Boy, I’ve been slackin’

September 24, 2009

I haven’t posted anything in 10 months. I’ve been a bad Baltimoron. I will redouble my efforts. That should get me up to two posts a year at that rate 🙂   Couple of quick things: 1) Get free ice cream today at Cold Stone Creamery and Carvel locations. Here’s a link to my dcfud.com […]

Restaurant Advice in Baltimore

December 17, 2008

I’m getting awfully rusty in my Baltimoronism. My friends Stef and Kavitha are making a pilgrimidge from NoVA/DC to B-more for crabcakes and crabs, under the caveat that they be in the city. True Baltimorons know that there are crabcake places, crab places, and seldom do the two mix. The two best I can think […]

Don’t Park Here on Game Day

December 17, 2008

The Hyatt at the Inner Harbor might be the worst parking garage I’ve ever been to…and considering I’ve been in a parking garage in Las Vegas that was scheduled for demolition due to decomposing concrete and instability, that’s saying something. Why was the Hyatt’s parking lot so bad? Well, let’s see – after yet-another sold […]

Strippers Need Meat

April 1, 2008

As a Baltimoron in DC, I am often asked for advice by my Virginian neighbors on where to eat in Charm City. For crabcakes, I suggest G&M in the `burbs, Faidley’s in the city. For steaks, I usually grunt and point at Morton’s for the chain steak house, Jordan’s for the charm of Ellicott City […]

Interesting Quiz from the Post

December 27, 2007

I took a shot at the WashingtonPost.com quiz for which candidate best suits our personal beliefs. The Post hid the candidates’ faces, but left their words. I took the quiz to see which words best suit my beliefs. I took both the Democratic and the Republican tests, and was slightly surprised by my outcome. I […]

Baltimoron in D.C.

December 21, 2007

This is the logical off-shoot of my Blogger site, OBPOPCULTREF. That site was initially started to track weird OBscure POP CULTure REFerences, but quickly became a lame attempt at a book deal or writing gig. Damn you Jessica Cutler for letting me dream. Since that went over about as well as shit-flavored ice cream (the […]

My state is richer than yours!

September 11, 2007

The Baltimore Sun reported it a couple of weeks ago, and I meant to write something bitter, sarcastic and snobby about it, but I was too busy rolling in greenbacks to do it.

Getting harder to be an O’s fan…

September 2, 2007

…no-hit last night by Clay Buchholz, in his second major league start. One more week until the Ravens’ season begins. It’s only a week. I can wait that long, right? Right?

30 runs?

August 23, 2007

Rough, rough day to be an O’s fan… When I saw the score “TEX 27 BAL 3” on the TV, I thought the Ravens were getting crushed by the Texans. The fact that there was no football game on TV left me saddened, and shocked. It’s a good thing Wild Bill didn’t live long enough […]

O Noes! Sammy Perlozzo Fired

June 18, 2007

The picture of Sam is from happier days, when he was announced as the new manager of the O’s. His dream job. And, like many dreams, you wake up to reality before the dream is over. ESPN.com, The Baltimore Sun – they’re all saying the O’s just fired manager Sam Perlozzo. Andy MacPhail is coming […]
