82 Wins: Congrats to the Pirates
If you're new to this blog, you probably didn't know that I (mostly) grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania, and therefore my first sports loyalties are with Pittsburgh teams. I have equal loyaties to St. Louis - except when Pittsburgh is in the running. So, my apologies to the Cardinals this year, as I defer to my Pittsburgh roots and pull for the Pirates.
In homage to the Pirates for their first winning season in 20 years, here is the cover of my old binder of baseball cards from the late 80s/early 90s. I took this to Three Rivers Stadium on many occasions with my family to get it autographed. I drew the logo. Signatures are Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Andy Van Slyke, Doug Drabek, Willie Stargell, Jeff King, Mike Lavalliere, and Lanny Frattare (radio announcer).
