A Steve Young Pregnancy Confusion

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Is Steve Young's wife Barbara pregnant?
That's what nurses at LDS Hosptial wondered when a doctor's answering
service called asking for a prescription for Barbara Young's morning
sickness. 49er quarterback Steve Young married Barbara Graham just
two weeks ago, and the idea that Barbara might be pregnant thrilled
But the nurses were mistaken. It wasn't the same Steve Young.
However, the similarities between the two men are striking. Both
played football in Utah, the second Young for the University of Utah
as a punter from 1991-92. Both men married women named Barbara with
last names starting with G (Salt Lake City's Young married Barbara
Gray). And both went to law school and have passed the bar (49er
Steve Young in California, the other Young in Utah).
But when walking down the street, Utah's Steve Young is frequently
mistaken for former BYU quarterback Ty Detmer, rather than his
namesake. Of course, some people go so far as to ask him if he is
Detmer, and Young is then forced to say, "No, I am Steve Young."
