    Re: 2013 is..



    I loved JOhnny Bench. I think he was drafted in the 3rd round wasn't he? Anyway The Os missed him.

    Palmer tells the story about the first time he faced Bench in the minors. Earl Weaver was his coach and the first
    time he ever spoke to Earl was when he came out to the mound and said no junk shit to Bench. Give him your
    fast ball and Palmer was young with about a 99 mph fast ball.

    But Palmer said Bench had a home run reputation even then and said Earl, I don't think it's a good idea to do that
    with Bench. Earl said just do what I tell you.

    Palmer did and Bench hit a home run.

    Jim said I never listened to Earl again.




    Bench was eccentric though. I read when his first wife divorced him she said he played pool with a buddy on their
    wedding night while she waited for him in bed. Nice guy. ILMAO

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.
    Because I've been going to Maryland games since I was old enough to walk. Academically, another school without prominent athletics met my needs better. But I still root for the Terps, and go to games when I can.

    And October
    So one win makes a year?? Sounds like desperation and reaching for some kind of hope. I guess that happens when the team is horrible for multiple seasons. Precisely why that is not a rivalry and never has been. Duke could care less who they lost to. Just another game to them. Meanwhile Terps fans celebrate like they won the title.

    Bench was picked #2. Bernie Carbo was #1 IIRC. Bench sure got a blast about wedding night. I heard it was playing ping pong all nite with a bunch of teammates.
    I want a Flacco jersey! Johnny Bench wore #5

    Hey, laugh all you want, we're one of the best football teams in FCS, and we had one of the best recruiting classes outside of the Big Six conferences in the country this past off-season. We've had a historic turnaround, and when we're postseason eligible this year, we'll have a pretty good shot at an NCAA bid. Who knows, maybe the next cinderella story.
