Today’s blog is a Guest Blog post from Twitter follower, Tim Bundy, from Cleveland, who feels our Pittsburgh baseball pain!
It is already known that the Pirates are the feel good story of the 2013 baseball season. The previous 20 years of Pirates baseball have been full of futility to say the least and year number 21 a lot of HURDLES have been cleared such as the first winning record and playoff appearance since 1992. They were mentioned ad naseum though the past few weeks.
Back in 1995 I heard all of these things about the Cleveland Indians (yes I am from Cleveland-I know you hate me). But once the playoffs started it would get mentioned for about 2 minutes before each series started and then moved on the the present. Watching Game 3 of the NLDS the first 2 innings JAGOFFS on TV have made mention of “blah blah blah have happened since the last time the Pirates made the playoffs” I am like “OK YOU MADE YOUR POINT!!” JUST BECAUSE ESPN THINKS THE PIRATES ARE HAPPY JUST TO MAKE IT DOESN’T MEAN THE PIRATE FAITHFUL SHARE THAT SEDIMENT!!!
I guess making a quick mention of this fact DURING THE PRE-GAME SHOW because everyone loves a feel good story isn’t the worse thing in the world but would these JAGOFFS THAT THINK BREAKING THIS BAD STREAK IS BIGGER THAN THE PLAYOFFS GIVE IT A REST AND QUIT TRYING TO MAKE THAT STORY BIGGER THAN THE PLAYOFFS ITSELF??!!
In case you didn’t know you made your point about the streak being over already, YA JAGOFFS!!!!
Thanks again to Tim (@Duds14 on Twitter) for being our Honorary Jagoff Catcher today. We were thinking the same thing on Twitter last night while watching the Pirates game.

Well, these guys say it all!! Its like what your grandpap would say after letting out that fart he’d been holding, after Thanksgiving Dinner, until your girlfriend went home.
But the game didn’t come off perfectly. Twice in the same inning, Pittsburgh fans touched a ball in play. One guy MIGHT have caused a home run by trying to catch a ball…another guy, stuffed in a what looked to be a petting zoo pen along the first base side, touched a ball hit by the Reds after it was called fair. No play could be made by the Pirates.
If you didn’t see either play, please submit a note from your mother as to why you were absent, and then click the video below from SportsVine to see what happened.
Following those two “Fan Errors,” a funny tweet came accross:
“Folks, it’s postseason, can we bring our ‘A’ game?” (From SteelRenegade#7)
After watching that, I called Bob Nutting on his cell phone and said, “We don’t know how to behave. Please UN-sell all front row seats for the next series!”
And then, ya have a guy jump off a bridge…(video credit to @DaFranchize from Twitter)
Twenty years of pent up pressure….gone in one night!!!! Even the 40-foot Rubber Duck (@Ya Quackoff) was taunting people on Twitter.
“Boy if I only had a stronger flash on my camera phone to get pics of you insane @Pirates fans. Did they just let you all outta jail??”
Bottom line, none of these people get called out… cuz we won. Had there been a loss? Well, there wasn’t.
So thanks Pittsburgh Pirates and, everyone’s new adopted grandpa, Clint Hurdle! We love ya! Let’s Go Bucs for BucToberFest, Ya Jagoffs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
