Excited for the 2010 Season
Like most baseball fans, the offseason is pretty depressing. After being at Piratefest over the weekend, it seems like the final stretch is almost over. I have been trying to plan a trip down to Bradenton, FL for Pirates Spring training. Anyone else going? I’m hoping to have it all figured out by the end of the week.
Since I wasn’t able to get my picture taken with some of the Bucco’s at Piratefest, I decided to post some pics of me and the Pirates from the end of last season.

A few months ago, I decided to finally purchase season tickets. I have gone to about 40-50 games per season for the last 4 years. I finally decided to take a big leap for the team I love. Here is a picture of my seat for the 2010 season. Of course, on the day I went to check out my seat they were cleaning the stadium. Yes, that is a trash can on the field.
So, If your ever nearby at a game. Please come by and say hello. I love meeting new Pirate fans! =)
A total of 15, 398 Fans attended Piratefest over the weekend! Maybe, there is finally hope in this city? I belive there are only good things ahead.
Some other random notes:
- Yankees, Nick Swisher is making his acting debut on an episode of “How I met your mother” Tonight. Being an Ohioan myself, I can’t help but wish him the best of luck. His personality is always crazy and hilarious, so I am exicted to see watch him tonight.
- Former Pirates broadcaster, Lanny Frattare missed out on the Frick Award. Today, they annouced that Jon Miller is the winner of the 2010 Award.
