where the classics never go out of style

OK, this is on me. A few days ago I wrote a piece about superstitions in baseball and talked about the Pittsburgh Pirates having their first winning season in 20 years. My mistake was that I wrote that article after the Pirates had won their 81st game. The 81st win, however, only assures them of a .500 season, not a winning season!  Since I made that premature comment, the Pirates have not won a game. This, quite obviously, is my fault. Therefore, I apologize to all my fellow Pirate fans and now that I’ve admitted my wrongdoing, I can only hope that the Pirates will get back on the winning track.

Let’s go Bucs!
