I have recently come into possession of both the 1979 Pirates World Series box set of DVDs and a lot of free time. So I wanted to announce that this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. I will be live blogging Game 1 of the 1979 World Series.

The favored Baltimore Orioles will go with Mike Flanagan (23-9, 3.08) while the Pittsburgh Pirates counter with Bruce Kison (13-7, 3.19). Game time temperature at Memorial Stadium is predicted to be 41 degrees.

While I will attempt to bring a 1979 feel to this Live Blog, the number of cultural references as well as the chance of quality suspension of disbelief will depend on whether someone buys me beer.

Update: Sorry there were some technical issues on Tuesday, namely that I could not figure out how to play this DVD on my typewriter. Therefore I have postponed the Live Blog to Wednesday. Sorry for any inconvenience.
