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.
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?
