    My wife and I are expecting our first child (a baby girl) sometime over the next few days. To celebrate I wanted to give away some beer! Since my daughter is being born in New Jersey and I hope to one day turn her into a craft beer drinker, I thought it would be fitting to give away some local beer. So far I will be giving away a bottle of Flying Fish FU Sandy and a bottle of Tuckahoe Brewing New Brighton Coffee Stout. I will be throwing another beer or two in and I may also try to hit one of the winner's wants as well. In order to participate you need to live in one of the lower 48 states.

    Our daughter is due on October 4th and there has been some discussion among my wife's doctors to induce labor if the baby isnt born by her due date. My wife has also suffered from Gestational Diabetes so the baby may weigh a little more than average. In order to participate just guess the date and time of our daughter's birth and if more than one person picks the same time the tie breaker will be the baby's birth weight. One guess per person and the winner will be the person that guesses the closest without going over.

    I sincerely congratulate you and your wife on the first baby. When I had my daughter, I also did a LIF and believe that it brought good beer karma to me since then...hope it does the same to you.

    Lies...Lies...Lies. It never gets better...only worse. First three months are hell...then they don't shut up...then you put them down on the ground and they are on the other side of the room within seconds....then comes walking...then chasing the pets, sticking shit in electrical sockets, hiding food in couch cushions...they out grow every outfit before you take the tags off, shoes are disposable after each month...then you have to potty train them...worst thing ever.

    ...but other than that, you will never love something more in your entire life. :)

    my little girl is an angel, she sleeps 10 hours a night, she smiles and coos all day and she would never fuck with my couch...wait...would she? I know one thing, this girl is gonna cost me a lot of money! I'm already saving for her car, not sure which one she will want but which ever one it is she can have it...on my way to the tattoo parlor to get "sucker" tattooed on my face!
