Andrew McCutchen: Pittsburgh Pirate, Lox Thief
March 31, 2014 Leave a comment
It’s Opening Day! Yay! One of baseball’s rising superstars over the last few years has been Andrew McCutchen. Last season, Cutch won the National League MVP and led the Pittsburgh Pirates to their first winning year and playoff berth since 1992. It really was good to see the Pirates win, although as a Reds fan, it wasn’t fun to see them knock us out of the playoffs. Anyway, Andrew McCutchen stars in this new commercial from the long-running and well-loved “This Is SportsCenter” campaign. McCutchen, the Pirate Parrot, and a host of other lesser known pirate mascots (East Carolina’s Pee Dee, Seton Hall’s Pirate and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Captain Fear) raid the spread at a SportsCenter breakfast meeting. Cutch’s “The lox. Plunder the lox” line is fantastic.
