Would you trade Tex in orange for a Ravens loss?

December 14, 2008 | Drew Forrester

If you could only have one of the two, which would you take today?

Scenario A — Just prior to kick-off, the PA announcer at Ravens’ stadium (not sure who that is but he needs a better broadcast voice…lol) says this:  “Ladies and gentlemen, I direct your attention to midfield, where the Ravens have a very special honorary captain for today’s game vs. Pittsburgh. Walking out to participate in the coin toss is the NEWEST MEMBER OF THE BALTIMORE ORIOLES – MARK TEIXEIRA!!!”

Then the Ravens go out and lay an egg and lose 24-7 to the Steelers.

Scenario B — Sometime around 3:30 pm today, word comes from Ken Rosenthal or one of the other top-notch baseball story-chasers in the country that Teixeira has agreed to a contract with the Red Sox.

Then the Ravens go out and wallop the Steelers, 24-7.

Remember, you can only have ONE of these scenarios become reality.

Tex signs in Baltimore and Ravens lose.

Tex goes to Boston and Ravens win.

Interesting question, huh?

As for my answer…

Well, let’s just say I think I’ll keep that one to myself for a while.
