Game 101: Umpires 1 Braves 3 Pirates 3

The Pirates and Braves played for 18 1/3 innings, and then the umpire got bored and decided the game was over. I’m pissed at Clint Hurdle for his stupid bunting shenanigans and refusing to use Joel Hanrahan in the 19th, but the game was literally ended because the home plate umpire decided he didn’t want to keep umpiring. Travesty.

Baseball should be embarassed. I’m embarrassed to be a fan of a sport that just let that happen.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
