Pirates lose 20-0

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

The Pittsburgh Baseball Club has played in these parts for 124 years, from coal miners to millionaires, from Honus Wagner to Roberto Clemente to Willie Stargell, from five World Series championships to 17 consecutive losing seasons.

And never, never was there a loss among the franchise's first 18,813 games to rival the one displayed on PNC Park's video scoreboard at 4:04 p.m. Thursday:

Milwaukee Brewers 20, Pirates 0.

Worst loss ever.

Here is how the Pirates' effort against the Brewers ranks in Major League Baseball's history, according to Stats LLC:

Most lopsided shutouts since 1900:

Date Result
Sept. 16, 1975 Pirates 22, Chicago Cubs 0
Aug. 31, 2004 Cleveland Indians 22, New York Yankees 0
Sept. 15, 1901 Detroit Tigers 21, Cleveland Blues 0
Aug. 13, 1939 New York Yankes 21, Philadelphia A's 0
April 22, 2010 Milwaukee Brewers 20, Pirates 0

Hey - It looks like they were good in 1975...

You Don't Know What You Got Til It's Gone

No truer words even spoken. But in honor of Earth Day, these words by Joni Mitchell also ring true:

Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples,
Leave me the birds and the bees - please

Great cover by The Counting Crows, featuring Vanessa Carleton.

My Favorite Metaphor

A lighthouse is not just a phallus. The Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City is the country's third tallest lighthouse with 228 steps. They are all worth if for the view from the top.

We go deep into the vault for this track from The Wild Swans off their 1989 release Space Flower

Maybe I'm Just Crazy

Here is a fun song by Girls - but the video is twice as fun. It sure looks like they're all having fun... Click on play if you have a Lust For Life. If you do, be careful; you might watch it again and again and again. Contains explicit content.

It Was Twenty-Five Years Ago...

...In April 1985, when a group of fine young men took a road trip from New Jersey to Fort Lauderdale, FLA for Spring Break.

This pic was taken during a stop in either North or South Carolina. Good time for a nice cold one.

Below is a mini soundtrack from that fateful trip so long ago. These three songs will always remind me of spending 22 hours each way in the Cougar, and remembering fondly of what was lost by some and found by others...

I Loved This Man In Uniform

Wilver Dornell "Willie" Stargell. Died this day April 9, 2001. Loved and feared by many. His batting stance was imitated by young wiffle ball players across the land...
