Rugby Union For EVER

England for the Grand Slam 2003 with Ireland = Second - or the other way round - as Ireland are my second favourites OK I can live with that , Just! Mothers day glued to the TV while offspring try to cook dinner!

Rugby = a game played by men with odd shaped balls <><>

I agree, Tony. I've been a baseball fan since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. Nothing like a game at the "park", peanuts, popcorn, beer, and hometown heroes to worship. Opening day here in Baltimore is March 31 and we are awaiting the day with great anticipation. It's a game of great skill and a lot of patience.

And the first batter's up. He steps up to the plate and eyes the pitcher. The pitcher takes the sign from the catcher and shrugs it off...he'd rather throw a knuckler. The windup, the pitch... SWING! "Strike one!", You can hear the ump say as spectators watch the animation of his arms. The batter shakes his head in disbelief and the manager charges from the dugout to argue the call....

No, NO, Tony! The Orioles. We are trying to rebuild the team, so this year will be tough for us, but who knows....? I'll always think of you when watching the Indians now, though. Funny how things like a web site can change your perspective!

Next time I'm at the ballpark, I'll drink a beer for you, if you like, or whatever... You like beer?

patty patty pattyyyyyyyyy come on now the only thing the Orioles have going for them is the fact that they have a ex indian for a manager

True, as of now. I like Ol' Mike Hargrove, too! .... He's so low key, though, isn't he??hahaha

Who do YOU have, Tony? Joggle my mind, won't you?

If only we had the teams of the past. Of course, you are too young to rmember the best, most glorious years.... We have an owner who hasn't done what he should for the team roster lately ($$$$$). Many fans are a bit angry about that. New front office managment put in place over the winter has given us hope, but not very much for this season. But, there's always the future. All I know is that I HATE the Yankees! True to form for most Oriole fans, as they HATE us.

Patty~
