The Pirates are a secret passion of mine. Yes I am a Yankees fan but if I had to pick and NL team to cheer for this season they are the team. The Bucs have been a gritty team this year with a ton of extra inning wins. Last night they were at it again winning in 15 innings and once again raising the Jolly Roger. I can only imagine how fun that city has been this summer with those victories. I have a feeling the bars have been selling a lot of alcohol this summer pre and post wins.
In other news AROD hit his 25th homerun of the year and it was a grand slam to help the Yankees beat the Twins last night. It was his first grand slam since Sept. 20, 2013 and first grand slam since July 27th.
