Good news for you sick, twisted people that were rooting for the Pittsburgh Pirates to lose at least 82 games this year.
I have found a Parrot costume on eBay, bid on it, and successfully secured the rights.
How can something so colorful and ridiculous not look great on me?
The colorful, lightly used, flammable Parrot costume is due to arrive on Oct 18, 2012 ---13 days before my obligated date to rock a Parrot costume because the Pirates are losers for the 20th consecutive MLB season.
One more thing: To the eBay bidder that continued bidding up this ridiculous costume-- It will be on sale Nov 1, 2012 for a premium since it was obviously important at $10.49 through $21.99 during the bidding process. (You will also be able to bid on the sweet Pirates Jersey I picked up off eBay---unless Cooperstown requests)
Until Next Time,
BEST OF MAXIM

The Nats blew a two run lead in the ninth inning by surrendering four runs to the St. Louis Cardinals. The game five loss ended Washington's incredible run and first postseason appearance since moving from Montreal in 2005. Entering...
Andrew McCutchen is proving that marketable baseball stars can still exist in Pittsburgh, after all.
The Pirates starting center fielder, who is coming off a season where he finished third in the major leagues in batting average (.327), has signed an endorsement deal with Georgia-based EvoShield. McCutchen was first introduced to the product back in 2009, as a rookie,
If you were to make a list of most disappointing Pirates from the 2012 season Rod Barajas would almost surely be somewhere near the top of it. Barajas had the worst WAR on the team, a full -1.0. Obviously that number is horrible. Arguably, Rod Barajas had the worst year of his career offensively. Year Tm [...]
