Go Go You Pilots!

I went to Sunday's Brewers game (Thanks again Ron & Gordo!) and realized that next year is The Brew Crew's 40th anniversary in Milwaukee. However, the team actually got its start 40 years ago this year when the Seattle Pilots took the field in Sick's Stadium.

For those that don't know, the Pilots moved to Milwaukee after one year in Seattle. From what I read, the story is rather complicated and I couldn't begin to explain it but this site can. Anyway, I found this video of Sick's Stadium with the official Seattle Pilots fight song as the soundtrack. The song is so full of hope for the Pilots' success and knowing what was eventually going to happen to the team... well, it almost brings a tear to my eye. Almost.
