Man, I am still feeling it from last night. One of the best Pirate games in years, followed by a Penguin victory.

Good night to be a Burgh fan!

I have always been a Zach Duke fan, even when everybody else was jumping off the bandwagon. Zach is back!

Me too. It's hard not to like Zach. He seems like a really good guy off the field; he's always stood up and taken his lumps with the media, win or lose; and I don't think you can ever question his effort or intensity level. Great to see him doing well.

Nice kid too....

My 19 year old daughter has been "in love" with Duke since his Rookie year. She and I go to about a game every month, just the two of us, without her sisters or my wife...it is a great bonding time....but anyway back to my story.

A few years back, we saw him at one of the Winter Caravan stops, and my daughter took a picture with him. She was probably about 16ish at the time. We got it blown up to 10 x 13, and she had it on her wall. We went to opening day that year, and saw him. He was signing tons of autographs. He saw us and remembered her. He flagged her up to the front....and she had the blown up picture. He personalized it and signed it for her.

Even through all his struggles, he has remained her favorite Pirate, and she gets pissed now that everybody is back on the bandwagon.

Oh and she is disappointed he got married. LOL
