Tailing the Komets

What do you want to talk about?

Let's leave the coach, owner, player bashing to a minimum. We've pretty much said all that can be said and it's obvious that debate can't be advanced yet.

So pick your topic.

I just had to post this. If you ever wanted a clear sign of how sports has changed in the last 20 years.
Remember Richie Hebner? For those that don't know, he was a pretty good Major League outfielder for about 15 years in the big leagues. I am pulling some 1985 donruss singles for a customer of mine and being a Pirates fan the card caught me eye. Reading the back it has a bio of his career accomplishments and other tidbits. The last line almost knocked me over "IS A GRAVEDIGGER IN THE OFFSEASON" Can you imagine someone playing in the majors today doing that?? Gheesh none of them even need second jobs while they are playing anymore. A GRAVEDIGGER!!!!!!

Actually the buildings make a ton more money from concerts than they do from hockey games.

There was a conflict in Fort Wayne last year for the finals, remember?

It may have screwed us a bit, too...or not? We did win game 2 there...came home and lost.

Tony, how does a guy living in Detroit end up a Pirate fan? Not that i'm complain because I'm one too. Have been since '78 and will always be one. Go Jason Bay.

Greg I am a Pirates and Blue Jays fan.
Pirates, first pack of cards I ever got was in 1978. As a kid yellow was my favorite color. Well, the first card I saw was a Ken Macha card. He was wearing the bright yellow jersey and the brighter yellow batting helmet. The rest as they say was history. As I grew older I found KDKA would come in at night so I listening to the games. When I turned 16, two days after getting my license I drove there to see the city. Coming through the tunnel and having the city appear out of nowhere is a sight everyone should see. Next to Toronto it is my favorite city to visit( I consider Fort Wayne a second home, not someplace I visit).

P.S. I still have that card hanging up in my office. With my inventory approaching 4 million I always make sure I knew where that card is.
