81!

An entire generation of people have never seen the Pirates have a winning season. Maybe, just maybe, we're about to see a baseball renaissance in Pittsburgh.

Oh, and fark Kevin McClatchy. I hope he knows how reviled he is by Pirates fans. He promised the world and delivered jack shiat. Nutting did everything McClatchy promised to do and didn't. Tonight we are finally free of his legacy of failure.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Orgasmatron138: Mid_mo_mad_man: Gunny Highway: GoldSpider: falcon176: and all the sudden every Steelers fan you know is suddenly a Pirates fan

Yeah, and they were proud fans of their Buccos the whole time too!

People seem to confuse "bandwagon fans" with "people who arent willing to spend excessive amounts of time money on a shiatty product but still root for a team and when the team starts to get good they pay more attention."

Happens all the time.

Actually what you just described is a bandwagon fan. I wear a dog eared Royals cap just so I can say I've followed them for years. I really want a new cap but I don't want to look like a new fan. So I wear an old cap

1. It's both sad and pathetic that you care that much about what other people think of your hat status.
2. Casual fans (i.e. bandwagon fans) give the team more money, which should give the team a better chance at acquiring better talent and winning more games.
3. What's the end game for you?  So you can be sitting in a bar when the Royals win the WS, turn to the crowd of happy, cheering people and say "No, no, I was here first!  I was here first! Stop having fun!  That's my fun!"

If the Cubs ever win the WS in my life, I will make sure I'm in Wrigleyville when it happens.  I will immerse myself in the crowd, and when that moment comes, I don't care if the people around me just started rooting for them during the WS, I'm hugging every motherfarker there.

Maybe the hat comment wasn't the best way to explain my thoughts on bandwagon fans. I was thinking more of what Bosox fans call the pink hatters.


Then let's just say that I disagree with your thoughts on bandwagon fans.  Even the longest, diehard-ist, oldest, crankiest fan doesn't really amount to much compared to a casual fan who just started watching yesterday.  We're all just fans.  We didn't accomplish shiat.  The players on the field did.  We're just happy that they did it.

I've been a Cubs fan since 1987.  I have absolutely zero problem with people who don't know a thing about the team, but wear t shirts and buy tickets when the team is doing well.  Know why?  Because I was an Andre Dawson bandwagon jumper.  I just happened to stick with the team.  But that 26 years I've been a fan doesn't mean anything.  It's not anything I accomplished, so it's not anything for me to lord over others.

I hope every Cubs game sells out, I hope every t-shirt sells, I hope every facebook post and tweet has something to do with the Cubs.  Because that will mean my team is making a shiat ton of money, which will be reinvested in the ballpark, players, coaches, and management.

Jesus.  Buy a new hat.  How does having a new hate make you less of a fan?  It is a farking hat.


People like him aren't really fans, they are just in it for the social status

Just be sure to peel the hologram sticker off so you don't look like a jackass and you'll be fine.

bluorangefyre: I, for one, would like to see what would happen if all three Pittsburgh teams won championships within a year of each other.


I, for one, would like to see what would happen if all three Pittsburgh team planes crashed into the heart of the city.

Clearly it was the Astros and their awesomeness living in the same division that was keeping them down all this time.
