Go ahead, put money in his pocket, continue to let him win. Then next year he'll spend money on some 2nd rate free agent, you will re-evaluate their winning chances, buy a 10 game package, and they will finish below .500 for the 11th straight year.
Why don't you buy a full season package for 4 tickets, that way you can show that you are a complete idiot.
I went last year and had the best time at an O's game I have had in years. I am glad Free the Birds 2 is planned, but I am probably not going this year. They obviously dont care at all about their fans so I will lay on my couch after work and watch MNF. Apathy has set in. But I hope this causes some commotion and embarrassment for that jackass Angelos.
Nestor can certainly be a gasbag, but last year's protest did at least bring national media attention to the fact that Orioles fans hate their owner, and want him to go away. And best of all, like Galen said, it irritated Angelos so much that he felt compelled to respond in the media, sounding like a 12 year old boy who got his feelings hurt because he's not as popular as the guy next door.
I was also at an Orioles/Red Sox game recently, and it really was an embarrassment. When Ortiz crushed a home run in the first inning, it looked like about half of the sold-out crowd stood and cheered. HALF! It was a little like the early Ravens days when Steelers fans came here in droves, only much, much, much worse.
But it's hard to blame the fans when the team sucks, year after year, and the owner boasts on an annual basis that they're "heading in the right direction" or some other nonsense like that.
Since Im not from Baltimore this could be totally wrong but I do feel that way about Nestor. He is talked about by many people on these boards. Even his articles from his web site get talked about. They either hate him or love him, either way the biggest complaint about him was trying to listen to him on a clear channel.Quote:
I heard a story from a WNST host that Nestor said at a party "When people think of Baltimore sports broadcasters, they think of me."
Anyway he is still better than Anita "have I ever told you I played Football too?" Marks and Damon "I am brilliant because I coach high school football and you are an idiot because you are not me" Yaffe.
I used to be the guy at every opening day and now I get free tickets and give them away everytime.
Angelos has ruined all of baseball for me making summers very long.
