Pittsburgh Sports Teams Fan Blog Pages.
Pittsburgh. Sports. Those words go together like Primanti and Brothers, Iron and City, Black and Gold. Gotta love it. When it comes to Pittsburgh sports, my bread and butter is the Pittsburgh Steelers… however, with the lockout still looming ominously above the city’s skyline and pre-season just a distant dream, I’ve had to turn my attention elsewhere to… The Buccos??
This came as no small surprise to me, believe me. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I “ love” the Pirates. Love them the same way I love the indigestion after a Capicola and Cheese from Primanti’s. Really. I love the Cap and Cheese as much as I love any sandwich, and the vicious acid reflux that accompanies my consumption of it just comes with the territory. Similarly, Pittsburgh is my prize jewel when it comes to cities, and the losing ways of the Bucco are simply par for the course. But not right now (knock on the biggest chunk of wood I can find).
As of today, the Buccos are 3 games above .500 (in July!) and have a real shot of winning the division (I think I need a bigger chunk of wood).
With fingers crossed, wood knocked, and palms closed tightly in prayer, all I can say is here we go Buccos, here we go!
