Rick Maese speaks the truth this morning…wonder if his press pass is in danger

April 25, 2007 | Drew Forrester

I highly recommend you read Rick Maese’s column from this morning’s edition of The Sun.

He highlights a lot of the issues I’ve been talking about as it relates to the O’s attendance and the effect it’s having on downtown businesses. 

You’ll learn a lot if you take 5 minutes to read the whole thing, I promise.

We’re doing another O’s related contest and had over 75 entrants this morning.  If you didn’t get in, don’t fret, you’re eligible to enter until 7:04 pm tonight (on-line only…at drew@wnst.net)

Here’s the contest…predict the O’s record over the next 20 games and, as a tiebreaker, guess the TOTAL attendance of the next two nights at home vs. Boston.

I say 8-12 with 52,301…but I’m not eligible for the prize. 

BTW, the prize will be four tickets to any baseball game played in Frederick, Bowie or Baltimore on Tuesday, May 22nd.  You make the choice (if you win), I’ll get you the tickets.  Fairly certain I’m not going to get a “cease and desist” with this one, but you never know.

Also, our 10-game contest that ended with yesterday’s loss to Oakland had Glen from Towson as a winner…he had everything exactly right.  He predicted the O’s would go 7-3 and score 57 runs!  Congrats, Glen!

Back with more later on.

I’ll be at the ballpark tonight, blogging from the press box.
