I was just wondering if there were other fans of baseball here? I was just wondering if I was not the only die-hard fan of America's past-time.
Good to see another O's fan! It looks like this year, they're making a step up from where they have been! I was a massive, massive fan when players like B.J. Surhoff, Chris Hoyles, Brady Anderson, and Cal Ripken were around... but I'll watch and catch as many games as I can when time allows!Football never interested me when I was growing up in Baltimore, even though the Colts were a winning team with Johnny Unitas. Baseball, on the other hand, was more enjoyable for me to watch. A school friend and I used to occasionally go over to the old Memorial Stadium and catch a night Orioles game. I still remember one game when the O's were down 4-1. It was about the 6th inning when.....BAM, BAM, BAM.....three successive home runs were hit by Brooks Robinson, Boug Powell, and Frank Robinson! The O's managed to scratch one more run on some hits and went on to win the game 5-4. Sometimes I'd catch myself getting too wrapped up in Baseball and getting all upset and mad when it semed the team were beating their own selves by making bad plays. After moving away from the Balto. metro area I've gotten away from sports almost altogether. Though of the major league sports, baseball will always be my favorite.
