So this was a pretty slow day in terms of Pirates baseball news. Usually I get off of work and go to the gym and I get back to my apartment just in time for first pitch. Not today. I had to tap into my dry DVR and actually watched a movie (something I very rarely do) to pass the time. That was until I got a tweet from Jack that the Pirates had made a trade. The link that followed was pure gold.
Yep. The Pirates traded Joel Hanrahan to the Red Sox for Kevin Youkilis. Want to make this even better? I then got a tweet from David to check out another Wikipedia page.
You really can't make this stuff up.
As you know you can always trust Wikipedia.
As you can imagine this was not a true transaction. If you look at the date the trade happened May 26. It is May 24 today. Pretty funny stuff but some people actually took this seriously. That in itself makes it funny and has me concerned for human kind. Whatever.
