Introducing Brooklynn, The San Francisco Giants’ ‘World Championship Baby’
Awww, how adorable. Her name? Brooklynn Olivia Bird. Her date and time of birth? August 1st at 8:01 p.m., exactly nine months and seven minutes to longtime Giants fans Robert and Jennifer, after San Francisco won the World Series on November 1, 2010, meaning that theoretically, she was the quickest baby to be conceived after the Giants beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 to clinch the franchise’s first World Series championship since 1954, when the team was still based in New York. In being conceived so quickly afterward (7 minutes, eh? Quite the quick celebration, indeed) and born at that time, Brooklynn Olivia has been named “Comcast SportsNet 2010 Giants World Championship Baby”, beating out 929 babies in 10 states.
According to a report in The San Francisco Examiner, Brooklynn and her mommy and daddy will receive “a $2,010 gift certificate, a commemorative brick imprinted with her name at AT&T Park and a birth certificate signed by the Giants.” Pretty cool.
Brooklynn was born eleven days late, but the extra time it took her to be born had its rewards:
“We never win anything; now we have a baby and now she wins everything for us,” said the 30-year-old Bird.
Awesome. A big congratulations goes out to little Brooklynn and her proud parents. Good job on the quick conception and not wasting any time, you two.
