Mike Mussina back to Baltimore? Get off the pipe. How about some Teixeira and/or Burnett? Maybe the O’s can get David Wells, Armando Benitez and Esteban Yan back while they’re at it. I’m sure Jeff Reboulet is available. That’s a bit much. I can’t speak ill of Reboulet. His name does sound like Goulet and he had (and still could have) a strong moustache.
Idiot ideas like this are the kind of thinking that allowed Cal to stick around past his “sell by” date.
Fox Sports new color analyst and former Ravens’ head coach, the offensive genius, Brian Billick is gonna start blogging. He’s signed a deal with Nestor “Nasty” Aparicio and his Baltimore radio station WNST-AM 1570 to help be a part of their new website which is supposed to be an “online sports community” that would combine Facebook, Youtube and ESPN.com with blogs aplenty, news, videos and podcasts. This might just be the trendiest website ever. It’s due to launch in 90 days and the featured blogger on the site as of now is none other than the big brain himself, Brian Billick.
“I’ll have observations about what’s going on in the league,” he said. “Certainly I may have an observation or two about the Baltimore Ravens.”
Lord knows the man will have the time to blog but to bank on people wanting to hear the rantings of a fired ex-coach is a little much. In addition to Billick, the site will have local, Baltimore area, experts writing on the Ravens, Orioles, hunting, fishing and other fun topics.
This might be the most unnecessary website ever created, Billick is a little behind the curve on this one. As a matter of fact, the only time Billick was ahead of the curve was when he had Daunte Culpepper and Randy Moss on his team…everyone knows Marvin Lewis won that Super Bowl.
The Orioles have already exceeded the expectations of their fans this season. I should probably speak for myself. Yes, they’re in last place but it’s not a strong last place. The pitching and offense are much better than expected. However, there’s one hurdle the O’s can’t seem to jump.
“We should just quit playing on Sundays and we’ll be in first place,” Jay Payton said. “It’s just one of those stats. Maybe we need to cut the head off a monkey or something to switch it up. I think it’s usually a chicken, but I’m thinking maybe a monkey would work. But that’s animal cruelty. I wouldn’t do that.”
I bet Ramon Hernandez or Kevin Millar wouldn’t hesitate. Aubrey Huff’s the utility guy. Animal sacrifice must fall under the utility designation although he’d probably say that’s horseshit.
** Sorry about the imbedded crap on the video but every clean version has been taken down or has no sound.
I’m still a bit troubled by the Baltimore Orioles start. I don’t want to believe because they let me down every year after getting off to a hot start. This season does seem different so far. Maybe it’s because they brought back Orioles Magic.
I’m not going to front. I’ve loved this song since I used to watch the O’s at Memorial Stadium. Let’s see Chimp Rage pull a Nats song out of his ass to match this old hotness. Yeah that’s right. He can’t. However if they get Paul Lo Duca, Elijah Dukes, Da Meat Hook, Lastings Milledge and Jesus Flores to collaborate, Orioles Magic could have some competition.
