Given how amazing the 2013 season has been, I thought I'd start a "Thank You" thread so that we can appreciate and recognize what we've enjoyed during this magical journey. And yes, I purposely started this thread before we know what happens in tonight's Wild Card game against the Reds.

I'd like to start by thanking all of the members of this board for being the best digital baseball fan friends anyone could ask for. Yes, even you, sisyphus. I've learned a lot and I've really had fun talkin' ball with yinz guys.

Now...

Let's Go Bucs!

Absolutely. THANK YOU ALL. This board has increased my enjoyment of my beloved Buccos win or lose for the past several years.
...And to quote comrade Geno:

"Time play baseball"

I echo the thank yous to the board. It's been a treat participating in and reading the board.

I also want to thank Bob Nutting, Neal Huntington, Clint Hurdle, and the rest of the management team that got the Pirates here from the depths of the DL era.

Now go win this goddamn game, Pirates. I'm not ready for this season to end yet.

I'd like to thank Satan for holding up his end of the bargain so far.

...

Ok, but seriously?

Thanks to everyone, all races, creeds, demoninations, allegiances, lunch hours and TV watching habits. The Buccos are playing in a playoff game... albeit a one-game do or die one, but dang it---the playoffs are at PNC and life is good!

:lol:

I would like to add my thanks as well. There is no finer sports board on the interwebs. I have been a part of many incarnations of this board since 1997 and have had the great pleasure of meeting many of you. I don't post as often as some people, largely due to this site being blocked on my work computer, but I read virtually everything and want to thank everyone for the great analysis, opinions and humor. We have waited many years for today, so let's all enjoy it. We have most certainly earned it. GO BUCS!

Thank you too JC. I've enjoyed this board all of the years I've been a member and have learned much about the game!

I don't "put up with them" ... I consider them a privilege. The first hand Marauders/Pirate City/GCL content you provide is unique to anywhere on the internet and I'm glad we have you. Keep up the god work.

And thanks to Marlon Byrd. Gotta love a guy who has 1250 some at bats and hits a HR in his first ever playoff game.

Have I mentioned how much I am loving the Marlon Byrd era? ;)

Thank you to Pirates fans.

20 years ... I go to Anaheim with my son, Az, Mrs. Az., Corsair, Mrs. Corsair.

See Bucco jerseys galore at the hotel.

Pirate fans in the Target store.

Thousands of us in Angels Stadium.

20 years ... 2200 miles from Pittsburgh ... and there we were.

Amazing. Seriously, how many teams can generate this passion after so many horrible years???

Bucco fans tonight ... I cannot describe what it felt like, how much I wanted to be there, how much I loved those guys at PNC.

Oh, and how many red shirts did we see??

Hahahahahahahaahaha ... oh, jeez, I am cracking myself up.
