Before we talk Pens (SQUEE!), let’s check in with the Suckitude. Yeah, I know I said I wasn’t talking about them, but this is getting ridic.
- Pedro went 0 for 2 last night in our 6-0 loss. He’s now batting .177. LOL.
- Ronny went 0 for 3 last night and is now batting .170. OMG.
- Andrew McCutchen left the team for undisclosed personal reasons for an indeterminate amount of time. WTFBBQ?
But the good sports news for Pittsburgh is the Pens winning in double overtime last night.
The stress of that overtime was so great that I couldn’t bear to watch it full-size on my TV. Instead, I activated my channel guide which shrinks my currently viewed program down to a small box in the top right corner of the TV and that’s how I watched a good portion of OT. I figured if we lost in OT, it would be much less painful seeing it happen in a 12-inch box rather than on a giant 42-inch rectangle of pain and suffering.
Is that weird?
When Neal, or as I, and I assume many of you call him, Napoleon Dynamite, scored, I was first jubilant and then on rewind and re-watch in full size, I almost felt bad for this kid who had a front-row seat to Neal’s sweet goal and the ensuing celebration.
But look on the bright side, kid. You could be a Pirates fan.
That’s real pain.
