All the long time posters here can easily remember, their was a boycott movement not so long ago to voice the fan hatred with our Pirates or more specifically Pirate cheap management. Let's all wear a shirt saying so and not go to the game or go and voice our anger.

I clearly remember people asking me when wearing a Pirate cap or T-shirt If I was really a Pirate fan. I often replied that yes I was one of two or three left in Wheeling. The years just mount up with losing as the constant companion. A friend of my re-kindled my interest by staying loyal while I had just kept it the backround. As I became more and more captured by The Bucs, I wanted others to voice some common support.

As change came in management and a few wins came, we started to see the draft choices except for Moscus start to look promising. As these guys made it to the big show, fans started to look at the Bucs again. But even in the past few years when we slumped in August and September, people would continually say 'they'll just fold the tent again' and my other favorite 'well they'll just sell off the decent guys again'.

Well, welcome back ye of little faith. record attendance last night of 40,400 and 2.2 million for the season. We have become the dominant talk of the whole region now, in fact, the darlings of baseball. Hope we continue this season but finally have fulfilled our dream of becoming a winner again.
