I am however a Pirate fan, have been for 20+ years, and figure that this streak has to end sometime. It is the longest such streak in any of the four major North American sport leagues...brutal.
As a Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan for the past 20+ years I feel your pain brother. The Reds haven't been as bad as the Pirates, but we have had some dismal years. The nice thing about pro sports is if the team sticks around in a city(before being sold to another one) that it all eventually cycles back around. The Pirates have some solid young talent, just need to build around it some.
