Live From the O's Protest, Part III

The nostalgia train rolls on, with an extended "Sell to Rip-ken" chant, an "El-rod Hen-dricks" chant, a "Da-vey John-son" chant, a "Jo-on Mil-ler" chant, a "Pa-at Gil-lick" chant, an "Ea-rl Wea-ver" chant and several more rousing renditions of "Ed-die, "Ed-die." (I don't believe I've ever heard a chant to a departed general manager before.)

Plus some chants of "Let's Go Ra-vens." Plus the wave. Plus more "Peter Sucks" chants. Plus a "Bye Bye Pe-ter" chant. Plus a half-hearted "Ca-ner-Med-ley" chant. Plus a few Detroit people offering obligatory "Fi-re Mil-len" chants. Plus one guy next to me tried to start a "B.J. Ry-an" chant and a "Bra-dy Ander-son" chant.

Plus some guy just came up to me and showed me a photo of him and The Bird holding a "Free the Birds" sign, together. He promised to e-mail it to me. The Bird, as usual, had that goofy grin, but he was clearly asking to be freed. Once I put that puppy up on the blog, I wouldn't be at all surprised if that particular Bird gets freed, figuratively speaking.

Plus why are these people cheering so much for a game that they're going to vacate in the next 10 minutes? (5:08 ETD.) Well, I guess I know why. It has something to do with Bohemians, and not the artistic sort.

I'm listening to the Tigers broadcast, and their radio crew was impressed with the level of organization for this protest and the chants. They also noted that folks walked out on cue even though the O's were in the middle of a rally.

What's the deal with chanting Caner-Medley? He was awful.

God I hate Baltimore. Even though Angelos drove me away from baseball some years ago I still think they deserve each other.
Ravens Cheers? Morons.
The Wire and Homocide have been way too easy on that city.
