February 14th, Orioles pitchers and catchers reported to camp. This is awesome. I look forward to that day every year, as do a countless number of other baseball fans. Unfortunately…bloggers, reporters and tweeters also reported that day…over, and over, and over again about nothing.

I don’t know much about the structure they have over at the Baltimore Sun as far as sports writers go. I know their main O’s guys are Connolly, Zrebiec and Gould and Jones Jr. (I know very little about those last two). Then you have Schmuck who seems a general sports writer covering the O’s and the Ravens. KVV is in there somewhere too. MASN clearly has Steve, Roch, Amber, and the always Boston, always hypocritical Royle. Matt Venzel chimes in over at B the site.
But, most recently we’ve had run-ins with two wanna-be-Kornheiser types.
A look ahead in the world of the Eutaw Street Hooligans. We’re not really forward thinkers but we do have some plans for the near future. Here is what they are:
1. We’ll have 2 representatives down at Spring Training for a bit in Det. Tom Ludlow and Kevin Lomax.
2. The return of the Eutaw Street Hooligans Fantasy Baseball League, this time with more shit talk and a lot more analysis. If you want in, let us know. Maybe we’ll let you in.
3. Opening Day, we’ll be there.
4. A new weekly column compiling the best, and worst of twitter around the Orioles. So be on the lookout for This Week In Twitter, or as we will call it T.W.I.T.
…if I wasn’t so worried about getting tossed by security, I’d head over to the Law Offices of Peter G. Angelos and give the big guy a hug. Getting Vladimir Guerrero could be that huge.
I read this statement in a column 3 days ago and immediately thought to myself, “this is gonna be good.” I, of course, was being sarcastic and man was I right. It has taken me 72 hours to pen my rebuttal for a few reasons, the most significant of which is that is how long it took me to convince myself to go back to that webpage and attempt to read this dreck for a second time. But for you, the
seven people who read this blog still for some unknown reason…maybe pity fans, I went back and read it in order to break down and illustrate how idiotic this jumbled, mislead arrangement of sometimes seemingly random words thrown together really is.
So, that thing we talked about? It happened just as expected. The Orioles won a vigorous negotiation against themselves to acquire the services of Vladimir Guerrero. To put the cherry on it, it only took 8 million dollars to do it.
Sarcasm aside, this move definitely takes the Orioles offseason down a letter grade in my opinion.
If you’ve been to Oriole Park, or driven into the city from 295, or watched a game on TV, or live in Baltimore and felt this strange soreness in your ass over the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly been affected by the cavernous, gigantic, dick-head hotel called the Hilton.
