Pirates’ Losing Seasons Streak Turns 18

The Pirates lost their 82nd game over the weekend, officially clinching their 18th straight losing season, an unprecedented achievement across all major North American sports leagues.

While the clinching game was in itself completely academic, as this streak-clinching season was foreseeable from about the time Phantom Menace hit theaters, I mention the milestone only so I can relay this quote from my friend Matt Little:

“On the plus side, the Pirates’ losing streak can now legally buy pornography”
