A Great Story Of Non-Success

Mike GreenspireContributor IAugust 5, 2009

So, as you know, I am proudly from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, so I was born to love the Pirates, Penguins and Steelers.

As I'm sure you also know, the Pirates stink. Really bad.

So, my pops usually does a ticket plan every year where he can pick and choose 10 Sunday home games to go to. Well, after the Sanchez and Wilson trades, my dear old pa had apparently had it.

Now, I talk to him on the phone all the time, and he's actually at the Pirates/Nationals game now as I write this. He headed over to the North Shore ticket box to... get this... ask for a refund.

He says "I didn't pay at the beginning of the season to see a minor league team. So, I want my money back,"

Guess what they did? Laughed in his face? Told him to beat it? No way, Jose?

Nope, none of those.

They obliged and gave him online directions to go and get the money put back into his credit card.

Is that funny stuff or what?
