Pirates Fan Catches Foul Ball With Exploding Tub Of Popcorn

Here we have a Pittsburgh fan camping out underneath a foul ball off the bat of Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter, MacGyvering his tub of popcorn into a glove for an easier grab. I was really expecting (hoping) the ball to bust right through the bottom but it looks like it hits the side of the tub, which gave us… » 4/05/14 11:11am 4/05/14 11:11am

Shirtless Idiot Crashes Pirates' Pierogi Race

During the Great Pierogi Race between innings of last night's Cubs-Pirates game at PNC Park, one fan hopped the fence and took off in hot pursuit of those savory, anthropomorphic dumplings.

Glum Pittsburgh Pirates Fans Still Grateful For Not-Awful Season

The Pittsburgh Pirates got bounced Wednesday from their first postseason trip in approximately forever, losing to the St. Louis Cardinals by a score of who gives a flying crap to you knew they'd find a way to piss this one away.

Pittsburgh Babies Born Into Life Of Indentured Pirates Fandom

There is every possibility that this playoff appearance isn't a fluke, that a Pirates dynasty could be in the making. Perhaps one day you will resent these children with the vitriol reserved for Yankees, Heat, and United fans. Or perhaps, like a generation of Yinzers before them, they have emerged from the safety of… » 10/04/13 5:00pm 10/04/13 5:00pm

Some Jagoff Celebrated The Pirates' Win By Jumping Off A Bridge

The Pirates did a lot of shit in the last 21 years to make their fans want to take a flying leap and end it all. But that's all in the past. Tonight, the Buccos won the NL wild-card game, and this dumb Yinzer—not to be confused with this dumb Yinzer, or these dumb Yinzers—decided it was just the right occasion for a… » 10/02/13 1:28am 10/02/13 1:28am
