  3. Boris Yeltsin announces that Russia will stop targeting cities of the United States and her allies with Nuclear Weapons
  4. Miley Cyrus was born
  5. Barney and Friends debuted on PBS
  6. Bill Clinton was elected president
  7. Aladdin was in theaters
  8. Jeffrey Dahmer pleaded guilty

The world looks a lot different than it did in 1992, but we're glad that the Pirates are finally back to where they were in 1992. Let's celebrate with Pittsburgh today. After 20 years, the losing streak is over. Well done, guys!
