Those Byrd and Martin HR's in the 2nd inning were ... incredible. The game.

The Bucco fans chanting "Cuuuuueeeeetooooo" and Cueto dropping the ball.

Then Martin blisters one for a HR.

I was yelling and cheering and laughing at the same time.

This.

I found myself clapping like a seal, too.

A few years back when the Pirates took first place after June for the first time in like 20 years I compared it to Leo DiCaprio climbing the water tower in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?'.

Last night was like that x1000.

Pure jubilance.

I did not have the honor of being in PNC. 2200 miles and too much work in the way.

Animal and J_C were there.

Who else? Whoever they are, I can state for a fact that they have zero voice today.

We were there, and in addition to having zero voice the next morning, I had tears in my eyes all night.
