We’ve heard a lot of jokes about the woeful Pittsburgh Pirates in recent years, but this may have been the best one.
Inspired by the Pope’s resignation earlier today:
No pope has resigned since 1415, which is also the last time the Pittsburgh Pirates had a winning record.

“Out a lot of things”
The Sharks are reeling, as they are winless in their last five games and lost the opening game of a lengthy road trip to the Columbus Blue Jackets, of all teams.
What happened tonight in their 6-2 loss, Coach McLellan?
Great quote from #Sharks coach McLellan after 6-2 loss in Columbus. Team was “out-worked, out-executed, out-goaltended, out a lot of things”

Think the Sharks were distracted tonight because their homes are closest NHL city to North Korean nuclear test
