Wednesday Morning’s Crab Cakes and Light Beer

The Swinging Bunt

Nothing to see here.  SI’s Tom Verducci sends a Spring Training Postcard from Fort Lauderdale as he spent the day with the Orioles.  The first thing he mentions is how the O’s brought 37 pitchers to camp and that Jeremy Guthrie was joking that the team encouraged him to go to the WBC so they could better divvy up some innings a little easier.  Yeah, good, with Guthrie gone, any Baltimore fan who goes down to see a Spring Training game will now only have a chance to see one somewhat interesting pitcher, Koji Uehara, and 35 guys no one thinks are any good.

Club Scarlet Update!  Last Wednesday it was brought to your attention that the Washington Capitals are making a concerted effort to get the ladies inside the Verizon Center.  Now the story is that Club Scarlet, a women-only fan club, now boasts an astounding 2,000 members and the Caps are showing early successful returns in their attempt to “delicately tap into their feminine fan base.”  Come to think of it, I’d like to ‘delicately tap into their feminine fan base,’ too, and… I’d Rock the Red… for her.

Sports by Brooks says former Ravens corner Anwar Phillips was involved in a bad foreclosure scheme.

Bro Bible gives what they think are and the “Top-10 Pregame Tradition on the Campus Gridiron.” Very cool that they have videos of all 10 taking place.

The Orioles are giving out free tickets on their birthdays to people who register them with the team.  That’s another steep in the right direction for the home town team.

CMS Video(s) of the Day

As everyone knows by now, Maryland had a tough loss last night at Comcast Center to Wake Forest and their NCAA Tournament hopes appear to have taken a major blow.  Unfortunately, Dave Neal may have gotten the worst of it.

So to make the Terps feel a little better, I wanted to just let everyone know… you can still make fun of those stupid Dukies, the CMS Morning Staff presents “Greg Paulus: ‘I Kissed a Boy’.”
