If I lived in Pitt, I'd definitely take that ticket off your hands.

It's golf night for me, otherwise I'd take you up on it.

Colin -
Unfortunately, I can't justify the plane ticket from O'Hare to Pittsburgh . . . and I'm not looking to burn my frequent flier miles right now.

That is probably a good thing for you because there might be situations where I would be advocating bunting in certain situations (other than the ninth inning), trying to hit behind runners on second base with less than 2 out, commenting on whether a particular AB was a "productive AB," whether Doumit was calling a good game, and batter's efforts with 2 strikes.

It would drive you crazy and make you wish you weren't at PNC. :)

In all seriousness, thanks for the offer and I wish that I could be there in person. It would be a blast.

If you (and this goes for anyone) are ever in the Chicago region and want to catch a Bucs/Cubs game, let me know. I'm always up for that. The Prince of Pittsburgh can attest (I hope) that I'm not a total gargoyle. He and I caught a game at Wrigley many, many moons ago. I've been fortunate to go to a game at PNC with ZM - which was a total blast and am looking forward to catching a game with AZ at some point in the not too distant future.

No. 9

I'm almost positive that IA was being facetious.

That would be one heck of a road trip to make tonight's game!

Thanks for the offer. Have you had any takers yet?

I'd have jumped on the chance, but just logged in here a little bit ago and live too far away to make the game in a reasonable time

I would have definitely gone with you if I could have, Colin. I can't take a day off work and I have no gas in my car. Ha! It would have been fun though.. the two plus hour drive. I haven't been to Pittsburgh in probably twenty years (at least since Bob Kipper was a Pirate.) I did see the Yankees once in Kansas City back in the mid seventies.

That is correct. You are one of the few lawyers who is not a total gargoyle. :lol: Seriously, though, I enjoyed my trip to Wrigley with you many years ago (2001, I believe) and would do it again in a heartbeat. Colin, I wish I could have taken you up on your ticket offer and likely would have if I still lived in the 'Burgh. For now, I will have to wait until March to get my Bucs vs. Yankees fix.
