Orioles News on Reimold, Adam Duritz
Obviously I don't usually write about the Baltimore Orioles, but in light of the fact that I'll be spending much of today in Maryland DMV offices, I'll make an exception with two itesm.
1) The Orioles are mounting a campaign to back Nolan Reimold for AL Rookie of the Year. They've sent these arguments, in glossy style, to all the BBWAA writers with a vote. You may or may not be one of those writers, but this is what the campaign looks like.
2) Adam Duritz, of Counting Crows fame, was supposed to be an Orioles fan. He recently chatted with Christopher Porter of Express Night Out fame, and since the O's didn't figure into the story, the great Mr. Porter sent along the relevant quotes.
"I'm a bigger Celtics fan than I am a Warriors fan because I lived in Boston when I was a kid," Duritz said. "That's my first sports memory ever, the Celtics. I remember things from when I was really young, 3 or 4, and I remember K.C. and Russell those guys -- that team. Late '60s, early '70s. My second is being at Fenway. I was supposed to be an Orioles fan because I was born in Baltimore, but we lived in Boston. It was a doubleheader, I think; I was completely confused about who I should be rooting for. I want to root for the Orioles, I just can't keep straight who's who. But I love that old bird on the cap. Can we go back to the old bird? It was such a cool bird....The best logo, the best symbol ever. It looks so cool on the caps -- and they've sucked ever since they changed it."
(And since he's a Warriors fan, you're wondering what he thinks about Gilbert Arenas, right? "Furious the Warriors let him go," Duritz told Porter. "I think he's one of the most exciting players I've ever watched....How the hell did they let him go?")
