International Talk Like A Pirate Day, celebrated on September 19th of each year, was created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy) of Albany, Oregon. They proclaimed that everyone in the world should talk like a pirate for one day. The “holiday” and its observance evolved from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.
The Pirates open their 18th season of competition, the 34th season of AHL action at the Cumberland County Civic Center, on Saturday, October 9th when the Manchester Monarchs visit the Cumberland County Civic Center for a 7 p.m. contest. Join the Pirates for the first Saturday Night is Hockey Night in Portland game of the season.
