but wayward O did not come here today to make baltimore sun blingee ... though he still may. he came here to tell you a secret.
56 wins in 2005; 62 wins in 2006; 69 wins in 2007; and 75 wins in 2008. And all along the way they've made a few shrewd, mid-market type moves and developed some talent.
occasional pissing and moaning about ramon ramirez aside -- and we as Os fans know how precious good middle relief can be -- with additions of mike jacobs and coco crisp royale seems to have talent at every position, four decents starters -- all still on the upside -- and a talented closer.
The Royals. The Kansas City Royals.
Wayward O is going to tell you something right now. If Royale gets into the playoff mix in 09 -- sometimes known -- as the play9ff mix -- and team is flailing around as is its September custom, wayward O is changing name to Wayward Ro and buying Royals cap.
Maybe not moving to Kansas, but rest of trappings will be there! Including KC's theme song.

sorry about poor video quality! in fact do not EVEN WATCH VIDEO. who cares? much more important is that DARVIN HAM from the WUZZNarTZZ i mean WIZZNUTZZ has been digging around in VIRTUAL CRATES and he has found actual .mp3 of ORIOLES MAGIC THEME SONG ripped FROM ORIGINAL 45 VINYL!!!
Orioles vinyl ... feel it happen!
OMG-WTF-BBQ that FRENCH HORN INTRO is enough to make EDDIE MURRAY'S FRO stand on end!
download and enjoy and to one particular F.O.W.O. who suggested that there is NO NEW INFORMATION ON SITE, put that in your pipe and smoke it!! and put it in your ipOd -- or should wayward o say opOd -- and listen to it.
and to SUITE OWNERS, sorry there may not be any more MGD's in your FRIDGE. it's not my fault!!
and to MILWAUKEE BREWERS i worry a little about upcoming series but not too much.
and if you think that was a LUCKY DIG by darvin boy are you mistaken. and you have never been to see GOD SHAMMGOD'S MIXTAPE (not to be confused with TIM SHAMSTOPPARD and DON SHAMAASE) your home for all things MD/DC/VA sports oriented and many other nuggetzz to boot!
PS. and lastly to CATONSVILLE YOUTH RED SOX!! YOU RULE THOSE OTHER GUYS JUST LUCKED OUT ANY GIVEN DAY!!!!!!

ain't no use in thinkin' bout it, you'll just drive yourself insane
there comes a time for everything and the time has come for you
shut your mouth and get your ass on the plane
farewell, jay, and may the years be kind to you.

so Wayward O is happy to give you second installment of audiofile, featuring stephen malkmus' latest track, eponymously named....
it's a fine song with lots of guitars and HARBRINGERS OF PORTENTIOUS TRANSPIRATIONS. So let us have look at LYRICS (in italics) and take shot at ANALYZING MEANING:
you come on like gangbusters, laying it thick
arboreal Sleestack, lost in the sticks
it's warm for a witch trial. don't you agree?
cold are the hands that would ever touch me.
this verse is primarily about Peter G. Angelos, but also about how sometimes fans get false sense of hope about team during spring training.
you got the energy of a classic creep.
with sex vibe for miles and shark eyes asleep.
no intuition, no need to sleuth.
poor is the man who would sully my view.
it is very difficult for Wayward O to say what verse two is about. but he thinks it may have to do with Rick Dempsey.
a one-minute story is all that you are.
a song undeveloped, beyond the first bar.
for all of your hustle, what did you win?
woe is the man with the Cheshire Cat grin.
verse three is clearly a paean to new Manager.
you criticize life, you criticize pain
you criticize situations you've never been in
but dawn for the dilletantes will come soon enough
verse four is about how Melvin Mora feels after being thrown out trying to steal third with two outs.
the panic is leaking through every clear pore
your animus weakened, acetylene torch
so root for the crucifix on the skull full of rot
i'm in love with the people
i'm in love with a saint
i'm in love with a soldier from BALTIMORE!
this last verse has something to do with how the team tanks every august and how Halloween is a time for Crabtown to embrace SEASONAL CHEER instead of WORLD SERIES.
* from this fine, album to be released soon, which wayward O and you should purchase

So ... CONFOUNDING. So ... MYSTERIATING. So ... EPIC and yet UNDERSTATED! LIKE IF EDDIE MURRAY WERE SUBJECT OF CORMAC McCARTHY NOVEL ... wandering barren earth with MUTTON CHOP SIDEBURNS AKIMBO.
But Wayward O must ask: If team plays kids and finally put oldsters out to pasture and develops a core of YOUNG LOYALISTS, to ride into battle alongside YOUNG SAVIOR, would that be a LOST SEASoN? to wayward O's way of thinking that would in fact be a FOUND SEASON.
anyway, so to soothe speculative pain of LOST SEASON, Wayward O, feeling very fancy, is instituting a NEW OCCASIOnial feature on baseball blog, which will highlight CRABTOWN MUSIC for Os Fans. Here is INAUGURAL OFFERING...
"People don't realize what they about to do in this city..."* from here. please purchase immediately!
