  1. I make a home version with bourbon, bitters, triple sec, and a cherry. The triple sec takes the place of the simple syrup (sugar as you say) and orange peel.
  2. I said this in another thread but it fits here...In a season that is already on the brink of collapse, with 7 inning double headers and runners on second in extra innings that resembles beer league softball, this would have been the time to start testing out computer aided strike zones. But alas, I'm just glad to have baseball back, in whatever form we have.
  3. I don't think anyone is saying they are out to get the O's, but when the ump misses obvious calls and then the pitcher has to come back with a teed up homerun ball, its frustrating. That's all.

  4. I'm not saying its good for business. I'm saying it brings the community together, all people rooting for one team as apposed to arguing with each other.
  5. As an Orioles fan, this would rule. But following your logic and being a little more fair to the Marlins, what if they played their home games at Georgia Tech? That would put them within a few miles of the Braves and make trips easy for teams flying into Atlanta. Maybe the Rays could take one of our minor league stadiums, or else another large college team in the Atlanta area?
  6. Agreed. Plus, sports bring communities together. With all of the angst in America right now, one could argue professional sports are more crucial than a single restaurant up the street. (not that I am advocating shutting any of them down either. We have been a carry out family to help these places out.)
  7. Except that players and anyone else working around the teams have the option of not working. No one is making anyone do anything here.
  8. He's hitting the ball hard and his extra muscle gain has him back where he can make a nice easy swing carry to within a foot of the top of the monster in left center. Not sure why he lost so much weight the past two years, but the added muscle will certainly help this season. I'm still pulling for him to have a nice bounce back, and with Mancini out and Mountcastle still not with the club, its not like he's blocking anyone.
  9. Not allowed. Too much spit might fly out of your mouth. 😉
  10. Agree completely. This is such a dumb rule.
  11. With our luck as Orioles fans, we'll be 30-20 in mid September and leading the WC race, and COVID will resurface and wipe out the season.
  12. Um....I've been doing this for the past 20 years! lol
  13. Damn. Add in alcoholic and I'd swear you're looking in my family room window! 😲
  14. Thanks CoC. You beat me to it.
