Pitbull. Thanks for the fun week.
But seriously, I want to name a few.
I wish Primetime would post more here. I know he shows up when Ravens season begins. But he's probably the most knowledgable football guy on this board. He comes with quality instead of quantity and it's an insta-like everytime because it's just so damn good. In addition to Mackus who seems like he has the salary cap breakdowns at the ready. I laugh when other posters challenge him on that stuff. Lol.
I think Steve Birrer and myself should take over day to day operations of the Orioles. I don't think we have disagreed on one thing O's related, ever. Don't worry, you can have the month off when the World Cup comes around and I'm the only one not watching.
Met Rob Habib in person for the first time last weekend when we covered Ravens practice. Great guy, professional in that media setting where it can feel a little stuffy or uptight. He is a personal trainer and wanted to seek an interview with the Ravens Strength and Conditioning Coach. This being the day after the Maryland "Toxic Culture" story broke. Given his background, the recency, the relevance of the story in the area, it would make for a great piece to get the Ravens reaction to it, insight into their protocols. Hopefully since he's met with Patrick Gleason (Ravens PR Director) they can arrange that. Something that would set us apart because local media isn't asking those questions. It's all about this 4th string TE, or this 6th round rookie, etc...
bmore_ken has the best avatar here and although new, has chimed in with some good quick hits. Keep it coming.
Shack, when I lost my dad, suggested I write a little about him, the good times, share some stories. After a few days of grieving, writing a post here about my dad that made me re-live in my head some of the proud moments we had put a smile on my face for the first time in days. Was one of the best things I could have done at that point that I never would have thought of. Huge difference in feeling, in a good way, putting words in print, out loud, rather than being alone with your thoughts.
A lot of guys here have reached out with sound advice when life throws you a curveball and it's always welcomed. Stoner, Weber, Ricker, Bacon, Shields, Epic, Strain...probably missing a few.
Pedro is great at lightening the mood when things get heated. "It's sports talk on the internet". So true.
The Epic and Mackus like this
