-Don’t get me started on Peter Angelos’ comments that the Orioles would wait until 2011 to make a ‘free agent splash.’ Wait until your team gets better to improve??? That’s a solid philosophy.

-I will definitely check out the AC Milan-Chelsea game in July. I’m really interested in finding out how many tickets they expect to sell to this game.

Talk to you tomorrow.
