Inside the Pirates’ celebration

CHICAGO – It’s 1:08 eastern time. I smell like cheap champagne, Coors Light and I can’t wear this shirt again on the road trip.

 

I just witnessed grown men and some kids (Cole, Gerrit) sporting every sort of goggles imaginable – from Oakley skiing eyewear to something out of eighth-grade chemistry class – dousing themselves with perfectly drinkable alcohol.

 

Enjoy it, Pittsburgh. This is what you’ve been waiting 21 years for.

 

Justin Morneau had his Derek Jeter moment , the Nationals lost 20 minutes later, and as the media waited outside the lockerroom room the smell of spent champagne begin to permeate throughout the concourse.

 

Once the visiting clubhouse doors opened I took out my iPhone….

So you were in a coma over the last year. You woke Monday and were told this was a photo from inside the Pirates locker room and that the Steelers stink.

 

Mind.

 

Blown.

Yes Virginia, there are Pittsburgh Pirates playoff T-shirts, including this spirit-soaked one sported by Russell Martin.

This picture screams 10,000 words.

 

‘Nuff said

 

Goodnight everyone
