When it comes to sporting world punching bags, there’s no team as easy to beat in the face than the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Kansas City Royals give them a run for their suck, but the Pirates can claim something that no other team in major professional sports can: 18 consecutive losing seasons.

And yet, despite that awfulness, Pittsburgians still love their black and yellow. That’s what Check-In hosts (and the brothers behind The Hype Men podcast) Eric and Jeff Rosenthal found out when they hung with Mac Miller after a recent appearance in NYC. “We know they suck. We’re well aware of it. We love it,” he said.
Who knew? Apparently, Pirates fans are glad their team sucks. But that could become a problem because the team is currently on pace for its first winning season since the first George Bush was president. So we implore you Pittsburgh Pirates, start losing now or you’ll lose your fans forever.
