hurry faster.

There’s a little more than 24 hours left to enter the WoyGirl Arrival Date Pool — just enough time for me to announce a couple of curve balls, and one awesome addition to the loot.

Based on another Plurk conversation, we’ve decided to permit multiple entries on a single day. That means we would need tiebreakers, and we have that covered: If you’re competing with someone for the day you selected, I’ll email you on Wednesday and ask for your best guess as to WoyGirl’s 1) weight at birth, and 2) time of day she’ll be born.

The pool will still be winner-take-all — or rather, winner-take-half, with the other half going to the Woychecks to cover the cost of diapers for a day or two. And that brings us to the other cool announcement: In a post he put up tonight, Woy added a WearPittsburgh shirt of your choice to the pot. If you don’t know about Mike’s T-shirt business, now would be a good time to check it out — there’s some funny stuff at that site, and if you’re the winner, one of those shirts will be yours.

OK. I know. We’re changing the rules mid-stream. If anyone wants out, I’ll understand. But: Big Money. Diapers for WoyGirl. WearPittsburgh gear. C’mon. It’s not that bad.

Below is what the list looks like now, as of a little before midnight. If I told you to pick another day (Jim, Scott), I went back and plugged in your pick as per your original request. If you’ve already picked a day and you want to change to one that was already spoken for, feel free — my penance for changing the set-up will be keeping up with whatever changes yinz throw at me.

And if you’re here for the first time — hey, thanks for coming. Keep three things in mind: ante is $4, picks close at 11:59 p.m. (eastern time) Tuesday, and WoyGirl’s official due date is July 27. Thank you once again for your support.

  1. July 32 exists after 30 hours of labor and 2 epidurals – trust me – i’ve seen it. that was the day Jerry Garcia was born on, but through convention he switched it to August 1


  2. I am picking 7/20, mostly because I was a week early with my son. I woke up that morning and said, “Today I am having a baby.” I think I willed him out of there. And for Mrs. Woy: better a week early than a week late!!


  3. hmmm…not to make Mrs. Woy hate me, but statically she may deliver late…I’m going for 7/31…and in case I need to do time/weight, I’ll say 5:00pm EDT, and 7lbs 1oz.
