Swish it around and spit it out, pfffft.  You're not a snob.  Puff that chest out and stand tall.

At least don't google her on a work computer. 😉 Very NSFW. 

I’d never heard of her. So I did go to her Twitter feed. A bit of a show off, isn’t she? 

 

I do take that back. Was she the one who was an O’s beat reporter for awhile but admitted she was a Yankee fan?

If by beat reporter you mean adult film star then yes.

So...My computer and desk sit at the corner of a room where everyone can see what I am doing.  My wife and 4 teenagers chuckle at me all the time for how much time I spend with my OH friends....

 

Being the internet wiz that I am, and being a well read father of 4 teenagers who listens to all types of music, (though I prefer classic folk, blues and blue grass best)  I was quite shocked to catch an obvious social reference and not know who either of these guys were.  And I follow a fairly wide range of folks on twitter and so I just jumped over to my twitter account and type Mia Khalifa Dan Clark.

Well... for those who are curious like this faithful OH fan and for those who fearlessly plunge into spaces thinking that all we we do and discuss here is safe...let me just say the following to you all...

The Mrs...may not accept my hours of OH readership ever again.  And my son just asked if it would be ok if he got his own membership.

And am I the only person who did not know the you could open twitter and look at porn?

I must follow the most boring people in the world.  Yes Weams.....I follow you.  Ill be checking to see if you posted this there too.

We now rejoin our regular scheduled program!

😓

Make sure to let your son know the benefits of a plus membership.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
