Whooooooooooooaaaaahhhhhhhh, we're halway there......

Pittsburgh Pirates Livin on a Prayer


The Pittsburgh Pirates finished June with a 16-11 record. A 6-3 record against the AL East. Keep praying.

Once upon a time, not so long ago.

The Pittsburgh  Pirates sucked.

Now look at this team.  The Pirates just finished June with more wins (16) than they have had since August of 2007.

The Pirates won four series against the boys from the big leagues during Interleague play.

Until this year it had been 15 years since the Pirates had a winning record against AL teams.  15 years!

The Pirates will, at the very least be .500, at the halfway point of the season with game 81 today in the nation’s capital.  It’s remarkable.

This is the part of the post where we get stupid.  Don’t take anything personal, just having some fun.

Give this song a listen from Jon Bon back in the 80′s…

 

We’re two back and we got a shot
It makes a statement if we make the Central hot.

We’ve got no power, we don’t score a lot.
But for God Sakes we’ve got a shot.

Whooah, we’re halfway there,
Livin on a prayer.

Neal’s putting his radar gun in hock.
Now he’s holding in when he used
to talk so tough, so tough.

Pirates fans dream of a parade
Fireworks light up the night
Cutch whispers, its okay we’ll win

Today, today….

We’ve got to hold on to what we got
It doesn’t make a difference if we homer or not
We’ve got Cutch and that’s a lot.

Whooah, we’re halfway there,
Livin on a prayer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We even have a version for the Pirates haters.  Here you go.  Sale the team!

Bob says we got to hold on to the cash we got.
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not.

We’ve got each other and that’s a lot.
For God Sakes we’ve got no shot.

Whooah, we’re halfway there,
Livin on a prayer.

Bob’s got his ski resort in hock.
Now he’s holding in when he used
to talk so tough, so tough.

Pirates fans dream of running away
When we cry in the night
Nutting whispers, its okay, someday

We’ve got to hold on to what we got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot.

Whooah, we’re halfway there,
Livin on a prayer.

We wrote those awful lyrics last night as the Pirates rolled out a very interesting lineup.  Five players who were not near the Pittsburgh Pirates opening day lineup.  One or two?  Sure.  But FIVE?  Unreal….  Damn, it’s just crazy watching this team.  This lineup.  This pitching.

The 2011 Opening Day Pittsburgh Pirates lineup looked a lot different than the current lineup. Pray Hard
