Thats funny. A friend of mine actually bet me a case of beer that the Pirates would finish above 500 this year. That was the easiest bet I ever won.
Its a shame really what that organization has become. I'm 27 years old, and that team hasn't had a winning record since I was 9. The owners have it figured out though. The only reason people go to the games is because they give away free stuff. Its either a bobblehead, a fleece blanket, fireworks, or even free concerts after the game. At least we have the Steelers and Pens in Pittsburgh.
