Why Davis’ Down Numbers Don’t Spell Trouble

Why Davis’ Down Numbers Don’t Spell Trouble

April 23, 2014 | Ethan Stewart

Player A: 2 home runs.  .235 Batting Average.  10 RBI. Not earth-shattering numbers huh?  I would agree with you that while looking at these statistics, I would not assume that these were the numbers of a good major league baseball player, let alone the American League MVP of the last 2 years.  Yes, it’s true, [...]

Baltimore football and its origins

April 23, 2014 | Carter Smith

Today i watched a 30 f0r 30 documentary entitled “The Band that never died”. This documentary followed the journey of the Baltimore Colts marching band and eventual Marching Ravens. After thinking about all the luck that was involved in this story, i was truly shocked. When the Baltimore Colts moved out of their facility in [...]

How to be a Baltimore Sports Fan: Issue One

April 23, 2014 | Tony Wisniewski

Baltimore sports fans are irrational, unrealistic, unforgiving, and hard-to-fool.  Baltimore sports fans are unlike any other sports fans, because they’re–as Toyota used to say–”simply the best.” Every Wednesday, over the next 40-years or so, I’m going to author a semi-regular feature entitled “How to be a Baltimore Sports Fan.”  The idea behind this stems back [...]

Ravens Draft Talk #1

April 23, 2014 | Kenneth Biddison

Hello Everyone I would like to take some time to talk about the Ravens potential to draft Terrance West. As Ravens fans we all saw that we had a struggle going on with the run game.

Angelos Was Right…About DC Baseball Fans

April 23, 2014 | Robert Canady

I fear Peter Angelos may have been correct.  About ten years ago when he was trying to block Washington, DC from getting a Major League Baseball team, he was quoted as saying, “There are no real baseball fans in D.C.” I remember thinking at the time, what an out of touch old coot he must [...]

Wizards take 2-0 Series Lead with Overtime Thriller

April 23, 2014 | Nick Dorsey

  The Washington Wizards have gone into a tough Chicago environment and have stolen two games on the road. Both games have featured deficits in the fourth quarter, but the Wizards have found ways to battle back and win late in the clutch. Stealing one game on the road would have been huge for the [...]

Davis’ down numbers could spell trouble

April 22, 2014 | Tony Wisniewski

Some teams live by the long ball. Fans love it, players thrive on it, and as we learned from a yester-year MLB marketing campaign, “chicks” even dig it.  Home run hitters are an elite bunch, and for all intents and purposes, Josmil Pinto, Todd Frazier, Charlie Blackmon, and the great Josh Donaldson are a new [...]

April 22, 2014 | Ethan Stewart

  Just like when the Summer and Winter Olympics roll on in every few years, the FIFA World Cup gives us Americans another chance to showcase our patriotism and root on the United States Mens National Soccer Team.  This summer’s World Cup will be played in Brazil and international soccer will once again captivate the [...]

The tale of a pseudo superstar

April 22, 2014 | Tony Wisniewski

I used to be the next great Baltimore media superstar. It was the mid-2000s, I was working in the sports department at The Baltimore Sun.  I was young, handsome, brilliant, and knowledgeable.  I was the type of sport-laden “mind that would come along once, maybe twice in a generation”—a self-describing line from The Big Bang Theory’s Dr. Sheldon Cooper.
