Question of the day

Wednesday, Jul 2, 2014

* My former intern Barton Lorimor proudly posted a Facebook photo today of his supremely cute baby daughter, Robin

* An all-in-fun flame war instantly ignited

* The Question: Is Baby Robin happy to be clothed in Cub garb, or is she wanting a different team’s jumper?

…Adding… Barton’s Twitter react…


Heh.

    She looks like she’s filling it.


  2. - lake county democrat - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:10 pm:

    Barton is great - if anyone can reverse the curse, he can, one good karma baby at a time. Congrats!


  3. - Wensicia - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    She looks pretty happy to me, so cute in Cubby blue!


  4. - anon - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    She needs a “Team CapFax” onesie

    “Losing, is a disease, as contagious as the bubonic plague…attacking one, but infecting all…but curable.

    Now Barton, rock Robin, gently rock her…now Barton, I want you to imagine you and Robin are on a ship at sea, gently rocking…on a vast sea…gently rocking…”

    Robin looks great. Period. She looks happy and comfortable…just prepare her…for gloom.

    (You mean that DOESN’T merit a call to DCFS?!?)
    Congratulations and best wishes for everyone


  7. - Responsa - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:18 pm:

    Her face is adorable but her expression definitely says she thinks she should not be forced to wear that Cubs attire. That is almost child abuse!


  8. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:19 pm:

    Notice that the red hair has made its debut.

    What a cute kid. Too bad she’s being punished this early in life.

    lol


  9. - Barton Lorimor - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:24 pm:

    You said it, Rich.

    Red hair IS punishment :)


  10. - phocion - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    Count me in on buying an advance copy of the CapFax tell all book.


  11. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    Being a Cubs fan, it builds character. Patience is a virtue.


  12. - siriusly - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:28 pm:

    I’d pay big money for that tell-all book!

    Baby Robin is very cute, I don’t think she minds the Cubs gear. She’s just happy to be almost as tall as her dad already.


  13. - A guy... - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:32 pm:

    Beautiful baby Barton. At this age, most outfits get “spit up on and puked on” several times a day. Understanding that, she’s appropriately clad.


  14. - Jose Abreu's next homer - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 1:49 pm:

    Just don’t name Ronnie Woo Woo as the godfather.


  15. - Ray del Camino - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:11 pm:

    This is how the misery is passed along to the next generation, before she even knows she has a choice. Cardinal red would look good with the hair.


  16. - Wumpus - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:16 pm:

    Congrats, she is pooping in it.


  17. - Draznnl - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:20 pm:

    Cute kid Barton. And a tremendous wardrobe choice.


  18. - walker - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:21 pm:

    Cubs and cute babies do go together.


  19. - A guy... - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:49 pm:

    Walk, do you mean Cubs and “cry babies” go together? lol.


  20. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 2:54 pm:

    It’s now a proven fact. The Cubs are bad for your health: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-100yearold-cubs-fan-dies-less-than-three-weeks-after-wrigley-field-visit-20140702,0,4391787.story

    Take that hideous jumper off the poor child!


  21. - Anyone Remember - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    Robin’s happy to be in Cubbie blue, as it contrasts better with the hair from “Uncle” Oscar than white or red does.


  22. - Six Degrees of Separation - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 3:47 pm:

    Not only does she look stunning in Cubbie blue, if she was inserted in the lineup the team’s on-base percentage might go up a smidge, a la Eddie Gaedel.


  23. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 3:53 pm:

    When my son came home one day singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame…root root root for the Cubbies, I screamed, noooooooo, not another generation…it’s just not fair. He’s now a Sox fan (though one that doesn’t hate the Cubs, just like I don’t hate the White Sox).


  24. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 3:53 pm:

    Oh, and yes, cute kid and sign me up for the tell all book!


  25. - Arthur Andersen - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    Baby thoughts: “why do old people smile at me and shake their heads when I wear this outfit?”


  26. - RNUG - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 4:13 pm:

    As a Cubs (and Red Sox) fan, I think baby Robin looks fine …


  27. - Norseman - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 4:25 pm:

    Precinct Captain beat me to the punch. Congratulations Barton.


  28. - Todd - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 4:27 pm:

    thats not a smile on her face. she needs somehting more fitting like a Sox outfit


  29. - david starrett - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    She breaks the curse!


  30. - Belle - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 5:59 pm:

    Congrats Lorimor Family—she’s adorable!
    Babies are pawns for the parent’s taste in clothing whether sports teams or outrageous colors.


  31. - Commander Norton - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 6:51 pm:

    Having had four myself, I consider myself an expert in detecting happiness in babies, and that little one is genuinely happy. No gassy smile there. Go Cubs.


  32. - x ace - Wednesday, Jul 2, 14 @ 8:33 pm:

    Clearly she is Happy “to be clothed in Cub garb ” and it is obvious she is Thinking ” Let’s Play Two “.


  33. - Upon Further Review - Thursday, Jul 3, 14 @ 1:06 am:

    The Cubs swept Boston at Fenway. I am crediting Robin.
