I’ve been in and out of the loop lately — crazy things going on in Omaha, you know — so forgive me if this has been remarked upon previously. But I checked the calendar yesterday, and it said Friday. Then I saw this picture of Zach Duke, and it said “Friday” in the caption. But wait! That can’t be right — the Pirates usually look like hell on Fridays!
Lo, behold, and holy crap — I believe this is the second home Friday in a row without the red vests. I don’t know, maybe there’s a ketchup (or catsup, if you prefer) shortage in Pittsburgh and the Bucs are doing their part in spreading awareness. Or maybe somebody in the front office finally said, “You know, those really look bad. We should probably stop wearing them.”
On second thought, that’d be giving too much credit to anybody in that front office. It’s probably the ketchup thing. — Bryan
