Just a short note to let you know that Bucco Blog will be undergoing server and database maintenance the next few days so if you happen to see a page that looks more goofy than normal, or the site doesn’t come up for you at one time or another, you’ll know why. Sorry for any inconvenience.
MLBlogs has had a lot of problems with Six Aparts name servers today which has resulted in Bucco Blog being unavailable for hours.
Sorry for the problems.
I don’t usually post these types of fan advertisements, but I was contacted by a fan who is selling some of his Pirates memorabilia and after checking things out, he really has some great stuff and seems willing to make a very good deal with the right collector.
Baseballs, display cases, paintings, and a bat. He even has one of those Pete Rose baseballs. I was interested because he has McCutchen and Walker bobbleheads.

My little surfer dude loves the beach and the pool.
Today I found out he has learned how to squirt water squeezing his hands together like a pump. Boy did I find out.
Kids are great – they keep you young and they keep you guessing.
I pray everyone in your life is healthy and happy.
$4.29 per gallon of gas in Orlando, Florida. (When do we elect a new Pres?)
Un-believable. I’m going to have to fire up my ’57 K-model here pretty soon.
Happy Memorial Day! May all your family cookouts be hearty (just don’t drink soda pop!).
Since many of the front office gurus and players have property in Florida, I thought I should take a second to mention that there’s a chance a hurricane may develop next week:
That’s the current Canadian model (CMC) from the Florida State’s computer showing a 90-hour run. It’s suggesting the path with be more northerly into the Gulf of Mexico to the panhandle, whereas a few of the more established models have it cutting across Florida much lower and with much less intensity, and one or two models don’t even see it.
Whether it develops over the next few days or not, I have no clue – I’m not a Met. It seems everyone is waiting to see if more intensification occurs before getting too worried. If nothing else, the state has a chance to see significant rainfall.
But if it does, it could be a late developer like Alberto was last year so stay tuned to NOAA radio and the National Hurricane Center.
Gorzelanny gave up beer for Lent and I gave up gambling and Pirates losing. I guess I wasn’t taken very serious on the losing.
But it was worth the try as we need all the help we can get these days.
How sweet was THAT for the Gators?
For a team that wasn’t even supposed to be on the field, they humbled Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith.
No, embarrassed him.
What a dominating game they played.
Considering they also won the basketball national championship last April, Florida now concurrently holds two national titles for the first time in major college history.. both in the year the university turned 100.
I hope you plucked down a few dollars like I did on Leak and the Gators because you got a handsome reward if you did.
Whoa baby! It’s good to be a Gator fan (unlike in one baseball world, huh?).
Chomp on that!
How about the Joneses this year?
This guy not only put up the neighborhood’s best display, but spent half-a-year making a real carousel front yard decoration in Orlando, of all places.
To top it off, he has flashing kaleidoscopic choreography where all his lights flash on and off in the beat of various Christmas jingles he plays in surround sound — on Boise speakers, no less.
"There’s nothing like having Vegas on steroids engulfing your home," one neighbor said. "He could have at least waited until mid-December to put it up," another neighbor quipped.
Beat that Mr. Smith..
Just in time for the winter meetings in Orlando — murder headlines (and one odd tale) from the area over the last 2 days:
"That’s folks, grab your kiddies and head to Orlando to see Mickey at the Magic Kingdom.. but don’t forget to pack your bullet proof vest and AK-47."
