Found a few incredible Pirates commercials from way back when and decided to put them into a single video. It includes four TV spots the Bucs used a decade ago with their “Every Day is Game Day” branding. Lloyd McClendon tells it like it is; Tike Redman has some fun on a Slip ‘N Slide; Jason Bay robs a dog of a frisbee; Jason Kendall does a little spring cleaning. Enjoy:
Anyone else remember these? Pretty hilarious stuff. As the Post-Gazette aptly wrote above an article regarding the commercials in March of ’04: “If we aren’t that good, at least we’re funny.” The team finished 72-89 that year, 32.5 games out of first place.
