have known she was pregnant just before he signed the contract.

Not that it matters a whole lot. It’s still pretty funny. :)

    I assure you it was an accidental discovery while working on a completely unrelated post.

    But yes, it's very creepy.

    Feel I should mention that those 9 months were only 5 days off of a full 40 weeks. And a test wouldn't show positive until at least a week after conceiving.

    And unless they were trying to get pregnant, they would have no reason to be checking pregnancy tests after a week. And if they were trying to get pregnant, it would mean the contract wasn't exactly a revelation to settle down, as it was something that was already planned to be done.

    Then again the birth could've been a week premature, rendering most what I said useless. Then again it could've been a week delayed…

    Also, this is a very weird discussion, and I have no idea why I'm taking part in it.

    Scrolling through this quickly, I misread it as "Accident Discoveries."

    Poor Ryker.
