    Pirates ditch Pirates logo

    aka "how to get people to buy more stuff with the letter 'P' on it"

    Please, god, let this mean that I never have to hear the words "raise the jolly roger" again.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Good, because that old logo was racist. Offensive to pirates everywhere.

    Not so fast, my religiously fruity friend.

    The Jolly Roger is actually the skull and crossed bones. The only thing they're changing is the ridiculous dude in a bandana.

    They'll still raise that flag after beating our guys 2-1 fifteen times next season.

    Re: Pirates ditch Pirates logo

    Makes sense. Why use a Pirate as your logo when you are the Pirates? I guess those red birds on the stick will be replaced by an arch or the Mississippi River.

    Bummer. I thought the Pirate was a cool logo.

    Well, this gets a forlorn yarrr from the Steve the Pirate.



    Got to believe the pirate will return some day. In the meantime I'm going to have a lot of fun mocking the Pirates' golden "P" logo. For instance, it's only fitting that a team that plays near the confluence of three rivers enjoys its water sports. Or, now Pittsburgh fans will have a use for all those old Terrible Towels.

    Along with the golden P, there is a rumor the men's rooms urinals will face the field with a half wall bringing new meaning to PNC Park.

    Pay attention to the open sky
