Dunmore mom goes into labor at Redskins game
BY ROBBIE WARD (STAFF WRITER)
December 22, 2012


Jason Farmer / Staff Photographer Frank Pons and Marisa Fediw with their 2½-week-old daughter, Talia Fediw, who was born shortly after a Washington Redskins game. At left is 9-year-old Marcel Fediw. The family later received gifts from the team.


Ten days before Dunmore resident Marisa Fediw's baby girl was due, she couldn't think of a reason not to accompany her husband and son to Maryland to see the Washington Redskins host the New York Giants.

They'd made a spontaneous decision to watch the Dec. 3 game in person. With cheap tickets found online and beautiful weather to travel, everything seemed perfect. That is, until Mrs. Fediw arrived at FedExField in Landover, Md.

"As soon as we got there, I started having contractions," Mrs. Fediw said. "I didn't think fate would do that to me."

Mrs. Fediw didn't want to ruin the football experience for her family, so she kept quiet about her surprise. Sitting by her husband, 9-year-old son and mom, who drove from New York, Mrs. Fediw watched quarterback Robert Griffin III and the rest of the Redskins squeeze past Eli Manning and the Giants by a single point to win 17-16.

Sitting through the game, contractions intensified. When the game ended, Mrs. Fediw shared the news.

"I told them we weren't going home," she said.

...

Mrs. Fediw and her husband, Frank Pons, had a name picked out - Talia Keira-Rayne Fediw. But the Redskins convinced Mrs. Fediw to change her mind.

First, a representative for the football team visited the family at the hospital. Then a red, yellow and white floral arrangement arrived. People with the team even arranged for Mrs. Fediw's son, Marcel, to have a football signed by the star rookie quarterback, commonly known as RG3. The family also received a football with the newborn's name on it.

Even though her husband is a New York Giants fan, Mrs. Fediw said the Redskins' overwhelming attention converted her into a Washington fan. She plans to change young Talia's middle name, replacing "Keira" with "Griffin" to connect her daughter with the Redskins' quarterback.

This is a young couple. We have time to work on the father/husband. Resistance is futile. Great story.
