And equally sad, only No. 1 is going to (maybe) be on the next Orioles team that makes the playoffs.

Read Ball Four at 14. First encounter with irreverence and insubordination in written form. And learned that married men sleeping with other women was a thing. RIP, Jim Bouton.

This is a full-length, major-studio motion picture. Premiere it in LA. 😂

Hey Meredith, which do you think would take longer for us: Getting a spot in the reserved lot or finding Malaysia flight 370?😆

Students can learn sports journalism by watching great pros at work. They also can learn by watching the other end of the spectrum. A brief (and snide!) blog post from me:

I expect to be alive for only 30 or so more years so that will work very nicely!

A 16 beat a 1. Blues won the Cup. This completes my sports bucket list. Guess I’ll have to find something new to do. Maybe those things that I think some people call books.

I wish to be included! Saw my first Blues game in 1967. Now that I think about it, I think that was Don on the other end of the row.

Proposal: They play each other for the Cup in 2020 and losers’ names come off it.

Life was so much less stressful when the Blues went out in the 1st round. Boring, but less stressful.

I’ve been waiting since literally 1968 to see what I just saw. The St. Louis Blues won a Stanley Cup finals game. Of course, there’s something else I’ve never seen.

Lacey, the skeptics (polite term) should visit my sports writing class in the UA JCM Department. 80% women and they’re smart as hell about sports.

Dan, none of these guys are being evaluated for long term. The O’s’ next playoff team will have NO ONE from the current team. Maybe Bundy. (Mancini will be traded.) The only positives that matter are the ones in the minors.

I disagree that NHL statements constitute fully “owning it.” Still, this article is outstanding journalism. Thank you, JR.
