Hockey fan delays childbirth for game

CHICAGO - We may have found the biggest Chicago Blackhawks fan ever.

Donna Lebano, was watching Thursday's game, and apparently all that gut-wrenching action got her a little too excited.

During a game against the Minnesota Wild, Lebano got an unmistakable feeling during the second period--the eight months pregnant hawks fan went into labor.

But she wasn't leaving until the end of the game. After the Hawks eliminated the Minnesota Wild, Lebano went to the hospital, and delivered a baby boy.

Surprisingly, the baby was not named after a Blackhawks player.

The parents say they want their son to be the first own Michael on the Blackhawks.
