A few weeks ago, the Pittsburgh Pirates clinched their 18th consecutive losing season. That’s right, this losing streak is now legal! Their losing streak can buy cigarettes. Their losing streak can be drafted into the army. Their losing streak is applying for college. Their losing streak can get a Facebook account. This is getting ridiculous! They trade away Barry Bonds, and the Pirates just can’t put together a winning season. Things looked positive during opening week of the 2010 season when they took two of three games from the defending NL West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers… However, the Pirates soon returned to form shortly after. After clinching #18, the Pirates’ Facebook wall exploded more than right before the trade deadline.
