Much is going on in the sports world, both local and national.
- So Michael Vick has found himself a new home in Philadelphia. And gaging from the temperment of sports talk radio today, the free-loving world seems to be blown up about it.
This news doesn’t shock me and if I was a Philly fan, I’d expect to see haters step in line. And they are- and then some. But I’m not a Philly fan. Still, I’m glad Vick is getting a chance with another team. Good luck to him.
Make no mistake, I’m an animal lover as much as the next gal. He’s done his time and he’s earned this opportunity. I hope he uses this spotlight to draw attention to this horrific practice and culture.
- We had to give up our tickets for the Ravens/Redskins game. Oh man, what a game it was!
It’s nice to be back in the win column in Baltimore, isn’t it? I mean, it’s preseason- but with the O’s woes I’ll take what I can get. How about tough man, Michael Oher? Another tough guy in Paul Kruger… Troy Smith looking good… Ray giving the game ball to our new defensive coordinator, Greg Mattison. Things are good in the purple nation. Gotta love that we shut down Washington. Just shut them down.
- The Cal Ripken World Series is here. Take the drive to Aberdeen and check it out, you will be glad you did. This is sport at it’s purest.
- Orioles bench-warmer (left field) Felix Pie hit for the cycle tonight? Seriously.
So let’s see, what Orioles have ever hit for the cycle? Robinson, Ripken, Huff and now Pie. I thought Huff’s name was a bit out of place, but I was warming to the idea but now…Pie? Damn. Guess some congrats are in order.
- The Maryland Sting football team appears to be on a roll. These local guys won last Saturday, 21-14 and up their season record to 3-1.
Props go out to defensive guru Ryan Moody for striking fear into the opposing qb and reeling in two sacks (8 tackles). Gregory Onyiuke and Billy Warner contributed big with seven tackles apiece while Carl King also knocked down six. To check out all the stats go here.
The Sting travels to Montgomery County to stave off the Rams at Theodore Roosevelt High School at 6 p.m. Saturday.
