Ravens fans vs. Orioles fans – are we two birds of a different feather?

first_imgIt goes without saying that Baltimore isn’t quite yet embracing this 2012 version of Baltimore Orioles pennant fever. No matter how dramatic the victories or how unlikely this late August run for postseason glory seems, nothing about The Birds has moved the sports fans of Maryland.Even into the great beyond via the long reach of MASN – not to mention the reach into your pockets every month like a public utility – for whatever reason people aren’t coming back in droves to give King Peter Angelos their money to watch the likes of Adam Jones, Matt Wieters, Nick Markakis and even boy wonder Manny Machado, who has been worth the price of admission alone this week.Oh, I know I’m being “Negative Nestor” by even writing this blog when the Orioles are winning baseball games and on the verge of a sweep of the hated Boston Red Sox. But every time the TV cameras pan the more than half-empty stadium, I can’t help but thinking the same thing you’re thinking: “I wonder why people aren’t going to Camden Yards to support this winning team?”Yeah, we all thought Camden Yards would be packed once the Orioles started winning. And as the team closes a 10-game homestand tonight in full control of a wild card berth and still within striking distance of the New York Yankees, a true “pennant fever” atmosphere has yet to emerge in Baltimore.It seems that a few months of prosperity hasn’t wiped out 14 years of bad vibes, bad baseball, steroid needles, lies from the owner and the emergence of the Washington Nationals as the regional team with marketing legs and, dare we say, “Natitude.”And here’s where we’ll piss off both side of the Baltimore fence.I have one question for you: “Are you excited about the Baltimore Ravens’ upcoming season?”My gut is that you just yelled, “YES!”My gut also says that your neighbor is excited, your cousins, your co-workers, the folks in your social group – wherever your friends and loved ones reside — they’re ready to don purple and are counting down the minutes until the 7 p.m. kickoff on Monday, Sept. 10 vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.I’m not sure when it became sort of fashionable to only support one of the two teams in Baltimore and perhaps for the younger generation there has never been a good time to embrace the Orioles. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m ready for Ravens’ season and that my love for the purple guys has superseded my spirit and energy for the Orioles. But I do love them both. And I will support them both equally for what it means for Baltimore to have a winning sports team and a chance to hang red, white and blue bunting here in October.And, somehow during this emergence of the purple birds of Baltimore since 1996, this weird kind of divide has occurred here in the Charm City where some folks only have enough “love” – if not dollars and time and energy – for one of the two teams.Do you know people who love the Orioles and have no use for football or the Ravens? Almost to the point where they root against the purple birds in football season?I do.And, conversely, from what I can tell there are a myriad of people everywhere around town who are fervent Baltimore Ravens fans and have long-since given up following the Orioles on a nightly basis, even now that the team on the field is representative of the community’s desire for hard work, overachieving and beating the Yankees and Red Sox.I know many, many people who have purple “Man Caves” – an entire kingdom and closets dedicated to all things Baltimore Ravens. There are whole stores like The Raven Zone dedicated to selling merchandise year-round.I don’t know anyone who has a basement that is an homage to the Orioles these days, despite the fact that you get 162 chances to enjoy games vs. just 16 that count.I also admit that the amount of hours necessary to follow the Orioles is extraordinary. It’s a lifestyle commitment to watch four hours of baseball six nights a week for six months. It’s almost like a full-time job if you’re going to vest into MLB fandom.And certainly this isn’t a new phenomenon for sports teams anywhere in America. It seems that there’s plenty of love for all four sports teams in places like Boston, Philadelphia, etc. where the seasons and the reasons all seem to blur together into a full calendar of activity and passion.But it might be time to ask, “Where’s the emotional investment for Baltimore fans?”Is it possible that you only have room in your heart — or wallet — for one successful local team?last_img read more

Massive fire that killed 12 started by child playing with stove

first_imgIt’s the largest loss of life from a fire in New York City, other than the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack, in more than a quarter century.‘This loss is unprecedented’The blaze broke out in the brick building on Prospect Avenue in the Bronx’s Belmont neighborhood at around 7 p.m. Eastern Time, forcing residents fleeing the flames out into the bitter cold, many without coats.Seven adults and five children died from the fire, including five who weren’t able to evacuate the burning building. Another four people who were critically injured in the blaze and hospitalized “are seriously fighting for their lives,” the fire commissioner said.“Last night’s tragic fire, other than 9/11, was the worst loss of life from a fire in our city in almost 28 years,” Nigro told reporters. “This loss is unprecedented.”‘We may lose others as well’Firefighters arrived on the scene within minutes, with more than 160 of them braving the frigid temperatures to battle the flames, quelling them completely by about 10 p.m. Eastern Time, according to the city fire department..The instability of the charred building has not allowed firefighters to make a full sweep of the building yet for any more fatalities.“The search of the building continues so we know that, even though it’s horrible to report 12 are dead already, we may lose others as well,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference Thursday night.At least one person on every floor of the building was killed, according to city officials. Five people were pronounced dead on the scene, and seven later died in area hospitals.“I came out through the window. Yeah, there was smoke everywhere. I couldn’t see the door. The door was … I couldn’t see the door. Was covered in smoke already,” Matthew Igbinetion, a resident of the building, told ABC station WABC-TV.Children among the deadAmong the children who died from the fire were three young girls ages 1, 2 and 7 as well as a boy whose age has yet to be released, according to the New York City Police Department.“They were burned, even little kids on the stretchers, burned,” a resident of the building told WABC-TV in New York City.The seven adults killed include three women ages 19, 37 and 63.One family is still looking for a missing son, according to WABC-TV.The fire is the city’s deadliest, excluding the Sept. 11 attacks, since the fire at the Happy Land nightclub in the Bronx in March 1990, which killed 87 people.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico FDNY (NEW YORK) — A massive apartment fire that killed at least 12 people — including a 1-year-old girl found with her mother in a bathtub — was sparked by a small child playing with a stove, city officials said.Making matters worse, city officials said, was that when the family fled the apartment they left the door open, allowing the flames to shoot up the stairwell.“It took the fire so quickly upstairs, people had little time to react,” New York City Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said at a press conference Friday morning. “Open stairs act as chimneys.”It was sparked by a 3-year-old boy playing with a stove on the first floor. At least 12 people killed, including seven adults and five children. Relatedcenter_img The boy’s mother fled with her children, and left the door open to the burning apartment. The open door allowed the flames to quickly spread up the stairwell to the rest of the building.last_img read more
