Youngster leaves school with “Buccos Fever”
- Updated: October 4, 2013
I used to love skipping out on school for the first game of the baseball season. Luckily, we had a great principal who was perfectly accepting of those sudden “illnesses” that always seemed to pop up around right around opening day. It’s one reason we can appreciate this amazingly awesome note excusing one young Pirates fan’s “sickness” for a Pirates playoff game at PNC.
You can tell Mom or Dad got just as much of a child-like kick out of writing this one. Buccos Fever indeed. Following Pittsburgh’s 7-1 bounceback win this afternoon in St. Louis, don’t be surprised if Bucco fever continues to spread. We hope there’s a massive outbreak.
