It’s a Happy Tuesday for me because Shawn Michaels retired last night…and I won’t confirm nor deny whether I was a bit overly emotional…
…I’m sorry, I need a minute here.
Let’s see what everyone has to say…
1. WNST.net’s Drew Forrester says Steelers event at North Harford High School ‘not okay’
Here’s a list of other things that are “not okay”…
5-GET THE POINT?
OF COURSE bringing the Pittsburgh Steelers to Harford County ISN’T OKAY! Anyone who thinks otherwise is INSANE!
(Edit from GMC: Attention Pittsburgh Steelers fans-your opinion doesn’t matter to me. We all KNOW you think it’s okay. It’s like the guy who roots for the Steelers and writes for that “b” paper that tried having an opinion on the Colts move out of Baltimore-it doesn’t MATTER what you think about it.)
As I said this morning, maybe next year the folks up at North Harford High School should consider renaming Pylesville Road to “Jeffrey Maier Boulevard” next spring.
2. The AP’s David Ginsburg says Guthrie roughed up as Orioles fell to Yankees
As I said last night on Twitter (follow us @WNST), do you think there’s any chance the Orioles could trade Jeremy Guthrie to the Diamondbacks in exchange for one of these FORMER Birds?
‘Cause I’d take either Rodrigo Lopez OR Kris Benson from the D-Backs at this point!
Jeremy Guthrie has been….ummm….NOT GOOD. I don’t think he has a pedigree to think that he will just necessarily bounce bank and be a top of the rotation type of pitcher who we can count on.
But I’ll be hoping…
3. MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli says Uehara expects to start season on DL
And that’s just too bad.
Since I don’t really have too much more to add here, I think I’m going to through up a few more pictures of Anna Benson. You can thank me later.
If only the O’s would have been any good when she was here…
Before I move on from the Orioles; Hall of Fame 3B Mike Schmidt joined Drew Forrester this morning on “The Comcast Morning Show.” If you missed it, make sure you head over to the Audio Vault at WNST.net to check it out. He told Drew Miguel Tejada would have “no problem” moving to third base.
Drew also chatted with Harford County Executive David Craig (who told us that Harford County was “Ravens Country”), Aegis columnist Randy McRoberts, Former Maryland Jockey Club President Joe DeFrancis, Former Ole Miss DE and Ravens Draft target Greg Hardy. Head over to the Audio Vault to check it out.
5. National Football Post’s Aaron Wilson says Syracuse WR Mike Williams, Arizona LB Vuna Tuihalamaka visited Owings Mills Monday
Holy crap. HOW THE HELL DO YOU PRONOUNCE THAT?!?!?
This makes Obafemi Ayanbadejo look like an elementary school name!
For the record, Tuihalamaka is 6’2″, 220 and had a HELL of a Pro Day in Tucson. Does that mean he’ll be a great player at the NFL level? Of course not. Does it mean that all of us in the radio business will be in trouble if he gets picked? It certainly does.
6. BaltimoreRavens.com’s Mike Duffy says Gaither officially reported to offseason program Monday
And we’re glad to have him back. Either he’ll help the team try to win a Super Bowl as the Left Tackle, or he’ll help the team try to win a Super Bowl by being dealt for a high pick in the NFL Draft.
The point is, the guy is going to help the Ravens try to win a Super Bowl. That’s all I can ask for.
7. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora says Redskins could be interested in making deal for Jared Gaither
And if they’re willing to part with their (very high) 2nd round pick; I would certainly assume that the Ravens would be willing to make that deal. It would give them the 37th pick in the Draft, which is a coveted position.
I’m not convinced myself that the Ravens are hotly pursuing this. I think they’d make the deal, but I don’t think they’re banging down the Skins’ door to try to make it happen.
Me personally, I’m trying to make a deal for Noureen Dewulf, the girlfriend of Sabres goalie and US Olympic hero Ryan Miller…
8. Washington Post says Greivis Vasquez named to AP All-American 2nd team
Which is a tremendous honor, and certainly is worth celebrating.
That being said-while EVERYONE agrees that John Wall, Evan Turner and Wes Johnson belonged on the 1st team; are DeMarcus Cousins and Scottie Reynolds REALLY 1st team All-Americans???
I’d say the “Vivacious Venezuelan” should have been about one team higher.
9. Inside Lacrosse says Maryland 4th, Loyola 12th, Johns Hopkins 16th in new Top 20 poll
Seeing as how I don’t think the Blue Jays have much of a chance to beat North Carolina this weekend, there’s a real chance that Dave Pietramala’s squad will be completely outside of the Top 20 next week.
Should we just go ahead and wave the white flag to New York and New Jersey at this point?
10. Baltimore Blast Official Site says Blast eliminated from MISL playoffs by Monterrey La Raza in OT
Which means it is now officially OFFICIALLY baseball season in Baltimore…I guess.
Nestor went to 1st Mariner Arena three straight nights (Shogun Fights, Baltimore Mariners, Blast) and decided to document it…
The term “glutton for punishment” comes to mind.
And finally, I leave you with this.
It has bothered me for a long time that there isn’t an indoor lacrosse team here in Baltimore. I know the arena stinks, but there was a team in PHOENIX when I lived out there! This market can ABSOLUTELY get 5,000 people out to games!
I’m bothered MORE that there isn’t an indoor lacrosse team in Baltimore when I see what happened at the recent Boston Blazers/Philadelphia Wings game…
Why can’t we have that?!?!?!?
Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
