Most people who live in the area are pretty big Redskins fans.

    If anything, I think that Towson should be the official college team of Baltimore.
    I've never understood why people feel the need to be a fan of the team that's closest to where they live, or a only a school where they went to.

    Your post just answered your own question. There are no hard and fast rules about who you should root for and why. Perhaps someone is a fan of a player and chooses to root for the team despite never having set foot on its campus. Perhaps you root for a school because your father graduated from there. There are many reasons and many scenarios to consider. This applies to both the collegiate and professional level.

    And October
    Im sorry but I've been so focused on Ravens and the playoffs and SB I forgot about the O's.

    They made a deal for someone?

    Can you fill me in on the details. I thought I heard on radio O's just robbed someone again
    via trade?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe it's because Maryland is the only team around that plays against teams on a national championship level all season long. They are a big D1 school. Except for Loyola or Hopkins in lacrosse, Baltimore simply doesn't have the universities that are going to be playing against the big boys.

    Maryland might be in the DC area, but it has plenty of appeal for people all over the state.

    I root for MD because it is Maryland's flagship university within our state university system. Besides, what the hell am I going to root for from Salisbury? D3 lax?

    John Harbaugh, Cal Ripken, Steve Biciotti, Ed Reed and Torrey Smith have all attended MD basketball games the last year or two...they had to make the enormous 30 mile trek down to College Park.

    And there's this pro-Redskin propaganda from UMD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaMg6kzR140

    i have to tell you a story about brooks. i went to the national geograhic building to meet brooks and get him to sign the book about baseball that was just published by NG. this was probably 2004 or 2005. i had 2 questions for brooks of which one was, what did lee may say to you when he came to play for the orioles? brooks leaned back and laughed and said "lee may told me if it wasn't for lee may no one would have ever heard of brooks robinson". it was lee that made that incredible put out from the third base coaches box.

    brooks had huge hands. i really don't think the guy needed a glove.

    Thanks, man.

    Your boy Lee May dubbed that name on him. Brooks stole a couple of doubles from him down the line.

    Funny thing was when he retired and Doug DeCinces replaced him. He didn't guard the line as close as Brooks
    did. Good thing for us he came up a couple of years after that series-lol.

    Here's some pics of those dives from Brooks. Even Frank Robinson said I used to stand in the outfield as a fan and just
    marvel at the plays Brooks made time and time again. Here's some of them in that great series.

    Sparky Anderson said I hope that car they give him as an extra big glove box. He had huge hands.
