Yes WAY! The Pirates have won three in a row! And in a commanding fashion no less.

I’m speechless. Wait. I’m never actually speechless. Wait. I would be speechless if the Pirates win a World Series. Wait. I would be speechless if the Pirates broke .500.

So what the hell is going on with the Pirates? There is no middle ground with them. They are like the team in the first Major League movie. They are either sucking so bad their parents won’t even come watch them play (and when they do, they’re booing them along with the rest of us), or they’re smashing homers off of top-rated pitchers.

Two theories:

1. The Posse de Perez (scroll down) is a magically delicious lucky charm and these kids need to go to EVERY game, not just the Perez games. (See a photo on this kid’s MySpace page). I think the Pirates should be buying their tickets for them.

and 2. My personal belief is that, ala the movie, there is a life-size cardboard cutout of Sonni Abatta in the locker room, and every time they win a game, Jim Tracy peels a piece of her clothing off to eventually reveal for the first time ever, what everyone is searching the Internet for, Sonni Abatta nekkid.

And yes, I misspelled it on purpose so the bazillion boys out there that are Googling “Sonni Abatta (void of clothing)” will not get their hopes up that I have one of those on my blog. If I ever acquire a picture of Sonni sans clothing, I will probably get sixty million hits in three minutes and crash the entire Internet.

Boy, did this post veer off topic or what?

Go Pirates!

    you now know that since you are celebrating the Pirate victories they are going to start losing again… karma.

    I know. It is 3-2 right now in the bottom of the 8th, and we ain’t winning.

    Karma is a boomerang. I’m getting that on a shirt.

    I’m not familiar with Ms. Abatta’s work — I prefer the breathless intensity and shiny colors on Channel 11. But after having googled her, and finally having found a site that was not NSFW and pop-up free, I do recognize her now from her spread in Vainiac Magazine. So you have a thing for anchorwomen, do you?

    For my money, no one can hold a candle to the all-time standard bearer, Edie Tarbox. She’s so beautiful, she should go on a date with Mario Lemieux.
