Loyette proclaims, “The winner is … JLR”

With the arrival of Loyette at 2:13 PM on December 31, 2007, I can now proclaim the winner of the first ever Irish Trojan Baby Pool to be…

me.

 

All of you people who scoffed at picking Loyette’s actual due date must feel pretty silly right now.

After the jump are the predictions, which show me to be the winner; the prediction was today at 11:59 PM, a difference of 9 hours and 46 minutes.  In second place was Mike’s brother Matt with a prediction of 12:11 AM tomorrow; he missed the actual mark of 2:13 PM by just under 10 hours.

 

So, congratulations to our winner, but bigger congratulations to Becky (& Brendan, I suppose) for the birth of their little girl.  From the Jewish contingent of the Loyosphere, I wish you a hearty Mazel Tov, and wish you all the best in the coming years.

And if I may editorialize briefly, that baby has got to be one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time (I’m actually writing this post later than the time stamp, so that Brendan’s announcement stays on top of this post).  But brown hair?  C’mon, Becky, you can’t let your kid have the same color hair as her daddy?  Seriously, though, she’s absolutely precious.

    Yes and while your blessing is appropriately directed to the Parents, Themselves, still This ould Goyishe loyishe macZeyde replies (for His part :) “a sheynem dank” and toasts You-&-Yours with a mighty “Sláinte!” for the Solstice & its attendant New Year.

    Congratulations is an understatement – I am happy for all of you, including the grandparents. As well – It alwaysdoes my accounting heart good to find someone who knows how to get a last minute tax deduction!
