For a change, I will find delight in shutting off the game early. I expect to do so right after the first pitch of the third inning.
I've tried this turn-it-off stuff, in disgust, about 300 times over the last three seasons. Every time I turn it back on, the Pirates still suck.
I doubt the TV or the radio people will pay any attention, even if the entire stadium is cricket-chirpin' empty for twenty minutes. And since I will turn it off myself, I'd have no way of knowing how it went down myself.
So all you fans at the game--please document what you see and hear. Expect mad web traffic to the best collection of photos and anecdotes.
Big toast for Dock Ellis around five.
Then it's Bergmann and Gorzelanny at seven.
