Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

May 06, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Peter Schmuck wrote something funny today. He wrote about how Orioles fans would have a chance to boo A-Rod when he returns to the Yankees this weekend.

My best guess is that no one cares enough about the Orioles at this point to brave the tens of thousands of Yankees fans to try to boo someone for using steroids.

But maybe I’m wrong. We all rallied around the chance to boo Mark Teixeira; but that was Opening Day. Is the return of the man Ray Bachman affectionately calls “man boobs” enough to motivate you as an Orioles fan to get out to Camden Yards this weekend?

I’m guessing it probably isn’t.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say……
