Sorry for non-baseball fans, but this is my time. Been waiting over two decades to feel this rush, so I’m going to celebrate it. What I love about this shot is the linkage between two winning generations in the person of the two preeminent stars of each. Andrew McCutchen, most likely this year’s MVP, enters the pirate clubhouse beneath the giant banner with Roberto Clemente’s inspiring quote. I had the great privilege of watching Roberto in the flesh, one of the greatest athletes of all time. It’s one of the main things that sunk the hooks so deep in me. In the same way Mr. McCutchen is now doing the same with my son. Generations. Love it.
Pirates take on the Cards today at 2pm in the best of five National League Divisional Series. We’re significant underdogs. We’re going to win.
