Baltimore and Maryland Sports Fandom

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to learn how many posters here are not only Orioles fans, but also fans of the Ravens and Maryland Terrapins. The Ravens and O's are the only two major pro sports franchises, so I imagine quite a few fans are like me in that they root for the Ravens.  However, I wonder if the number of posters that like another NFL team is more than half of our posters? I imagine the Redskins are well-represented as well. 

I also love the Terps, specifically Men's FB & BB, but imagine there are even more posters that have a different college that they support.  I could be wrong about that... just a hunch. 

Where do you stand? Thanks.

I've been a COB since 1971, when I was in first grade.

Those are the teams/franchises that I root for (Colts/Orioles/Bullets.)

O's, Ravens, Terps and Caps

 

I graduated from UMD, but I was a big Terps fan before I ever thought I would go to school there.  Was an almost equally big Hoyas fan as a kid, but I have a hard time caring much about college sports anymore.  I used to go to Baltimore Colts games as a kid, then I was a big Redskins fan until the Ravens came to town.  Now I don't care about the Skins -- kind of enjoy them losing in the Dan Snyder era actually.  Try to root for the Nats sometimes, but since I've lived in LA a long time I'm also kind of a Dodgers and now a Rams fan too.  A bit of an LA Kings fan too.

Os, Ravens (was Colts for years, then boycotted NFL for years), Terps, and Wizards since they were Baltimore Bullets.

Once a Terp, always a Terp.   🐢  Raised on Redskins, fan of Ravens by osmosis from living in the Baltimore area for almost 20 years.  Caps fan.  Zero interest in the NBA for quite a while.

Ride or die O’s and Navy. Ravens as an AFC stand in. Used to be big on Terps basketball before leaving ACC and Gary retiring but now just generally root for UMD sports due to state loyalty more than anything else.

I root for the Orioles and the Buffalo Bills.  I'll root for the Ravens in the playoffs if the Bills are out of them.

My college alma mater plays at the Division III level, so I don't have a strong preference for any Division I team.

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
