Things Could Always Be Worse!

This ones for you Bryan!

Can you tell I'm getting a little fired up for the Reds in 2012? Two consecutive béisbol posts!!! This one was just too good to pass up.

I was a little miffed when the Bengals were recently ranked as the worst sports franchise in America. They have been to 2 Super Bowls since 1980, won their division multiple times and have been in the playoffs 3 times in the past 6 years. How does that compare to the poor Pittsburgh Pirates?

The poor Pirates have had 19 consecutive losing seasons!!! That is a record for all 4 major sports leagues in America. Normally, I wouldn't pile it on. I don't hate the Pirates. They even tend to have the Reds number from time to time. However, this is just too damn unlucky not to post. The video is awesomely gruesome too!

The Pirates started off hot last year. They were the darlings of MLB for a couple months before fading away. This year, they pulled a pretty big trade getting AJ Burnett from the Yankees. Granted, he has severely dropped off in recent seasons, but he is a pretty big star and a surefire innings eater, right?

WRONG! Burnett will be out 2 to 3 months after his batting practice mishap. Damn designated hitter rule! I really do feel your pain Bryan.
