Anyone tell me what the 1.5GB means? I'm guessing it's something like a game-breaker?

Means "Game back"

In other words, the two teams havn't played the same number of games, so the leader has more wins, but may have the same number of losses.

Example - LA could be 103-50, but we're 100-50. Since the loss total is the same, each win we're behind counts as a 1/2 game.

Obviously there is no indifference on the "woo'ing" which I find hilarious. You either like it or want to kill everything in sight after hearing it. It just amazes me that one little sound makes that much of a difference.

When, in reality, our crowds aren't that loud to begin with.

It isn't one little sound when thousands of people are incessantly woo'ing throughout the vast majority of a game.

It makes our fans look like ****ing tools. If you want to do the woo thing after a home run or something, fine, but Jesus tapdancing Christ, tune it way down.

You don't hear the same people making noise when the Bucs (or Pens) are down. Just incessantly woo-ing like idiots whenever a game is out of hand in their favor. It doesn't go hand-in-hand.

I do not think it is coincidental that the wooing emerged at the same time as the beginning of the college semester. It's ****ing worthless and a disgrace to sports. It's the wave transfigured into noise.

see this I agree with. Woo is not a problem. The fact that it never stops is.

I'd agree it'd be better after a hit or something. A collective "woo!" then move on. I'd also like if there is a man on base something comes over the video screen w/ DB screaming "Yes! Yes! Yes!" and the crowd just continue it on. That'd be so damn awesome.

I really don't like Daniel Bryan at all. But that would still be solid. Cena does the you can't see me after a stolen base

In more relevant news, the Pirates are really setting a firm developmental pipeline up in Latin America...after the GCL Pirates won their league title with a roster almost entirely made up of internationals, the DSL Pirates followed suit today and won the Dominican Summer League.

The DSL team has a handful of solid prospects that may make the jump to America next year.

FYI, you can register on the Pirates website for a chance to buy Pirates playoff tickets, if they make it.

I just can't believe that in the year 2012 there are ostensible adults who are into wrestling. It boggles my mind.
