Location: 120 miles west of Iowa City
Name: Matt
Age: 45
Location: Urbandale, Iowa
Alma Mater: The University of Iowa
On the board: 1999
Fun board facts: I have attended baseball games with 3 current board members and 1 former board member. Have personally met or talked on the phone with 4 other board members. I've attended Opening Day at PNC Park with a board member and have utilized the good will of another board member to help me ship a rather large Guinness harp from Phoenix to my house in Iowa for display in my home basement bar.
Favorite board moment: When VOR accused me of being a creepy internet stalker when I offered to line up Cubs/Pirates tickets at Wrigley for a fellow board member.
Favorite All Time Pirates: Willie Stargell and Andy Van Slyke
Favorite Pirates moments: (1) After attending a 1991 Cubs/Pirates game in Pittsburgh, I was driving ahead of the team bus and could see Andy Van Slyke standing at the front of the bus pointing at my "BUCFAN" Iowa license plate and giving me a thumbs up. (2) During a layover at the Pittsburgh airport from Chicago on the way to a golf outing in 2000, a mechanical issue with the plane opened the door for me to take a cab to TRS and watch 4.5 innings of a Pirates/Mets game before I had to cab back to the airport. Missed the opening pitch and the end of the game.
Non Pirate that I'd pay good money to watch: Yadier Molina
Did you know (baseball version): I am driving one of the cars in the final scene of Field of Dreams.
Did you know (non-baseball version): Big fan of Tag Heuer wrist watches. Collection currently stands at 8 and I'm constantly scouring sites such as eBay, RightTime and TagExchange for good prices.

This reads like roll call at an AA meeting or some other addicts group meeting...

Still here, but not involved as much as I once was.

Name: Michael
Age: 65 and counting
Squeeze: Tina: aged 47. (Just bragging!)
Location: The wonderful seaside resort of Brighton & Hove (UK). Lived in Pittsburgh between 2000 and 2006.
Board member since way back - dunno, '97 maybe.
Memories: Catching a ball the first game I ever attended at 3RS. Sitting next to DK as he ranted at various players etc. from his lofty perch (he was hockey correspondent in those days). Helping the Judge (let's hope he posts a "here") with his protest at PNC Park. Meeting various other board members at one time or another.
Hopes: That the Pirates finally make it worthwhile to stay up till 3am listening to the game on the computer.

Ah yes...another fun fact I forgot to mention is I am the cameraman in this crazy Doc Ellis interview at the Pirate Protest event. He says his hair fell out from doing acid. Rather than pay, go in, and walk out...I stayed at hi-tops and drank beer...

His daughter thanked us for the video in the comments as it is the last video of him prior to his death

I'm probably one of the "seasoned" members here.
Live in Masschusetts, near Cape Cod.
Have followed the Bucs since '59, after Harvey Haddix's "perfect" game.
Favorite memory: Sitting in the bleachers with my dad in game 7 of the 1960 World Series. Dad took a photo of me after the game in front of the scoreboard.
Favorite Buc: Past - Maz
Present - Cutch
Have been to games at Forbes Field, Three Rivers and PNC Park.
Have witnessed all three World Series wins, and hope to see a 4th in my lifetime!!!!

Favorite All Time Pirate: Randall Simon. Also Andy Van Slyke

Favorite Current Pirate: Walker and Burnett

On the Board: Not sure. But we weren't winning.

Favorite Pirates Moment: It was awful, but somehow I fell asleep during the 19 inning Braves debacle. I literally woke up as the play at the plate was happening. Imagine waking up after a 2 hour nap to that. It was surreal. Also, Maz's home run. But I only saw that on Youtube. Have to admit I have a soft spot for the Barajas walk off too.

Location: Rochester, NY

Why I'm a Pirates Fan: Growing up, my home town Buffalo Bisons were the Pirates AAA affiliate. Also, they weren't awful then.

Least Favorite Teams: Overall, Yankees, Divisional, Brewers

Oh yeah - I used to be a Mets fan growing up (through 1986 anyhow) and I had a baseball signed by Dwight Gooden.
I then found out about is drugs use and such and rubbed off the autograph.

And..I have a baseball glove signed by Catfish Hunter.
