7 Reasons why being a Pirates fan won't be so bad this year

#7 Suck has a shelf life. Let's hope our expired 10/1/2008.

#6 Bringing back the goofy "pillbox" hat. The other teams won't be laughing at us, they'll be laughing with us. OK, so, they really will be laughing at us.

#5 Since Xavier Nady was traded to the Yankees, we don't have to put up the annoying chick down the first base line who waved her pirate flag and crossed her arms into an "X" every time Nady was on the field.

#4 Won't have to remember how to spell Mientkiewicz.

#3 Still have that 6th Super Bowl "high".

#2 Pirates applied for Federal Disaster Assistance Program and were accepted. President Obama to tour area of devastation (PNC Park) by air this spring. Reportedly will call this "The worst disaster in our nation since the 1977 Tampa Bay Bucs".

#1 If by some miracle; and by miracle I mean a sure sign of the apocalypse; the Buccos make it to the World Series, our boy-Mayor won't have to change his name to "Piratestahl"

I haven't posted much lately. Why? Laziness, sickness, taxes and Twitter. If you don't know what Twitter is; Google "Stephen Fry BBC interview". That'll give you an idea. Recently, after feeling un-Twitterific for about 7 months, I've started Twittering again. It's a great way to share my worthless ramblings, 140 letters at a time. It allows me to vent, be a smart ass and share things without having to set aside a time to blog. Half the time, by evening, I forgot what I was going to blog about. Sometimes, I feel that I should expand on my "tweets". But for now, I'll split my musings between blogging and twittering; so please feel free to sign up for a Twitter account, if you haven't already, and follow along.
