Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was excused from practice this morning to be there for the birth of his twins. Head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that they were officially born at 11:15 this morning: 6 pounds, 8 ounces, and 6 pounds 1 ounce.
Together, they weigh slightly more than I did at birth.
Imagine if they had been born four minutes earlier–they would be the luckiest twins ever. I’m guessing that Hall spent his 11/11/11, 11:11 a.m. wish on their good health.
Congratulations to DeAngelo and his two new editions!
