The Pirates' continuous sucking, their half-assed ownership, the empty promises, the steroids scandal, hearing about Barry and A-Rod all the time, and the having Yankees/Red Sox shoved down my throat every year just makes me sick of baseball. At least in the NFL you have surprise teams, stories, and parity every other year.
I'm surprised MLB hasn't moved one of them to the National league.Then we could watch them play in the World Series EVERY year.

Yeah I'm suprised of that to. Not to mention maybe moved 2 other MLB Teams over to the AL so we'd have to have interleague all season.

Have to start somewhere. Just hopefully they found the right manager for the time being at least.

LOL, now this is priceless. Business as usual for the Pirates ownership.........

Smizik: Walkout by Pirates fans gets blacked out: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07179/797796-194.stm

Quote:
They have asked their television announcing crew not to discuss the walkout with the media. They have removed all comments about the walkout from their message board at pirates.com. They have the support of their television rights holder, FSN Pittsburgh, which does not plan to show the protest as part of its game coverage.

i'll trade you my 3 pirates tickets for a stick of gum and a Kerry Wood trading card...

the sad thing is, i cant wait for my 1st PNC park experience and to see the reds win.


LETS.....Go......bucs.....

even sadder is for the same price, i wont be able to see flayed and plastisized human corpses displayed at the science center. i guess seeing a cadaver of a sports franchise will have to suffice. im sure i will see atleast 9 stiffs take the field though.
