    This couple watched last Saturday's game in the labor and delivery room.

    San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York is encouraging some very bro-friendly behavior that may set a dangerous precedent -- for Bay Area parents.

    York awarded two tickets to the best 49er fan Tweet this week. The winning tweet came from fan Vince Cava, who started a Twitter account solely for the contest -- that is, after he watched the 49ers' victory over the New Orleans Saints on Saturday from the hospital room where his wife was giving birth to the couple's first child.

    Cava's account of the game: "my first child was born during Sat's game, the dr let us watch the game during labor. It'd be awesome to go see the NFC champs." That was enough for York to award him four tickets plus pregame field passes.

    Wonder which Smith he'll name his son after?
