Terez, they aren't even real pirates..hardly a baseball team either..

Thirty members of the Pirates’ team party, more than half of them players, were given a one-hour, guided-tour visit of the White House yesterday, a day before President Obamawill welcome the Steelers. “I thought we’d take a better tour,” said infielder Ramon Vazquez, noting that it was brief and limited. “It was nice to be in there, though. Those paintings they got — the 1800s, man.” Craig Monroe, as did others, expressed displeasure that the new president couldn’t greet them. “That was kind of disappointing,” Monroe said. The fact President Obama was busy with his day job, he added with a grin, “that stinks for him.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

If it was any other team… the Prez would’ve made some time. The Pirates have stunk it up for too long. -TO
