FINALLY! aka the Lost Post

This was drafted many moons ago to capture my true spirit, thrill, and elation of what seemed inevitable.  This post never happened:

It's a post 20 seasons in the making.  It's a post that unknowingly started in 1992 with a slide into home.  It's a post that a large part of me never thought I'd ever write.  It's a post that may seem stupid to some but cathartic to others.

It's a post that I take great joy in publishing on my little sports blog, allowing myself to be a fan for just a moment as my first love finally loves me back.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have 82 wins.

UPDATE: Okay, so they care a little.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen the NFL and NFLRA have struck a deal that will land the real referees we've grown to love (in the past three weeks) back on the sidelines by this weekend.

They Don't Care

As the pass fell from the sky a horde of men leaped into the air to claim the descending pigskin.  In what is usually the most anxiety inducing play in football, the Hail Mary dropped into the arms of Green Bay Packers defender M.D. Jennings.  Seahawks receiver Golden Tate wrestled with Jennings as the men fell to the ground.  Questions were in the air.  Then came the iconic photo.
