I can empathize, Bertsch. While the Mountaineers had another strong year on the hardwood, and the Penguins are putting on a vulgar, dominating display in the playoffs, the Pirates erase all of that. There are young Pittsburghers now in puberty who have never known a winning season of Pirate baseball. They have underarm hair, but no memory of postseason baseball.

Perhaps worse than that is the daytime-soap morass that is WVU football. If you are not up on the high drama therein, you may enjoy visiting www.postgazette.com. The Pittsburgh media enjoys the follies of we mountain folk.

Still, while the Pirates remain terrible, having winning teams in a city, whatever the sport, matters. The WVU football saga has been something to behold. But Huggins helps a lot to compensate.
