Orioles: B.J. on N.C.

Former Orioles star B.J. Surhoff arrived for his annual stint as a spring training instructor, and barely got settled before one of the young clubhouse attendants started to chide him about Maryland's big overtime win over North Carolina.

Surhoff, the former Tar Heel, was having none of it.

"You lost to Morgan State,'' he replied.

End of conversation.

The clubhouse attendant should have responded, "You lost to a team who lost to Morgan State."

I'd bet B.J. could put a uni on today and outplay a lot of these guys .

Low blow, BJ. Low blow ....

The man has a point...

Way to go BJ! Gary Williams and the Terps are over-rated. They will end up in the NIT if they are lucky.

can you put "low blow" and "BJ" in the same post and not get fined?

Can you post this response and not get fined?

We shall see, I suppose.

"e" is for "extra hidden meanings"

And we beat North Carolina.

Julie -- You're exactly right.

Gary>Roy. 3 outta 4

BJ is a bum

No different than George Mason beating UNC, UCONN, and few other good team en route to thier Final 4. Morgan State is sorry. The Terps beat the Number #3 team in the Country (enough said) anyone can be beaten in Divison ONE BB.

Get A Life

As much as I love the Terps (BS 1987, PhD 1996, been a fan for over 30 years), some of you need to get a life. Steve, why exactly is BJ a bum, because he went to UNC? Back then, if I played baseball, I'd have definitely gone to UNC over UMD. The Terps were very bad in the '80's. Because he was a bad player? I beg to differ! There's a reason he's in the O's HOF. Being a fan doesn't mean losing your sense of humor (well, except when the Yankees or Duke is involved).

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
