The Pirates believe in the power of Zoltan

Pirates players and their fans have created a buzz.

"We are finally going to fulfill our prophecy."

After so many years of losing, the Bucs started this season with humble expectations -- at best.

The genesis of Zoltan in 'Dude, Where's My Car?'

The Pirates are celebrating their winning ways by making a "z" with big hits. The genesis of that reaches to a scene in the movie, "Dude, Where's My Car." (7/3/2012)

"They laughed at us. And they mocked us."

This year, however, the players are having fun. And they're winning.

"But who's laughing now? I'll tell you who's laughing now. We are!"

The reason?


Somehow, for some reason, the players and fans have latched onto a scene from the 2000 comedy movie "Dude, Where's My Car?" in which a group of losers celebrate the pending arrival of Zoltan.

"It is going to be awesome!"

Don't resist it. Embrace it in tomorrow's Post-Gazette.
