Throughout my high school years, fellow classmates of mine would jump on the Pittsburgh Band Wagon and “celebrate their team’s championship.” Mind you, these students have never lived a day inside of Pennsylvania and never will.
The same continued during my college years when the Steelers won another Super Bowl and the Pens won the cup. The difference this time around was that I attended college with many people from Pittsburgh, actually natives/fans.
Pittsburgh fans like to get in Clevelander’s face and brag about their championships, yelling & screaming about how much they love Pittsburgh sports. But there was one topic that was always hidden until a Cleveland fan wanted to shut them up….
Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball
These loud mouth fans would always say “I don’t like baseball, so I don’t care,” and then try to turn the tables on you by trying to find something against Cleveland to talk about.
Pittsburgh hasn’t been good for years, well, more like decades. This might be the year that October baseball is played in PNC.
I have a few questions for my readers:
- Do you think the Pittsburgh has treated the Pirates as a “Red headed step child” for years?
- Do you think the Pirates will win the NL Central?
- Do you think the Bucs will battle the Tribe in the 2012 World Series?
