Each year Pittsburgh Pirates fans, bloggers, and international superstars get together for an event that is becoming a fun tradition. Excuse me, an undefeated tradition. The Gathering 3.0 was held yesterday before, and after, the disciplined Bucs were victors over the Miami Marlins.
A.J. Burnett was brilliant, just like the Gathering. Burnett is now 7-0 at PNC Park. The Gathering is 3-0.
As Clint Hurdle came out of the dugout to remove the Bucco right hander, fans started to rise to their feet. Most of the 39,411 — the fifth-largest crowd in park history–roared in appreciation for another strong performance from Pittsburgh’s adopted homeboy.
Here are some pictures from the festivities with the usual celebrities.
This is funny…soxdetox looks skyward wandering just what he has gotten himself into.
Most everyone believes that the next Gathering won’t be a year away, it just might be this Fall should the Pirates continue to pile up victories. We will see you there.
