Opening day for new food at Oriole Park
I'm headed down to Camden Yards in a bit for Opening Day. I'll be on the Lower Concourse, mostly, eating. I was impressed with what I had at the media tasting Delaware North Companies Sportservice held a few weeks ago. But the real test is today.
High on my list: the "Big Boog," the National Bohemian bratwusts and the crabcake. Take a look at what else new awaits fans today.
Oh, I will also have prices for you.
I loved the story about the enigmatic Vladimir Guerrero that Kevin Van Valkenburg and Jeff Zrebiec have into today's paper, especially this passage.
In Montreal, (Guererro) started a tradition that continues to this day. Before each home series, Guerrero will write down the names of all the Spanish-speaking players and coaches coming to town. Then he will take the list to his mother, Altagracia Alvino, who has moved with him (along with the rest of his family) to every city he has played in during his career. She spends hours in the kitchen, cooking food for all the Latin players — typically beans and rice mixed with chicken, beef, pork or fish — trying to give them a little taste of home. Guerrero, who has made close to $118 million in salary during his career, will then take the food to the park in plastic bags and distribute it to the players and coaches.
