Pirate Home Opener Speech



So you're feeling good about yourselves.  You feel like you've excercised some demons.  Well hold your head up high, because you have.  The problem with demons though, is they will fight tooth and nail to climb back into your heads.

Right now there are fans all across the Bucco Nation checking box scores, looking at standings and predicting future wins.  You've done this, you've given this Bucco Nation hope. 

Right now there are Reds fans looking at those same standings and wondering who has the same amount of wins as their division-leading Reds.  They laugh when they see it's Pittsburgh.  It's time to turn doubters' laughs into tears, boys.

It's time you become more than just a week-long, feel-good story.  It's time you inspired and energized a fanbase.  What better time than tomorrow and what better place than PNC Park.

You can inspire a father to take his son to his first game, you can inspire a child to ask to play catch and you can inspire a family to gather around the television and watch a ballgame.  You can inspire.

Now you have a responsibility to those that are starting to believe.  You MUST continue to play your game, focus when there are mistakes made and give maximum effort. 

Fielders get in front of the ball, use whatever you can to knock it down, remember chicks dig scars.  Hitters, stay calm, stay true and stay in there.  Runners, be aggressive, be twitch quick and be nasty.  Pitchers...pitchers throw the f'ing ball inside.

Now lets go get our hero's welcome...
