Bucs Win DESPITE a Couple of Jagoffs!


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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do Not Pass Go OR the Duck, Go Directly To Jail!

A 40-foot Rubber Ducky has come to Pittsburgh.  It is here until October 20th.  But it will take us months beyond that date to figure out why in theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee hell we all getting so goo-goo over this thing.   It doesn’t move like a Disney animatronic thingy.  It doesn’t have a hand-held remote control that you can use to make it dance, swat at Angry Birds or talk.  But we love it!

We love it to the point that Downtown Pittsburgh was PACKED with people, like the Super Bowl parade we won’t have this season, who wanted to catch a glimpse of the duck.  They even closed down a bridge and partied with DJs and chicken-on-a-stick for a Duck Welcoming Party!

We’re crazeeeeee for the rubber duck.  But nobody crazier than my man, who climbed the Clemente Bridge to get a better view of.. yeah.. a 40-foot duck that’s going to be able to be seen for the next 3 weeks!  Isn’t that like saying ya need to be in the front row for a fireworks show… that, by the way, happens IN THE SKY???

Do ya really need to climb a bridge in full daylight, with 2,221,104 cell phone cameras around, to get a good view of a 40-foot duck?

Not sure how many nights ya spent in jail from that stunt but, we’re pretty sure famed attorney Jimmy Ecker would get ya an outta jail free card, if you admit you were up there getting ready to jump because of the Steelers season.

Either way, for self preservation like someone who turns into a werewolf on a full moon, make sure you stay home if the Pirates win tonight’s playoff game…chain yourself to a porch post before the end of the game if ya have to.  Cuz we’d hate top see what 20 years of pent up baseball energy will make you do, Ya Jagoff.


Thanks again to Brandon Vantassell from Twitter for being our Honorary Jagoff catcher today.
