    I ask because Wilma McNabb just released this song she wrote for Donovan (video at the link). As you can probably guess, the reader comments are pure gold.


    I will be there to cheer you on ...
    you are my son, my champion

    [Refrain] He gives me strength when I am weak
    He shows me who I want to be
    He's my light when I can't see
    He gives me reasons to believe
    When the cheers ... fade away,
    I'll be there at the end of the day
    You know that love is real,
    when your heart is on the field [end refrain]

    From his first game to stadium lights
    From fall to inspiring winter nights
    I'll be watching, feeling so proud
    Whether he wins or loses with his home crowd
    It's hard to watch but I won't turn away
    Because I'm his biggest fan every night and every day
    I'm his biggest fan when your heart is on the field ...
    I'm right there watching you, watching you
    Wearing his jersey, making him signs
    Seeing all his hard work, knowing it's his time
    Realizing others feel the same way
    They worry too
    Wanting everyone's son to do his best
    They all amaze you
    Seeing all the lives he's touched in the excitement in children's eyes
    Always telling him reach for the stars
    He's already touched the sky
    Emotions fill the air
    Ohh Ohh ooo ...Something's come over me
    Like the end of the game
    When the clock ticks away with speed
    He's the one they trust
    The game in his hands
    He leads his team and everything goes to plan
    The final score doesn't matter
    I've already won
    I've been a champion because he's my son

    [Repeat refrain]

    ... the field, the field, when your heart is on the field

    [Above line repeats several times]

    I will be there to cheer you on
    You are my son, my Champion
    When you're heart is on the field

    It could be Delonte West depending whose mama you're talking about.

    Ya, that'll help McNabb's rep.

    Brings back memories of the Iverson story in SI where his momma claimed that AI was conceived without penetration. His daddy just rubbed against her.
