I did think it would be much bigger in the media (I didn't see Sportscenter/Baseball Tonight last night to see if it was the lead story).

Maybe because it's just been such a foregone conclusion for a month now.

...and right now on foxsports.com the lead story is the dust up between Girardi and Showalter. Let's face it the Pirates breaking the streak should really capture the imagination of the sports world at large. Maybe not in Pittsburgh because we want more then just 82 but who can't get behind a franchise that has been down for 20 years. We are the ultimate underdog. I can't believe that Yanks-O's get more clicks than the Pirate Story but I guess I am wrong.


Let the national media whores get their attention.

The Pirates shouldn't be in this to win it for public acclaim; they should be in it for themselves (the city and the franchise).

Screw the media.

Actually, the national media is paying attention. The Pirates' 82nd win was a featured story on NBC Nightly News w/ Brian Williams on Tuesday.
