SACK with Carne Cabeza

SACK with Carne Cabeza

The week in sports gone by! Tuesday started on a low note. We were officially eliminated from the playoffs by the lowly, Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday started things in an upward direction! Schoop made his debut at second and quickly had a hit and later followed it with a home run! Thursday, Miguel Gonzales threw a gem or something. I’m not sure, I didn’t watch the game. This is how I imagined it looked … Read entire article »

O’s vs. Nats: a forced rivalry?

O’s vs. Nats: a forced rivalry?

There’s a lot to be said in this world about the whole “Baltimore versus DC” thing when it comes to most things in life: Cost of living (Baltimore is better), public transportation (DC is better), bars full of smug, douchey entitled assholes paying far too much for Rum and Diets (DC), crackheads (DC, their *mayor* was a crackhead, can’t compete with that), and so forth. And I guess there’s something of a rivalry between the … Read entire article »

This season, manager Buck Showalter, unsatisfied with last … Read entire article »

This whole “Complacent Reynolds” thing is pretty funny

This whole “Complacent Reynolds” thing is pretty funny

As it popped up the other day on Orioles Hangout, a delightful thread about a delightful photo of one Baltimore Oriole Mark Reynolds nonchalantly eating a bag of sunflower seeds as Red Sock David Ortiz baseruns his way past, seemingly complacent in the whole affair. The photo in and of itself is hilarious, and then the internet does what it does best, started Photoshopping the crap out of it and placing Complacent Reynolds in all … Read entire article »

WTF Baltimore FOP3, WTF

WTF Baltimore FOP3, WTF

And there we all were, watching the Orioles proceed to give it allllll up to the Red Sox last night as the bullpen had what can only be described as a “goddamn meltdown” – the Baltimore Interwebs expressing its distaste with the team for essentially giving up a sure thing after practically sleeping their way through a 6 run lead to flailing their way to a 1 run loss. And then this happened: [blackbirdpie id=”70325049445449728″] OH NO … Read entire article »

Dear Baltimore Bars/Restaurants: Charge Yankees Fans More

Dear Baltimore Bars/Restaurants: Charge Yankees Fans More

And so tonight begins the fabled mass invasion of Yankees fans coming to Baltimore as the weekend series begins, which is sort of like those loud droning cicadas that appear every 17 years, but instead they appear a few times every year, and they’re a lot fatter. At any rate, one of the driving forces bringing the hordes of mouth breathers to Baltimore would be the immensely cheap ticket prices, affordable accommodations, and practically free … Read entire article »
