Pirates Fan Doesn't Score

On Friday evening, the United States faced Sweden in the Women's World Cup in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. During the second half, Fox Sports showed this guy wearing a Pirates hat drinking a beer. (I guess Captain America, since he is wearing a Captain's hat, was in the picture too.)

The Sweden-US game finished in a 0-0 tie. I figure that after the World Cup match, the Pirates fan got some food and went back to his hotel room to see the result of the Pittsburgh-Philadelphia Phillies game. Due to a rain delay, Pirates fan was amazed that the game was still on. In extra innings. And scoreless. The Pirates finally scored a run in the bottom of the 13th at approximately 1:05 AM Eastern time to win 1-0.

Basically, the guy in the Pirates hat could have watched about 2 hours of soccer and 6 hours of baseball without seeing one goal or one run. Um, Woooo for a guy wearing a Pirates hat at an international event!
