Rejoice! The Pirates are guaranteed their first non-losing season since 1992. While the Pirates have won game 81 Tuesday night, Pittsburgh is on the verge of their first winning season in 21 years and are competing for a division title.

Billy Ray's hit was sweeping the nation as the Pirates were in the start of a pennant run. There is no twerking. Miley picked that up somewhere else.

Deep down, you always felt the same way about the Pirates. The song topped the charts late in the year into the early part of 1993.
Like Whitney Houston, the streak is now dead.
