It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

...Major League Baseball is still dead.

I posted the following almost exactly a year ago and absolutely nothing has changed. I haven't checked, but I'm sure all the websites represented below will have eerily similar stories posted soon, if they haven't done so by now.

I'll always love the Pirates, but it's more of a nostalgic thing for me. [Check out the Willie Stargell stamp available later this month from the USPS.] I wish them well, and if you're a fan, I wish you luck.

On dumbass baseball hypocrites and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"Oooooh, look at the Pirates! Aren't they cute? See, this proves there's nothing wrong with baseball because the low-budget Buccos are contending."

Wrong, kiddies. As soon as these Pirates are eligible for free agency, they will be snatched up by the same big money dumbasses who are praising the Pittsburgh franchise today.

And that's not the only thing wrong with Major League Baseball. For instance, it's been dead for at least thirty years.

In recent years, the Pittsburgh Pirates ’ status as cellar dwellers is about as American as baseball and apple pie.

 The Pittsburgh Pirates Just Had Their Best Half-Season Of Baseball In 19 Years
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Paul Maholm and his Pirates teammates aren't looking at the National League Central standings or checking the out-of-town scores. Too early in the season, the lefty starter said. Funny, because it's been a long time since Pittsburgh's been this good this late.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Bucs Finally Get Star Treatment They Deserve
(For complete Pirates coverage, see Piratesreport.com .) PITTSBURGH — The process took longer than it should have for a second-place team, but for the first time since the 1990 season, the Pirates will have as many as three players in the All-Star Game on Tuesday night. On Sunday, pitcher Kevin Correia joined pitcher Joel Hanrahan and outfielder Andrew McCutchen on the National League roster. He ...

Pittsburgh Pirates: What Andrew McCutchen's All-Star Selection Means to the CityWhen the rosters for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game were announced, Pittsburgh fans couldn't help but feel robbed. Sure, Joel Hanrahan got in. He's been one of the game's best closers this year with 26 saves and zero blown saves. His ERA is phenomenal, and his fastball reaches blistering speeds. If the Bucs have a lead going into the 9th inning, we all know it's "Hammer Time." However, when the team ...

Team success can spell marketing success

Funny thing started happening in the last several weeks. Google searches for terms such as "Pittsburgh Pirates tickets" and "Pirates schedule 2011" began spiking. "PNC Park hotels" searches were up 40 percent in June compared to the same time last year.

Pittsburgh Pirates: 5 and a Half Moves That Can Get Them into the Playoffs
The MLB trade deadline is July 31, and the Pirates could be buyers. While I think the Pirates have a shot at finishing atop the NL Central without making any moves, any of these five moves would help. I'm no general manager, but it's easy to see that the Pirates have some soft spots in their lineup. A solid bat at shortstop or first base could work wonders for the Pirates. Not only would the ...

Have the Pittsburgh Pirates Finally Seen the Light?
This has been an interesting season for the Pittsburgh Pirates . In fact, it has been an interesting season overall for the NL Central. The Pirates, one of the teams in the MLB considered a "lost cause" throughout the 1990's and 2000's, have emerged from a proverbial grave—at least at this point in the season—to put up favorable numbers and capitalize on the downfall of some of the other NL ...

About Me

My photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
