O’s-Zone Watch: 27 May 2012

Don’t sweat the loss, O’s fans… you’re gonna get to see this for years to come!

I wouldn’t say the Orioles are “beginning to struggle” and I don’t think they are “about to plummet back to the basement”.  We’re still 10 games over .500.  Only three other teams in the entire league can say the same.  I think it’s mostly a case of a young, overachieving team still finding its rhythm.  Besides, they got a lot going on down by the Harbor.

Friday night’s 8-2 win over the Royals was played in front of a home crowd of 28,954.  The incredible part about that statement is that 11,000 tickets were sold at the stadium in the two hours before game time.  Yeah, looks like even the stubborn non-believers are starting to scratch the itch… Continue reading

O’s-Zone Watch: 22 May 2012

Text Showdown V

**Exciting game last night as the LA Lakers tried to fight off the OKC Thunder.  LA was in the lead by as much as 13 with 8 minutes to go before a familiar scene unfolded: rally time by the losing team.  Yup, Kevin Durant hit ANOTHER game-winner and OKC is up 3-1.  Josh (LRDP’s resident Laker fan) and Cronise covered it live.

Text Showdown IV

Celtics come crashing down as Philly ties the series.

**It looked like the Celtics-Sixers game was gonna be a blowout.  But things changed suddenly and the tension never let up.  LRDP took it to Twitter.  The following transcript is a pieced together conversation over Twitter during the end of the game.  Plus a few aftermath comments.
