Couple names children after Green Bay Packers


LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin couple's love of the Green Bay Packers is a family affair.

Tony and Heather Eggen of Lake Hallie named each of their three children after a Packer player. There's 14-year-old Reggie, who was born when the Packers were making a run that would end with a Super Bowl victory. Tony Eggen's favorite player was Reggie White.

Then there's 11-year-old Brooke, named for one of the Eggens' favorite players, wide receiver Robert Brooks. And finally, there's 9-year-old Vince, a namesake of the legendary head coach, Vince Lombardi.

Heather Eggen says around school, the children are known as the Packer family. The Eggens even had a St. Bernard named Lambeau.
