BUCN: The Story of the 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates


BUCN:  The official documentary of the Pirates’ 2012 season by Greg Allison, has dropped. Enjoy. I loved it. Every painful minute of it.

Part 1 of 3 looks at the start of the 2012 season includes some Spring Training and Opening Day highlights.

Part Two of the documentary looks at the start of the 2012 season including a trip to Cleveland, The Gathering–where all the lunatics were on hand for some fun before another big win.   I will never forget the discussions after The Gathering regarding a postseason Gathering.  Jinx.

The final chapter is the toughest.   The Braves fans moaning is nearly as rough as Greg reading the letter from Frank Coonelly regarding postseason tickets…ugh.
