Pirates Plan "Italian Day"

Tomorrow at 1:35, your Pittsburgh Pirates host the Toronto Blue Jays at 1:35pm. The promotion of the day is:

"Italian Day - Join the Pirates for authentic cuisine, music and entertainment on the PNC Park Riverwalk."

Too bad there won't be any Italians around as they'll all BE WATCHING THE ITALY / SPAIN EURO 2008 QUARTERFINAL THAT KICKS OFF AT 2:45PM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeesh. Talk about an organization that just can't get it right.

At least some good pals of mine got to see free baseball last night, as the Bucos went 12 innings with the those silly Cito Gaston revived Blue Jays. They only got to see 1 run cross the dish, but they got free baseball.

Wait what? 1 run after 12 innings?!?!?!?! What kind of sport is that? How boring (insert smiley face here).

I overheard that the highlight of the game was Roy Halladay taking it in the face.
