Hey, if I have to have that song in my head, so do you.
Not to be a Twitter shill, but the Pirates have been running a “12 Days of GIFmas” promotion on their feed with some genuinely hilarious GIFs. Kevin Newman’s facial expressions alone are worth the follow. I imagine that being on the Pirates’ social media team isn’t the easiest job, so I’m glad it’s having fun with this.
We dealt with firsts in last week’s Trivia Tuesday, so it makes sense for this edition to cover historical Pirates finalities. Get ready to take your best flying guesses, put on your thinking caps or pull up your favorite search engine.
