Yeah, but the fundamental difference between DC and Baltimore is that the Post doesn't have the inferiority complex that would lead them to give precious column inches to a second-rate columnist to devote an entire column to discussing another city's sports teams. Seriously, how ridiculous is this? I guess that has to happen when your basketball team moved to DC and your minor league hockey team fled years ago. The minor league arena football league team (as if the AFL isn't already minor league) doesn't sell papers I suppose. So they have to pound their chests, forget about the fact that 300 bodies drop all over their city all year, and find something to look at 30 miles down the road and laugh at. Nice job Baltimore Sun. Oh, and NATIONALS WIN!!!! Beating John Smoltz. Classic.
Oh, and 13,229 people in Camden Yards tonight. 600 fewer than last night. No rain out there. And the Orioles even had a promotion for bleacher seats tonight where they'd throw in a free sandwich from Boogs. But really, we can keep this argument going. Or, as you might prefer, I can stick to being Switzerland and posting happy stuff about Maryland that everyone can agree on. Otherwise I'll have to keep kicking your ass.
Wait, seriously, there were free Bogg's sandwiches? I could have pulled over and ran in really quickly on my way home.You should check with the Post before you bash the Sun. Here was some breaking sports news there:Five Pirates Treasured by the NFLI'm sure this article (about Hampton Univ.'s NFL combine participants) wasn't entirely stolen from the New York Times article two days ago on the same topic. Nor stolen from the Mar. 29th article from the International News Service. Also Dallas Morning News on Mar. 29th.But I can see why you'd want to make fun of a newspaper where the columnists actually write their own material rather than just reading the wire reports like some kind of blogger.I will refer to my reply to your previous O's attendance post. Until you answer that, I will rest on my laurels.
In the interest of completion and fairness and accuracy, the Hampton story was also all over the April 9 issue of the Sporting News.And maybe I was a little too hard on Rick Maese. He does give a lot of love to the Terps.
This afternoon on his little radio show (which I got to hear literally 10 seconds of because Snyder's internet feed always craps out) Bram Weinstein was whining about the article. I really didn't read it as "haha look at them!" any more than I do the semi-annual "Gee, it sucks to be a Philly fan" article featured on ESPN.
