This is very off the topic, but our good friend Eric Wittenberg has started a new blog. You Stink! is a blog dedicated to Eric’s and Michael Aubrecht’s new book entitled You Stink! Major League Baseball’s Terrible Teams and Pathetic Players.
Those who know me well know that I am, sadly, a Pittsburgh Pirates fan. I have endured nearly two decades of terrible teams and losing seasons. It still hurts to see the picture of Atlanta Brave (former Pirate) Sid Bream slide across home plate on October 14, 1992 to defeat the Pirates 3-2 in the National League Championship Series. Bream, with no speed at all, beat out a poor throw from left fielder Barry Bonds. Too bad Bonds wasn’t on steroids yet– otherwise we would have seen extra innings, and perhaps a World Series.
This new blog and book is a must-read for any baseball or Pirates fan. Even if you are not a baseball fan, pass the word to those that are—they will not be disappointed.
