    Default cheap joke at Buccos' expense



    PITTSBURGH—Inspired by the Tampa Bay Rays' idea to give away 20,000 free tickets, the Pittsburgh Pirates have devised their own promotion in hopes of generating higher attendance numbers, promising roster spots for the first 100 fans through the gates. Because rosters expand to 40 spots in September, that means that nearly half of the people who actually show up to the Pirates next game will be eligible to play for the team right away.

    The remaining 60 fans will be given spots on the Pirates’ minor league teams and have the opportunity to make the Major League squad next season. “We think this a great way to generate fan interest,” explained Pirates President Frank Coonelly. “Before, people had no desire to watch crappy Pirates players. But now, those people can be crappy Pirates players. With over 2-million people in the greater Pittsburgh area, surely 100 would be willing to come out for a chance like that.”

    That's pretty funny. I wish I would have thought of it.

    Look, we can't be thin skinned when the team has performed so pitifully for so long.

    I remember making jokes about KC, saying they were the "Yankees farm team," etc. and even the Mets in their early years.

    Yea, I thought it was funny as well... Like I was telling Kip, I just wasn't sure how it would be received on here...

    Well, I am sure.

    We certainly do a lot of self-generated laughing at the Bucs expense.
