How to be a Baltimore Sports Fan: Issue One

Posted on 23 April 2014 by WNST Staff

Baltimore sports fans are irrational, unrealistic, unforgiving, and hard-to-fool.  Baltimore sports fans are unlike any other sports fans, because they’re–as Toyota used to say–“simply the best.”

Every Wednesday, over the next 40-years or so, I’m going to author a semi-regular feature entitled “How to be a Baltimore Sports Fan.”  The idea behind this stems back to a conversation I had with some college students during my time as an English professor at a local community college.

The conversation went something like this:

Me:  “This season might be another ‘Why Not’ year.”

Student #1:  “Why not what?”

Me:  The “Why Not” season in 1989; the year the O’s went from worst to ‘almost’ first.

Student #2:  I was born in 1992.

Me:  Don’t you know any Baltimore history?

Student #3:  Ain’t this English class?

Me:  It is.  But you’re clearly struggling with speaking the Queen’s language–and you’re from Baltimore.

Student #3:  How you know dat?

Me:  I can tell by your accent.  I’m from Dundalk.  I could pick out a Bal-murr accent halfway around the world in a room full of people screaming Chinese expletives.

Alas, it’s this conversation that has sparked this column.  Some people–local youth, sheltered stepchildren, non-local-Ivy-Leaguers-of-the-“local media”–need some help on understanding what it means to be a Baltimore sports fan.

Without further ado.

How to be a Baltimore Sports Fan…

#1 Be Irrational: Fire Dave Wallace and release the entire starting rotation.

Miguel Gonzalez went five-and-two-thirds last night.  Wei Yin Chen went five the night before.  Ubaldo Jimenez hurled five-and-a-third on Sunday.  All three pitchers topped the 100 pitch mark.  It’s impossible, yes impossible, to win more than you lose when your starting rotation consistently throws a full-game worth of pitches at the half-way point in the game.

Show me a team who has a rotation that consistently gives way in the 6th and I’ll show you a sub-.500 record.

Perhaps we’re starting to see why Dave Wallace has been away from the Major Leagues since 2007.  Even though he’s still been around baseball, you have to wonder if his tactics and his style are working, some seven years later.

Think about it, what were you doing seven years ago?  Me, I was finishing college and chasing girls around Canton and Fed Hill.  If my wife ditched me tomorrow and I jumped right back into the bar scene, I’d be as effective as water-logged firewood.

 

#2 Be Unrealistic: The Wizards are 2-0 in the NBA Playoffs, build an arena and give Baltimore the ball!

The Wizards look legit.

Down in the fourth-quarter of both games in Chicago, the Wiz–coincidentally, that’s my name too–have come out on top and carry a 2-0 series lead back to the Mid-Atlantic region–Baltimore sports fans refuse to use the word that describes the area in which Congress meets to discuss their vacation plans and fantasy football teams.

All this Wizards’ success means that Baltimore should definitely build a new arena and focus on attracting an NBA team.

 

#3 Be Unforgiving:  Jonathan Schoop doesn’t belong in the Big Leagues.

He can hit.  He’s got some talent.  But he doesn’t understand the game of baseball and desperately needs to return to a slower-pace at Norfolk.

 

#4 Be Hard-To-Fool:  The Ravens aren’t looking for character guys, they’re looking for cheap talent.

Like it or not, the Baltimore Ravens have shifted their focus.  There was a time when the organization steered clear of troubled players–think of all the receivers they passed on during a time when the roster was devoid of anyone with play-making ability.  Brandon Marshall was a head-case, Chad Ochocinco-Martinez-Wong-Abdullah-Kazamakos-Johnson-Smith was a jerk, and so on.

If the flirtation with Rolando McClain proved anything, it’s that the Ravens have given in when it comes to looking past a players’ off-the-field issues or personal flaws.

Maybe it’s just the state of the NFL and society, but if you told me that this organization would have allowed itself to be yo-yoed around and attached to the negative press that Rolando McClain created, I’d have bet you’d first see Peter Angelos doing the Wild Bill O-R-I-O-L-E-S cheer atop the Orioles’ dugout in game seven of the World Series.

 

#5 Be The Best:  Ubaldo Jimenez needs some love.

This Friday night, in Baltimore, Jimenez will make his fifth start as an Oriole.  It’ll come against a spry and aggressive Kansas City lineup.  He’s ranged from horrendous to decent thus far.  If you’re at the Yard on Friday night, get behind Baltimore’s $50Million man.  Give him some love.

But if he gets chased after giving up more than five runs in less than five innings, boo him like he’s the lovechild of Billy Cundiff and Mark Teixeira

NBA Odds

“After looking at the rest of the schedule for the Philadelphia 76ers, it is possible that they will not be favored in any games for the rest of the regular season. We currently have them projected as small underdogs for their home game against Utah on Saturday. Seeing as Utah is probably one of the weaker teams left on their schedule, and they are still not favorites to win, we think the Sixers may be barking the rest of the season.”

College Football

 

“It was a stressful night as we were pretty much all in on FSU, needing them to win the game because of our tremendous exposure on our BCS Future Odds and on the Auburn money-line, and I have to say I slept well.  However, there’s no time to rest as I spent all morning calculating next year’s College Football Championship odds. It has been more of a challenge this time around due to some key players still undecided on the NFL Draft and also the new playoff system which is still a little obscure. Therefore, some teams who would normally stand little chance may be able to sneak in. I expect these odds to move over the next few days quite a bit based on those factors.”

Bovada improves Capitals’ Stanley Cup odds to 25/1

Posted on 03 December 2013 by WNST Staff

“Some may think that the Nets who have been a complete disappointment up to this point and even the Knicks for that matter should have longer odds to win it all, but this early in the season as despite bad as they are, the Nets and Knicks are only two and four games out of the playoffs respectively. With the talent these teams have, we have to be careful how much we over-adjust this early in the season.”

Bovada gives Wizards 100/1 odds to win NBA title

Posted on 08 October 2013 by WNST Staff

“As MLB is winding down we have seen increased activity on our NBA future odds mainly for the Championship. While Miami is an overwhelming favorite once again for the third straight year entering the season, with such short odds (2/1) we don’t see too much money on them at this point. Teams like the Clippers (Down from 14-1 to 9-1), the Bulls (Down from 10-1 to 8-1) and the Pacers (Down from 12-1 to 10-1) have been getting bet heavily, while a team like the aged Spurs have drifted from 10-1 to 14-1 and are hardly taking any action.”

Wizards sign veteran F Harrington

Posted on 14 August 2013 by WNST Staff

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed forward Al Harrington. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.

“Al’s all-around game and reputation as a leader make him a solid fit with our team,” said Grunfeld. “He will give us additional depth and experience in the frontcourt, the ability to stretch defenses and another proven veteran in the locker room.”

In 15 seasons with Indiana, Atlanta, Golden State, New York, Denver and Orlando, Harrington has appeared in 947 career regular season games (445 starts) while averaging 13.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 29.0 minutes per contest. He has shot .445 (4,946-11,111) from the field, .352 (943-2,678) from three-point range and recorded 103 career double-doubles. During the 2011-12 season, Harrington averaged 14.2 points and 6.1 rebounds in 64 games with Denver. The former first round pick has played in 48 career postseason games, averaging 8.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per contest. Harrington’s most productive season came during the 2008-09 campaign where he averaged a career-best 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds in 73 games with Golden State (5) and New York (68). He was originally selected by Indiana with the 25th overall pick in the 1998 NBA Draft out of St. Patrick’s High School in Elizabeth, N.J.

Harrington was waived by Orlando on August 2, 2013. The Magic originally acquired the veteran forward from Denver on August 10, 2012, as part of a four-team, 12-player deal. He played in 10 games with the Magic last season averaging 5.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 11.9 minutes per contest after missing the first 54 games of the season recovering from a right knee meniscus repair and ensuing staph infection.

Wizards, Knicks announced for Baltimore Arena preseason game

Professional Basketball Returns to the Baltimore Arena

August 7, 2013

Baltimore, MD – Baltimore Arena/SMG general manager Frank Remesch and the Honorable Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Mayor of the city of Baltimore, announced today that the Washington Wizards will face the New York Knicks in the inaugural Baltimore Basketball Classic on Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the Baltimore Arena.

“Baltimore is excited to host the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks for the 50-year anniversary of the Baltimore Bullets. Baltimore has the best sports fans and we are thrilled to have professional basketball return to Baltimore,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. “Basketball legends that have graced our city like Wes Unseld and Earl “The Pearl” Monroe are a clear testament to the rich history we are so proud of. Now, we are honored to welcome these teams to our city as we continue to make sports history.”

The 2013-14 season will mark the 50th anniversary of the Bullets’ move to Baltimore as well as the 50th anniversary of the Baltimore Arena. The team called Charm City beginning in 1963, playing at the newly-constructed Baltimore Civic Center and featuring future Hall of Famers Walt Bellamy and Gus Johnson. Fellow Hall of Famers Earl Monroe (1967-71), Wes Unseld (1968-73) and Elvin Hayes (1972-73) also were part of the Baltimore franchise before the team relocated to Landover, Md., prior to the 1973-74 season.

“I am incredibly appreciative of Mr. Leonsis and Wizards Senior VP/Chief Marketing Officer Joe Dupriest for recognizing the significance of the Baltimore market and its historical ties to the Washington Wizards,” said Remesch. “As the team and the building both celebrate our golden anniversaries, it is only fitting that the celebration begins here in Baltimore.”

The inaugural Baltimore Basketball Classic will mark the first time the Wizards have returned to Charm City since hosting a preseason game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 23, 1999.

“The city of Baltimore has a storied basketball tradition that includes playing an integral role in the history of our franchise,” said Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld. “We’re looking forward to bringing the team back in October and getting the opportunity to play in front of our fans in the Baltimore area.”

The game will feature two of the city’s most distinguished former high school players in Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Wizards assistant coach Sam Cassell. Anthony was named Baltimore’s County Player of the Year, All-Metropolitan Player of the Year and Baltimore Catholic League Player of the Year as a junior at Towson Catholic in 2001 while Cassell was named Baltimore Player of the Year as a senior at Dunbar in 1988.

Ticket information for the Baltimore Basketball Classic will be released at a later date. Wizards full season ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase seats in advance of tickets going on sale to the general public.

The Baltimore Arena is Baltimore’s largest indoor venue and entertainment facility and has long been considered an anchor that contributed to the growth and prosperity of the city. The arena opened in 1962 and was the cornerstone of the Baltimore Inner Harbor redevelopment. It hosts an average of 130 events per year and more than 800,000 guests come through the turnstiles annually.
