With a 12-game losing streak pinned to their tails, the donkeys Orioles are now severely in danger of losing 100 games in 2009.
In reality, who cares if it’s 102, 101, 100, 99 or 98? Honestly…it’s just a number.
But we’re doing our best here to keep folks interested in the team as the season comes to a close, so at the suggestion of listener “Jason in Abingdon”, we produced a funny little contest today on The Comcast Morning Show.
“When will they win again?” — I put 10 dates in the hat and we fielded 10 calls and gave those listeners a date. If the O’s break their current losing streak on that date, the listener wins one of our great prize packages.
Just so you can follow along at home, here are the names of listeners and the dates that were drawn for them today:
Tonight at Tampa Bay –Matt in White Marsh
Thurs., 10/1 at Tampa Bay — Jason in Abingdon
Fri., 10/2 vs. Toronto — Dennis in Dundalk
Sat., 10/3 vs. Toronto — Tom in White Marsh
Sun., 10/4 vs. Toronto — Chris in Perry Hall
Tue., April 6, 2010 at Tampa — Cory in York, PA
Fri., 4/9/10 vs. Toronto — Don in Joppatowne
Sun., 4/11/10 vs. Toronto — DJ in Bel Air
Tues., 4/30/10 vs. Boston — Jim in Dundalk
Tues., June 14, 2010 at San Francisco — Charlie in Towson
Good luck to everyone!
