I actually have a longer Road to 17 post to write up about the whole Penguins winning the Stanley Cup thing, but for now let's just say that I got up at 6:45 AM today to get a t-shirt and a copy of the PG and Trib to laminate and put on my wall next to my Steeler papers.
The official six-week Pirate season begins tonight, because the Penguins are done and the Steelers don't start camp until late July. Zach Duke gets the start against Armando Galarraga. Duke's coming off of one of his worst starts of the season, but those bad starts seem to be isolated to games against the Braves. Which means that either he's going to have a good start tonight, or I just jinxed the crap out of him.
