i also, weirdly, am not sure that a hypothetical pirates world series would beat that night. but i'm sure we don't have to worry about that

it was an incredible night. being there is my easy #1 sports memory ever, far exceeding any of the steelers or penguins championships. hard to explain

This video from the left field line after the big Russell Martin homer in the second inning. Damn this rules. Sad that a wild card game is the peak of Pirates fandom for the last 40 years but still, what a moment

Got into a mood thinking about the 2013-2015 Pirates tonight. Damn that was fun. You gotta watch this video (timestamped here) of McCutchen getting introduced before the wild card game. Imagine if ownership cared

yeah it is. teams favored by 3.5 win about 2/3 of the time. that's plenty significant. but it's also not anything close to a done deal, if you believe betting markets (i don't think they're a great barometer of elections)

The World Series ends with Glasnow throwing a complete game shutout and winning 1-0 on a walk-off solo homer by Austin Meadows, because Pirates fans had a little fun in the middle of the 2010s and need to be punished

no. why would i think that? the leader of his party has openly mused throughout the pandemic about withholding medical supplies from states with governors he doesn't like. his people have been very open about this. there's no reason whatsoever to assume good faith

Let’s play a game called “what happens to people in Missouri if people in blue states stop paying taxes?” and once Josh Hawley answers, we can reassess whether the federal government should pick winners and losers based on whether the governor is a Democrat or a Republican

Josh Hawley went to school in Palo Alto and New Haven. He is absolutely fine with “blue states” and only does this because he believes the people he’ll need to vote for him in the 2024 primary are the world’s easiest marks

means you'd have to bet $170 to win $100. it means you're a significant favorite but not considered close to a sure thing, in typical sports parlance

Biden is -170 in betting markets to win. That's the same odds as Oklahoma State beating Iowa State this weekend to remain undefeated. I'm glad I looked at this and now feel tremendous
