Pirates Fan Strips Down To Boxers, Jumps Off 40-Foot Bridge To Celebrate Win
What 21 years of losing does to a man.
After winning their first postseason game in 21 years — a one-game wild-card "play-in" game that earns them the right to face the St. Louis Cardinals in a five-game Division Series — the Pittsburgh Pirates couldn't contain their excitement. Players stormed the mound and probably flooded PNC Park with champagne.
Many of their fans couldn't contain themselves either — especially a young man identifying himself as Dean Pasztor, who decided to celebrate by jumping off the Roberto Clemente Bridge and into the Allegheny River — about a 40-foot drop.
Pazstor apparently made it to shore safe and sound and apparently didn't catch any flack from the authorities for his stunt.
