Cleveland Radio Host Cherise Navidad to Name Son Dirk After Mavs Win
First thing’s first: Cherise Navidad? Is that a stage name? Navidad is the host of a Saturday night radio show on Cleveland’s Q104, and if I hadn’t taken four-plus years of Spanish before college I would probably think someone was wishing me a merry Christmas every time I heard her say, “you’re back with Cherise Navidad on Q104…”
Like so many other Clevelanders and fans all across America, Navidad was blown away by how arrogant LeBron James was in leaving Cleveland via “The Decision.” She took it one step further. Navidad was so desperate for someone to make sure LeBron didn’t win a title that she made a promise on Twitter to name her unborn son “Dirk” if the Mavericks were able to stop Miami. We all know how that turned out. More specifically, we all know how dominant Dirk was along the way.
According to the NY Daily News, Navidad is going to cash in on her promise. She said it was her job to name their first son which means it is her husbands turn this time around, but Dirk will be used as the child’s middle name if necessary.
“When you want someone to beat LeBron so badly, you will do anything,” Navidad explained. “(I’ll tell my son) exactly that this is how silly your mom is. This is what we did, and Twitter is a binding contract.”
With the way Nowitzki played in the postseason, I might legally switch my own name to Dirk.
