A lot of pregnant women have been going into labor in Iceland. It just so happens to be nine months after Iceland's soccer team stunned England.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. It's my job to present facts, not to speculate. I'm not in the business of drawing connections that may not be there.

Maybe Iceland's soccer fans have a certain way of celebrating, but I'm not jumping to conclusions here. It's MORNING EDITION.
