I’ve got nothing for you tonight.
Stopped being a fan long ago. It takes one hell of a win or loss to move me in the slightest. But this goes back to childhood for so many Pittsburghers, including those born and bred like myself. You could brag to buddies that your team would never get no-hit, and you’d always be right. Even amid the 20 worst seasons any franchise in any sport had put together, this lived on.
This is sickening. Disgraceful. Lowest point for the franchise since 20-0.
It would be one thing if it’s one night. It isn’t. It’s two months. It’s 20 years. Shame on everyone who led the franchise of Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and Honus Wagner to this low.
I encourage your thoughts down below in the comments.

The stage is yours …
UPDATE 11:35 p.m.: Here’s the audio clip. The quote above is halfway in, so you get full context.
