Speaking of contests … it has come to our attention that TehBaby Pool may be coming to a conclusion sooner rather than later. TheJim let us know today that his yet-to-be-born son is doing loop-de-loops and may be ready for a C-section as soon as this week.

Let me take this opportunity to update y’all on the entries, so we know where we all stand:

10-2: Norm (3 p.m., 9 lbs 5 oz); Sorg (4:20 a.m., 9 lbs 3 oz)

10-3 Michael Fulk

10-4 Locobone

10-5 Will (defending champion baby birthdate picker)

10-6 (The Other White) Jim Lokay

10-7 Woy (8:14 p.m., 8 lbs 3 oz); Yours Truly (3:45 a.m., 8 lbs 5 oz)

10-8 Father Spoon (2:21 p.m., 7 lbs 11 oz); Birthday girl Cindy (2:15 a.m., 8 lbs 12 oz)

10-9 The Wife

10-10 Burgh Baby’s Mom

10-12 Jennie (who thoughtfully selected my birthday as her pick)

Remember: The winner splits the pot with the Shiremans, who will need the dough to keep Jim medicated through the first few days of fatherhood. The winner also will receive not one but two t-shirts, a lovely Sportsocracy shirt courtesy of TehJim and the winner’s choice from the WearPittsburgh stable, thanks to Woy.

In the event that TehBaby shows up on a day no one has picked, I’m going to suggest that the Shiremans get all the dough. But that wasn’t in the fine print before; if you’d rather keep your $4 entry fee, just let me know in an email, and I’ll make sure that happens.

Thanks for playing, y’all … we may have a winner before we know it.


  1. I vote the Sherimans keep the dough if TehBaby decides to make an appearance at the wrong time. TehJim is going to need all the cash for alcohol he can get his hands on anyway.
