Pirate Mike’s Favorite Pirate!

I love baseball. So having Pirate Mike be a baseball fan is a no-brainer. I also think it’s funny that, for some reason, Mike is willing to extend actual pirate status to, at least, Roberto Clemente. I’m guessing he would also include Willie Stargell and Dave Parker. Or at least I would. One of my favorite memories as a kid is watching the 1979 All-Star game with my father when Dave Parker made an incredible throw from deep in the outfield to nail a guy at home plate. My dad and I just looked at each other in amazement. Plus, Robert Clemente _is_ a pirate when you consider a pirate as the myth of the adventurer who is committed to freedom and humanity instead of just as a pirate as a crook.
