A laughing stock no more: A few years ago when the Pirates set the record for most losing seasons in a row among the 4 "major" sports I took the opportunity to rant on this page. Last year when the streak hit 20 I did again. After 20 years of memories of Sid Bream beating Bonds throw from left I would like to thank the Pirates for giving me something to cheer about again. The Pirates finished the year 94-68. I number no one would have guessed at the start of the season. Players from the minors moved up and made an impact(Cole last night among others). The team made moved at the deadline to add offense not dump salary. They were run like a real franchise this year. Most importantly they made a city care again. PNC Park packed and rocking is amazing. After 20 years of frustration we finally have a winner. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and we wont have to wait another 20. This team has a solid young core and some real good pitching. As long as ownership doesnt trade it all away Pirate baseball is back!
Next year the streak will be old enough to buy a drink.: EPIC FAIL. The Pirates just finished up their 20th losing season in a row after being 16 games over .500 earlier in the year. I first posted this 3 years ago when they set the record and will every year until the streak ends. The franchise is a JOKE not just in Pittsburgh but around the league, Ownership is a JOKE, The plan to turn this team into "Baseballs Hells Angels" is a JOKE. After 20 years of sucking, there is no end in sight. O by the way, the team made $20 million this year and had a top 3 attendance in history. SO Much RAGE
Get your pencils out..: On average, 30-40 fans are kicked out of every NFL game. Starting this year, any fan kicked out of a game will be banned from the stadium until they pay for a 4 hour online course on anger mgt and pass a test. May be some empties in my section this year.
The Kid is back: Understand that it will take a little time. Sidney Crosby hadn't played in a game in nearly 11 months until Monday night, so it's inevitable that he'll need a little time to scrape the rust off his game. In his return, he shook that rust off with a 2 goal/ 4 pt night in 16 min of ice time.
If your favorite NFL team was candy, they would be......: Dont know if this IS FPP worthy, but it is Halloween so why not. Disclaimed: No one was hazed during the posting of this article.
