News Quiz Q. Prediction of the Week: Sportos! – Why did Sarah Palin name her daughter Bristol?

Esquire interviewed Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and, in the course of it all, she explained the etymology of the name of her daughter, Bristol.

“But also, Bristol, Connecticut, is the home of ESPN. And when I was in high school, my desire was to be a sportscaster. ESPN was just kicking off, just getting off the ground, and I thought that’s what I was going to do in life, is be one of the first woman sportscasters. Until I learned that you’d have to move to Bristol, Connecticut. It was far away. So instead, I had a daughter and named her Bristol.”

  1. It’s a little more subtle than these people chose to be: http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/15168029/

  2. Nobody from CT goes to Bristol… it’s just common sense.
