1. Apparently we’re not shouting loud enough to let the Buccos of Suckitude know how much they suck, because again, they came THIS close to .500 ball and pfft. Nothing. Losers.
Let me say that louder:
Here’s a handy way to have your body do the shouting for you. The most recent shirt to come out of the WearPittsburgh factory is a design created in partnership with the man behind the quote, Chad Hermann of TWM.
Beautiful. I’m thinking I need to see lots of these badboys at the next Buccos game. I’m also thinking these could be the official uniform of the Yinz Team softball team. Here’s my personal favorite style of the shirt.
2. While we’re here talking about suck and the Buccos, why not give your eardrums a good thrashing by exposing them to this song called “Jason Bay” sung earnestly and do you have a sharp stick I can use to puncture my eardrums-ly by a fan. Lyrics are below.
He will hit the big home run today.
He’ll catch anything that comes his way,
The fans all cheer for Jason Bay.
3 men on,
Score is down, hope of a win is gone.
Bay hits one into the neighbors’ lawn,
the Pirates win, fans cheer ’til dawn.
He is number 1 and has fun each time he plays.
Pittsburgh’s favorite son, second none, is Jason Bay.
Crowds miss him when he is not in play.
They hope he’ll be back by the next day,
‘Cause they are fans of Jason Bay.
“Pittsburgh’s favorite son?” Even his own mother wouldn’t call him that.

3. And finally, here’s a way you can help the Buccos of Suckitude not suck so hard. Write in Gary Roberts as a Pirate for the MLB All Star Game!
Also, I’d like to hear that chick sing a song called Gary Roberts to the tune of The Star Spangled Banner.
“Oh, say can you see, through the blood in your eyes,
that Gary Roberts hit you? Now you clutch your face screaming …”
Make it happen.
