I'm going with birthright... In any event, my son Jackson Street was born on 7/25/15 (8.0 pounts, 20.5 inches).  He and Jen are doing great! 

And before you ask, yes, I'm binding that right arm (who'd've known that they actually have a thing for that, swaddling I think they call it...), and have taken him to his first baseball game (where he experienced his first team mascot photobombing...)! 
In the end, my dissolution with the game of baseball will not be a result of any loss of love for the game, rather from the realization that I can no longer bear the anger its supposed stewards cause to be built up in my soul. -Lee (01/08/2013)

Sorry, Mr. Trump says that birthright fandom isn't a thing anymore, so I'm afraid we're going to have to call him a bandwagoner for now. But congratulations on your little bandwagoner!

Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Congrats, Lee!  Seems like he's already bought into the lie that baseball is boring, though.    Gotta keep him awake during the game.

Very nice.

Once you have made him into a left-hander, nickname him LOOGY.  He may not appreciate it through his childhood, but later on he will realize it is golden.

Congrats! Now the question is does he have to be a Baylor fan too?
Always ready to go to a game.

Congrats Lee!
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit
