Keaton and Optimism.

Nearing the end of the 8-3 loss to the Dodgers at the Pirates home opener this afternoon, this appeared on the Pirates front page. I'm calling shenanigans. While I'm certainly not calling the season as lost after eight games, and was unable to watch the game due to work today, it certainly seems like quite a bad outing from Duke in addition to the inability to put together a run when we need one. Or five. I'll be the first to admit that building for the future is a more pressing priority. There's just something about 1-7 that I'm not quite fond of.


Ironic that they included the bit with Michael Keaton (who threw out the first pitch) and the Batman/Rivers Cuomo picture after he made some less than sunshiney statements to the press.

I was reading in some tabloid type paper about dick cheney throwing out the first pitch at a Nationals game

he threw a 92 mph strike

just kidding, he sucked big time

then the article made some joke about him having better aim when he shot that hunter

it said the audience booed him

but it wasn't clear it it was for his politics or his horrible ERA in the previous games this season
