I don't know what it is, but when all my friends decide to get preggers... it happens around the same time.   Im blaming bad weather and boring winters.  When there isnt enough snow to ride or its just too crappy to do anything outside, why not get down with some baby makin' action?  They, apparently, are past the "just for practice" stage.  But if your gonna pop out a kid why not get a bonus with it?

Bethesda Softworks (makers of Skyrim) promised free to anyone willing to name their baby born on the same day as Skyrim's release after one of the characters in the game.  On 11/11/11 (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim release date) Dovahkiin Tom Kellermyer was born to gamers Megan and Eric Kellermeyer. They named after the main character in the new game!  This couple now gets to enjoy all games released by Bethesda before, during, and after the birth of their son... for life!

I have not played Skyrim yet. I'm so behind in the video game world that my collection consists of Perfect Dark and Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64, and Jack & Daxter and the first Guitar Hero for PS2.  Now the plan is to break into my brother's house to steal Skyrim and his new Xbox... If I can get him to stop playing it that is...
