The Buccos are looking for their third win in a row tonight, as they take on the Mets at PNC Park. The weather sitch has been a little tenuous all day in the ‘Burgh, as my daughter and I were already rained out once after 90 minutes at the Deutschtown Music Festival on the Northside this afternoon. Here’s to hoping we don’t get another Northside rainout, as possible scattered thunderstorms are still in the forecast this evening.

In fact, it just started raining again at my place in the Oakmont/Verona area as I’m typing this. Let’s see what that does to our game prospects here in an hour.

Let’s go Bucs and let’s go away rain clouds!
