Oh Boy, It's a Boy, Boyee!

One of the best things about this season — besides all the winning! — has been the community of readers that participates in our comment sections (see the Top Commenters widget in our sidebar). So I was happy and flattered when reader Josh S. shared the good news with us:

Hey SoSG! Wifi is really spotty in this new room, but baby Lucas S. was born at 7:02 pm Pacific last night. Mom and baby are doing great. He already asked me why Torre didn't use Broxton on Tuesday.

Congrats, Josh and Mrs. Josh! We wish you a lifetime of references filled with these three:

Hear, hear!

Wow! A post? I'm genuinely touched! Thank you!

Turns out wifi was just spotty on the iPod. The laptop works fine.

So, here's a pic.

Again, thanks to everybody here for being so supportive, especially since you don't even really know me from a hole in the wall.

The look on young Lucas' face indicates his frustration with Forkal batting lead-off and his inability to get on base consistently.

Use the Force, Luke.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like he's already thinking about ditching the hospital and getting out to the All You Can Eat Pavilion as soon as he can.

The force is strong with this one.

So I was reading the comments on DT's game thread from yesterday and came across this:
"Little delias man was born this morning. Another dodger fan! Maybe his birthday is better for the dodgers then dad's was. 083079"

At least both newly arrived Dodger fans didn't want their fathers to miss the game.

Congrats Herr Shippe und Frau Shippe!

Congrats Josh! that's a beautiful baby with a beautiful name :)

My best wishes to Mrs. Josh and Lucas!

I'm trying to think of a clever interpretation of Lucas' expression, but I'm coming up blank.

So I'll just say congrats Josh S & missus!

Steve Sax said...

Congratulations Josh, Mrs Josh, and welcome Lucas!

Eric Stephen said...

Congrats, Josh. Here's to you brainwashing Lucas into becoming part of the next generation of Dodger fans!

Congrats Josh...and on the plus side, players are much more willing to sign autographs for little kids than adults so its a win-win situation!

Mr. Customer said...

Hey Josh, congrats on the big day!

Congrads Josh and Family!!!

To quote a greater man than I - may your first child be a masculine child. (Assuming Lucas is your first boy) And learn from my mistake with Little DeShields - leaving a diaper bag under a car at Dodgers Stadium means it's as good as gone.
