Been talking with Bucs fans since the early 2000's on the Trib board and on the various incarnations since. Could not be happier. Not a season ticket holder but if we're lucky enough to host home playoff games I'll pay whatever the market may bear and be there.

It's been a long time coming, so I talked my wife into letting me get two strips for all 11 possible post season games. All I have to do is take her to Atlantic City next weekend to watch the Miss America Pageant. Sounds like win-win to me! lol

The Pirates knew just what they were doing. Just let the rest of baseball get over-confident, and then.....BOOM! To paraphrase my favorite composers, "they are the Pirate Kings...and it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King!" Go Bucs! :D

Oh better far to live and die under a brave black flag we fly . . . . and play a sanctimonious part with a Pirate head and a Pirate heart.

Cue up Kevin Kline . . .

A certain sportswriter is pointing out that it's not official until they hit 82 because of the very very very small probability that they have to play 163 games.

I know he's right but come on, sometimes you just need to shut the heck up.

Funny how he conveniently ignores the far more plausible scenario of a game being rained out and us only playing 161 games. Utterly shocking I tell you.

Finally - you guys do not know what it is like EVERY Spring Training to have the Pittsburgh fans come down and bitch about another losing season.
Like I had something to do with it. I see the fans/players for 1 month out of the year and all they do is bitch about this player and that player and I understand about it - but we get to hear it EVERY YEAR. They are serious about it too - yelling and cursing about it.

NOT 2014 BABY! No matter what happens, they can just back off!

Now that being said - LET's GO BUCCOS!

Being 24 and a die hard Buccos fan, this is freakin awesome! Heard something that Liriano skips tomorrow's start and pitches game one on Friday against cards, any truth?

Congratulations I guess. This whole thing kind of pisses me off really. I dont now and will never ever measure success with the 82nd win. NEVER! It always has been and always will be for me about being one of two teams left standing. It always has been and always will be about winning the Pennant. We will win that 82nd game and RAISE IT like we always do. Then we will win this division and RAISE IT a little higher. Then we will knock out the Braves and FLY IT sky high!!

Its at that point when I will get jacked about the Pirates. That's where the real streak will end. You see it's been 21 years since we were a ground ball out away from the Pennant. Its been 21 years since we were a 3' foul ball from being up 5 - 0 in game 7 of the NLCS. Its been 21 years since the Pirates were a real contender to win it all. Thats the streak that needs to end.

Somebody hoist the colors!
