OK, that was boring.....



Name: Val (duh)
Age: 49
Location: Easton, Maryland
Alma mater: University of Virginia
Favorite All-Time Pirate: Dave Parker. He's the reason I became a Pirates fan. I think the player I've most loved watching run the base paths was Juan Samuel, but man o man, watching Parker round third was an instant high. As a catcher, I lived for the play at the plate. But Parker? I'd just give home and think that I'd stand up Taveras next inning instead...
On the board since: That's easy. July 23, 2012, 10:27 am. That was two days after Drew Sutton's walk-off HR....
Favorite Pirate Moment: Reading in The Sporting News, maybe up to a week after it happened, that we had signed Bill Madlock. That team needed one more bat, and he was it.
Favorite Live Pirate Moment: Watching a young catcher named Jason Kendall steal two bases in one game in Philly. I was amazed to see a catcher do that. I mean, since when do catchers run on pitches, take aggressive leads off of first. This was our catcher. Did I mention that he was a catcher???
Did you know?: There's nothing special about me. I'm probably the lamest Buc fan on this board, but I've enjoyed catching up on the Bucs over the past year. Cheers.

Favorite Pirate Moment: McKenry's HR against Marmol in 2011, I've never seen a Pirate crowd go that nuts, for me this was when we started to turn the corner on the decades of awfulness.
Did you know?: I attended and applauded Homer Bailey's no hitter last year. Awesome to watch in person as a baseball fan.
