I Gotta Have More Cowbell, Baby!

I went to my first Mariners game Saturday night, and it will not be my last.  I can’t wait for the Championship game.  July 25th, 4:00pm at 1st Mariner center.  I had a great time, it was affordable, fast, furious and fun.

The Harrisburg Stampede grabbed a 1-0 lead, and it went downhill fast after that.  When the final score is 63-15, you tend to forget some of the scoring plays.  There are a couple things that jump out.

I challenge anyone to look at Baltimore Mariners starting QB, E.J. Nemeth, and tell me you are looking at a Will Ferrell clone.  Then, you add to the fact that half the crowd had cow-bells, man I couldn’t stop laughing.

During the game, I saw anywhere from 5 to 10 people, some kids, come up to the bench and ask for photo’s with E.J. Nemeth.  And he gave them.  AWESOME!!!!  That is very cool.

The Harrisburg Stampede are a bunch of clueless, classless thugs.  Every chance they got, they took cheap shots.  It was disgraceful.  It was like they were made up of a bunch of no talent Hines Wards.  Yes, they were THAT classless… Disgusting.

Everywhere we went, staff was kind and helpful and grateful for me to be there.  It was like I was in OZ, compared to the last several years of going to Oriole games.  I am not joking, the overall attitude of “Thank you” was everywhere.  It is a stark reminder of just how far going to OPACY has fallen.

So, buy your tickets and show up on July 25 for the Championship game.  It will be a nice way to usher in the Ravens season, and bring your cowbell!!!!!!!!!!  Guess what? I got a fever! And the only prescription..  is more cowbell!
