International Talk Like A Pirate Day 2006

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a "holiday" that occurs every September 19. The way to observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day is to spend the day speaking in Pirate.

On September 19, 2006, Red Reporter Caleb's first post in that day's game thread (a game against the Houston Astros) in Pirate. From that point on, most of RR posted in the game thread in Pirate, with numerous bad pirate jokes and puns and the like.

At one point later in the game, Red Reporter sukr noted that the game thread on Crawfish Boxes, the Houston Astros' SB Nation website, was inhabited only by a single person, apparently talking to "himself," and he suggested the RR faithful go over and "scuttle his ship," a reprise of RR's takeover of the LA Dodgers' site. A number of RR faithful then decided to post in the Crawfish Boxes game thread, in many cases in Pirate.

Sister Daedalus was first.

After it was discovered that the sole inhabitant of Crawfish Boxes was not a "he" but a "she," Red Reporter boobs, who cannot be trusted, promptly went over to Crawfish Boxes and began hitting on the Astros fan who was posting there. Red Reporter Ash, having previously been on the receiving end of a number of boobs' advances, nominated sukr to go over also and act as Designated Driver (typer?) for boobs. Nevertheless, it appears that boobs' advances were not well-received or perhaps just misunderstood, depending on your point of view.

The Reds won 5-4.
