Really sweet win tonight.  We don't need to sweep this series, 2 out of 3 is fine.


I just wish we could play the Brewers and Reds as well as play the Cards.

Personally, I am postponing my celebration until we get to 82...because you know how this could go...21 consecutive seasons without a winning season.  But nonetheless, its hard to believe that I was 7 the last time I could say the Pirates didn't lose more games than they won.

Welp that does it, finally got to 82.  For a little perspective from Jerry Crasnick:

"To put all that suffering in perspective, it's instructive to reflect on the nonbaseball sporting developments that have taken place in the Steel City since the Pirates last posted a winning record:

• In 1992, first-year coach Bill Cowher led the Pittsburgh Steelers to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth. The Steelers have posted an aggregate record of 212-123 (for a winning percentage of .633), made the playoffs 14 times, won two Super Bowls and lost two others since the Pirates last broke the .500 barrier.

• Mario Lemieux, Kevin Stevens and Tom Barrasso led the Pittsburgh Penguins to their second straight Stanley Cup championship in 1992. Lemieux survived Hodgkin's lymphoma, entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1997 and was part of a group that bought the team two years later. The Penguins have posted winning records in 16 of the past 20 seasons, and won another Stanley Cup behind phenom Sidney Crosby in 2009.

• The Pitt Panthers have made 12 NCAA basketball tournament appearances since 1992. That includes five trips to the Sweet 16 and an Elite Eight appearance in 2009.

For those who prefer to mark their sports news through U.S. cultural signposts, "The Silence of the Lambs" was the big winner at the 1992 Academy Awards and Natalie Cole cleaned up at the Grammys. Some other 1992 news events: President George H.W. Bush took ill and vomited at a state dinner in Japan, Kurt Cobain married Courtney Love, Johnny Carson made his final "Tonight Show" appearance and gas cost $1.13 a gallon."

Let's fucking celebrate then!

Been a long time since the Pirates could take your mind off the Steelers, after all.

Huge win after that ending last night.  You've got to be happy with the way #1 and #2 have been performing of late or the 3rd and the 4th on the staff for that matter.  Will likely be heading out to the burgh for a playoff game assuming all goes to plan!
