Tom Gorzelanny says EFF YOU, PITTSBURGH!

My nephew is six, is funny, is adorable, is blond, is smart and has a habit of pointing with his middle finger.  He does it when he shows me his homework and says, “Look how I can write!”  He does it when we’re at the park and he says, “Hey, look at that bird!”  And he does it when he says, “Why is Aunt PittGirl over there kicking that bird, Mommy?”

And I have never looked at him and said, “Oh, yeah, kid?! Well, EFF YOU, TOO!”

This is because I am an intelligent person that can discern between when someone is truly giving me the finger and when someone is USING their middle finger.

Other people?  Not so much.

They think Tom Gorzelanny The Bobblehead is flipping us all off.

Instead of possibly, just maybe, using his middle finger (looks like the index finger to me) to anchor his mitt to his catching hand.

Also?  Tom Gorzelanny The Bobblehead looks like he really needs to go pee.

    Remember, all publicity…. the Pirates have people talking about them and it is not related to their suckitude. Good news for the Pirates tonight — rain out. Woo-hoo! We didn’t lose.

    And I thought my child was over using the middle finger. She too is a middle finger pointer/reader/writer. Hey – maybe your nephew and my daughter can pitch for the Pirates. Couldn’t be much worse now, could it?

    This is greatest Pirates promotion I’ve seen all time, all my life. I think if more accidental vulgarity was used secretly at games and for Pirates promotions, I’d go more often. If they had a “Find the Fuck” day at PNC, with the winner getting something like the Stargell statue, I’d buy season tickets. And when I won, I’d dump Pops in the river.

    When you’re a hot young Latin American prospect, and you wind up getting your release from the freaking Pittsburgh Pirates, you must have screwed up pretty badly

    You know things are bad when your prospect players are swinging bats at each other
