As the city of Houston readied itself for the the big game, a Houston judge ordered DNA testing to determine whether President Bush's brother Neil fathered a child with Maria Andrews while he was married.
Neil's ex-wife, Sharon, requested the tests to defend herself against a defamation lawsuit filed by Maria's ex-husband, Robert.
Sharon testified during the couple's ugly divorce that she heard rumors that her husband had an affair with Maria and suddenly that name, will never be the same to her.
The hunch, dare we say, hope, is that Neil is the the father of Maria's 3-year-old son. Maria, who worked for Barbara Bush, is now engaged to Neil.
Robert, meanwhile, filed suit against Sharon in September, saying he is the boy's father.
