ALBANY Bob.,Do us all a cavorted and go root for the Nationals and the Redskins

This could be the least attended "fan"fest in a while. It's obvious this team realizes it makes more by losing than winning. Keep pouring your dollars in sheep. The O's keep laughing in your face.

Gee, I thought this was a FAN blog...not a JADED-WHINEFEST blog. For all the "Who cares?" type posters, do us all a big, fat favor and become Yankee fans or take up origami or something. We don't need any more cynicism, we're all full up here.

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
