Carson Wentz revealed the gender of his unborn child in a unique way this past week, as his wife Madison Oberg hucked powder-filled footballs into the air while Wentz and his buddies blasted away with shotguns in the most on-brand reveal of all time.
The happy couple will welcome a girl into the world who will only be able to be soothed asleep to the crack of a shotgun ringing through her ears, which in all honesty won’t be much of a problem considering how much of an outdoorsman Wentz seems to be.
Now, I could make all the obvious jokes about how Nick Foles would have done a better gender reveal, or would have shot the gun more accurately than Wentz, or actually has a Super Bowl ring to pass down to his children that was given to him for more than just standing around on the sidelines, but I won’t do that. It’s a momentous occasion for the Wentz family that doesn’t have to be cheapened by sub-par jokes about firing his shotgun high and outside, just like his swing passes.
It was a creative, unique gender reveal that suited the Wentz family well. They love to hunt, they love to shoot, they love football… it worked. So how could other Philadelphia athletes creatively reveal the genders of their future children? Be them planned, a happy surprise, or a haunting mistake like my mother has so constantly reminded me over the years, the reveals after the jump are perfectly crafted for the athletes in mind.
