The Old Soldier can’t wait until later this week when Joe will be behind the bar at Armand’s in Little Italy, so that I can shoot the breeze with him about The Pirates. He’s not a casual fan. Joe can name names and give statistics.
I think it’s time for the Old Soldier to pay closer attention to these Pittsburgh Pirates.
