Pirates fan has note excusing him from school due to case of ‘Bucco fever’ (photo)


Fan-freaking-tastic. A young Pittsburgh Pirates fan would have had to miss watching his favorite team’s Game 2 showdown with the St. Louis Cardinals if it weren’t for a note that excuses him from school just before game time as he has “Bucco fever” and has an appointment scheduled with Dr. McCutchen, as in Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen, obviously.

Good on you, Braden’s mom or dad. And Braden: No jumping off any bridges today, kid.

Also, others afflicted with “Bucco fever”: The newborns at St. Clair Hospital and this guy, who made good on a promise he made to his son over 20 years ago. A good time to be a Pirates fan in Pittsburgh, that’s for sure, even if the team finds itself down a game to the Cardinals heading into Game 2.
