Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
After Cole's no-hitter, will he walk across the Mississippi? Or fly up to the Beer Fort Hovercraft?
Good walk there by Walker.
Entertained by Jim Joyce shouting strikes Umpshow. And TBS announcers saying Cole is wearing Big Boy Pants.
Hoka Hey, Do or Die today!
I think if the PBC pulls this off, I'm going to dream like a hippie tonight.
Cards stealing PBC SHIFT play book.
Marte uses both hands on the fly ball.
See Meatball, hit Meatball over fence.Ouch.
Freese sneaks off into clubhouse to inject himself with more PEDs.
Time for a PBC injection of Ectoplasm.
Marte reverting to lazy single handed catch mode. Just kidding, helluva catch there.
Yeah, where was 2 hands?
Good place to drill Jay & set up the double play.
Was expecting a bunt from Byrd.
Secret Weapon: Barmes
Marte should have bunted.
Liriano makes that behind the back snag.
C'mon Petey. Tie it up, please.
a RUN? more please.
Pedro first player ever to have RBI in first 6 playoff games.
Pirates are pretty skilled at the infield hit.
Infield Grass Assault comes up short.
The French Rifle slips and falls off a Beer Fort rampart.
Matheny overconfident letting Waino bat in the 7th - comeback imminent.
Never seen so many LIDPs in one game.
That's play isn't working for us.
Hard to beat the Umps, the Cards, and all of their PEDs at once.
This TBS crew getting their facts wrong left and right. "Beltran pops up the first pitch" - Uh, no, that was the second. Open your eyes, jackasses.
And it was 7-1 according to the TBS guy....
Laughed at the 7-1 call. They had Holliday catching a ball Beltran caught and PBC groundout to Alvarez. Get out your notes about what the five-word banner said before you tell the story, you know, to avoid having to announce you are going to get out your notes. Good thing these announcers won't be calling the Bucs' NLCS games.
Ugly end here.
I believe that cutter was thrown absent the CUT.
Fucking Fat Fuck, Fuck.
Melancon trade value dropping.
Entertaining year at least by the PBC.Looking forward to a bigger badder better Beer Fort next year.
Good thing this is a seven-game series.
Entertained as well.
You guys were awesome all season. Team wasn't bad either. Who knew IGA would be revived? Who knew the fat guy from Slippery Rock would Bream himself into local history? Every line drive turned into Christmas morning for Cards infielders. Who knew we would get Descalsoed for the 23rd time in the past 73 games? I cannot tire enough of that stupid dugout profile camera shot of Hunting Knife and his Dr. Strange-like command of boredom. Bud, I implore you in your final year as Caligula--realign and put St. Louis in the AL West to join the red hot trendy Astros!! Rumor is beer fort for 2014 has been upgraded to 'Nam style Firebase with ectoplasm chemical elements launched from Iron Balls' broken bats....
Wow, hard to believe the Bucs came back and won this one in extra innings. What a magically delusional season. Beer Fort will be ready for World Series after our lengthy but well-earned bye. Another entertaining year here at HW - thanks to all who came and took the time to comment. And perhaps the most entertaining season and pennant clinching year of this post-2010 Dynasty. Can't wait for the parade and the World Champions DVD Box Set.
