Pirates bandwagon

I am writing on behalf of the Pittsburgh Pirates (with which I have no affiliation). If you are just now jumping on the bandwagon, we want you!

Don't believe anything negative being written about you because you are interested in our team only now. We recognize that getting riders on our bandwagon in a town of Steelers and Penguins fans is not easy. More important, we recognize that the Pittsburgh fan does not easily get off the bandwagon once on -- you have or will become "invested," not just financially (which, don't get me wrong, we're good with), but emotionally as well.

Regardless of what happens the rest of this year or next, you won't easily get off the bandwagon, at least not as easily as we got you on it (which wasn't really all that easy).

Welcome aboard, next stop ... ? (don't know, but you have as much chance of getting off as a Keanu Reeves passenger in "Speed").
