Today in sports
If you were looking for a watershed day in Baltimore sports, I guess today would be right near the top of the list. The Orioles wrap up the 2010 season with a chance to sweep a four-game series from the Detroit Tigers and there's a fairly important NFL game going on over at Heinz Field.
I'm guessing you know how important that game in Pittsburgh is -- even at this early stage of the season -- but why don't you check out my column on the subject right here if you haven't already. It'll be good for my self-esteem, which has been sagging since my deflating defeat at the MCW event in Dundalk a few weeks ago. Kevin Eck continues to duck me, by the way, so I may have to go on a "Bum of the Month" tour. I wonder if Roch has any nights off coming up.
There's a lot of great reading material on the Orioles and Ravens in today's newspaper and on the Web site, including a voluminous profile of Peter Angelos by Childs Walker and Jeff Zrebiec's story about Andy MacPhail's offseason plans.
While you check all that out, I'm heading for the man cave to watch the Ravens.
