Bucs. Are. Playoff. Bound.

The title of this post comes from the text I sent to my cousin at exactly 11:01 p.m. on Monday night. The Pirates had beat the Cubs 2-1 (on a CRAZY final play) shortly before the Cardinals beat the Nationals, eliminating Washington from playoff contention and sending the Bucs to the playoffs for the first time since 1992.

Not much can be said about this that hasn’t been said already. Here are a few links from around the web talking about the game and the ensuing celebration.

Here are some great photos of the crazy final out in one tidy Deadspin post.

The Big Lead likes Travis Snider’s singing.

These photos of Andrew McCutchen from the post-game celebration say more than words ever could about what a huge moment this for the Pirates and their fans.
