I got those tickets for MH as one of his Christmas gifts.  I purchased them in October, thinking, "I know Pgh. fans, those good tics will be gobbled up really quickly."  After 21 years of loosing........
So I got the tickets and 2 weeks later.........that entire section was sold out!!

Even though I have to sit at the Pirates dugout I'm just happy to be going to see the Giants win. And I'll be wearing Giants gear. And I'll have a hot dog.


I'd suggest a 'kolbassy' with mustard & slaw washed down with a few IC Lights.
 
(BTW: Even though I'm a native, I take my Primanti's with the fries on the side and enjoy them with Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Malt Vinegar).

No Federal Judge will step-in & interfere with this decision in such a way to allow A Rod a way to weasel his way back to the field at any time during the 2014 season...after his appeal & case went to arbitration... a ruling to suspend him & his lack of his own testimony in the case.

The Players Association has accepted the arbitration decision so A Rod is like an island. A player with no team...union or league in his corner...and a ruling against him that his high-powered lawyers couldn't fix or win in the first place.

That Judge would come under such scrutiny his/her own reputation and career would be on the line...and the bankroll of A Rod won't be footing any bills for any Judge foolish enough to view A Rod as a "victim' of the arbitration process....with an "emergency" situation to play baseball.

CCinNJ, "we shall see what we shall see".
 
Even though "Casa Rodriguez" is belching smoke, the flame of a failed drug test has yet to be seen.
 
Given the hubris of the Federal Judiciary, expect - at the very least - an injunction.
 
You think that no Judge would "risk his career" by offending a general sense of decency and fairness.
 
Au contraire, there are many Judges out there who would like the chance to set a precedent that would result in the eventual overturn of the Exemption from Anti-Trust Law that MLB enjoys.  
 
From their narcissistic perspective, such would 'make a career' and give them a line or two of immortality in future legal texts.
 
Believe me, you and I agree on the A-Rod matter.  But, again, "we shall see what we shall see" ...

Shunsuke is a veteran submarine-style pitcher that played many years for the Chiba Lotte Marines.

He'll be lots of fun to watch.



Shunsuke would also be a natural...in the game of Bocce.

Well...he's 37 years old & was signed to a minor league contract. He does hold the record for skipping stones in Japan(& his arm is made of rubber)...so there's always hope.

I saw his salary last year for the Marines & it was 80 million!!! But...that was Yen.


Many of the younger pitchers from the bullpen that did a great job last season will be reporting to spring training auditioning for starting positions.

There's no shortage of pitching for the Red Sox this year...but I'm rooting for Mr. Submarine to make the team or be called-up at some point in the season. It woud be fun. But I am saying this in January.

Had A-Roid continued his legal challenge I have no doubt that a Federal Judge would have granted him an injunction permitting him to report to Spring Training.
 
But, that would have been a Pyrrhic Victory for him as it would have opened an avenue to the Yankes to void the $100M remaining on his silly contract.
 
Thank goodness someone put some wisdom into that arrogant noggin:  "Alex, it just ain't smart to sh*t in your own nest".

Due to the way the decision was written (entire 2014 season & postseason) ...he was planning to report/participate (prance like a show pony) in Spring Training...as if nothing happened.

I don't think the Giants report until 2/14, but it's okay--it's getting close enough!

I get to see a Giants game in May. May 7, when they play the Pirates in PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Thank you again lleechef for the tickets. I hope my Giants gear won't cause too many problems while I'm sitting behind the Pirates dugout. Last time I got the tickets and we sat behind the Giants dugout, so I guess it's only fair that my Pirates-fan wife would want to sit with my enemies.

Heck, lleechef would kill me. I can't even wear New York Football Giants gear at home on a day when the Steelers play, even if the Steelers game isn't being shown here.
 
By the way, when we went to the last Pirates-Giants game at PNC Park the Pirates somehow managed to slip by the Giants, 11-2.

Your Giants gear will only evoke an outpouring of sympathy and condolences from the warm hearted Pirates fans.
Hopefully, someone will offer to buy you a beer to help you drown your sorrows!

Oh, sure. An Iron City or Rolling Rock. Just what I've always wanted. Do they still make Duquesne? There's another one.

Infortunately Duquesne ("The Prince of Pilsners") is defunct.  So are Silver Top Lager and Ft. Pitt ("Ft. Pitt, that's IT"!!).
 
Duquesne was my personal favorite, but at 18 what did I know?

Why not whip up some home-made Augustine's Pizza right now?
 
  1. Lightly toast one slice of WonderTM Bread.
  2. Spritz some PamTM on the underside.
  3. Apply a thin layer of HeinzTM Ketchup on top.
  4. Sprinkle a hint of oregano and garlic salt.
  5. Top with a few shakes of KraftTM Parmesian Cheese.
  6. 12 minutes on a cookie sheet @ 350.

 
Chances are at least 3 out of 5 that he'll like the real thing better!

Most cool. 
 
I'll check Total Wine & Spirits down here as they carry IC and IC Light.  If not, it's on my list for the next pilgrimage to the 'Burgh.
 
In the meantime, I wish the Bucs would trade for Mitch Moreland and sign A.J. Burnett!

AJ Burnertt sure did raise his stock by going to a small market.

I can't wait to see the Red Sox gaudy World Championship ring blings & ceremony.

Good to know! I read the history and it brought back memories of not only Duquesne Beer but other brands of the time as well.

If that's not a glowing promotion of Pittsburgh I don't know what is!
 
But shouldn't it have fries on top?
 
Mrs. Chicken and I would like to visit PNC Park someday, probably after KC (this April), St. Louis, and Cleveland.
