Alex Ovechkin and Cal Ripken's Great 8 partnership

"Did you choose the number 8?" Cal Ripken asked Alex Ovechkin on Wednesday night. "Um, yeah," Ovechkin replied. "I didn't," Ripken said. "It was just given to me. Thought it worked pretty well, though." Um, yeah. For two decades, Ripken was the No. 8 in Washington sports completely defining...

Orioles ratings spiking in D.C.

(By Nick Wass - AP) I can honestly say that I haven't intentionally watched more than a half-inning of any Orioles game at one sitting this season. Not out of hostility or anything, but the team has been bad, and I don't see their current iteration as a Washington...

Orioles fan's epic streaking adventure

I generally avoid Orioles news, but this one seems to nicely encapsulate the current state of baseball to our immediate North. Or Northeast. In Philadelphia, they tase their streakers. In Baltimore, they languidly allow them to flit about the basepaths, from the field to the stands and back, on...

D.C.'s 2010 baseball bobbleheads

I don't really write about Baltimore baseball teams, but Charm City is technically part of this geographic area, and so Wednesday marks an important date for all of us. It's the beginning of the 2010 baseball bobblehead season. Go crazy. I mentioned a few key bobblehead dates a year...

Did Lugo kick dirt on Willingham?

If you saw Josh Willingham hit the walk-off home run in the 10th inning of the rubber game between the Orioles and the Nats, you likely watched the completion of his home run trot. Nothing better than seeing the dogpile at home plate, plus for once Rob Dibble wasn't really...

Larry King used to work Caps games

(Courtesy Comcast SportsNet) New to me: Larry King used to be part of the broadcast team for Home Team Sports's coverage of the Caps and Orioles. Like, that's really new to me. I had no idea until Al Koken mentioned it in passing the other day when we were...
