Playoff Recap: Fading to the distant past

WAUSAU, WI (EVERYTHING EVERGREENS-93.9FM THE GAME) The Pittsburgh Pirates were once a great team. They were World Series champions in 1960, winning on Bill Mazeroski’s walk-off home run against the Yankees. Roberto Clemente led the team to another title in 1971, as did Willie Stargell in 1979. The Pirates won back-to-back division titles in 1990 and 1991 before losing Barry Bonds to free agency. And all of that seems far, far in the past. The Pirates of today are a mere shadow of themselves. Their heros of the past are dead or have long since retired.

Simmons Says - jumping on Braves Bandwagon

Call me a bandwagon jumper. Shower me with all your fair-weather fan critiques. I don’t care – I’m really enjoying watching the Atlanta Braves right now. While I’m not as open about my Braves fandom as I am the Vols or San Antonio Spurs, some of my earliest sports memories are actually going to Atlanta to support the Braves. I remember being at Fulton County Stadium seeing Terry Pendleton hit a home run in the section right beside mine. My uncle, who lives in the Atlanta area, always reminds me that I said he was going to hit a HR right before the at-bat.
