Or at least that’s what I think a launch sounds like.

Yes, a launch.

Recently, I was contacted by Mike or Woy or Wojo or Whatshisface and asked to write a letter to Mark Cuban on behalf of the city of Pittsburgh, asking him to pretty pretty please with a cherry, lots of sprinkles, and a handful of frenchfries on top, buy the Pirates.

So I wrote the letter for Mike and his blogging buddies and you all can now visit the recently launched Dear Mark Cuban website.

You’ll recognize some of the language from previous posts of mine, but I hope we captured the feelings of those Burghers that are fed up with current ownership and are ready for a change.

Go visit.  Leave a comment for Mark.  Tell him PittGirl sent you.  Flash your boobs.  Do what you must to convince the man, would ya?

    I am so angry, I can barely see the keyboard to write this. This is so like Woycheck to do this to me! Please, Pittgirl, write to Cuban and tell him it was all a misunderstanding. Tell him that you retract your letter, that you accidentally wrote to the wrong Cuban –tell him you were supposed to write to Raul Castro or Desi Arnaz.

    What Mike conveniently overlooks is that if we lose the Nutting/McClatchy cabal, there goes half of the stories on my blog!

    Welcome back.

    Welcome back PG! Thanks for participating in our little appeal, with apologies to the Judge. As much as I love keeping him fed with new material, the future of the franchise is at stake!

    OK, Woy, you’re right. We’ll have to target the new Penguin owners.
