dear jOe

Dear Mr. Joe Angel.

We know it's difficult. We know Team stinks. We know they're softer than FRED MANFRA's Silk Shirts as they rub against hairy, tanned forearms! We know Team's payroll is shrinking faster than Luke Scott's batting average....

But Wayward O is fan of yours and even once pudated your WIKIPEDIA PAGE!

So Wayward O is worried about you. He says: "Fear not."

You are not only one in grumpy mood. For example, Mods on Camden Chat have been on BANNING SPREE RECENTLY.

DON'T EVEN SAY P-Word.*

They are GRUMPY TOO! Heck ... WAYWARD O got a little pissy a few posts back...

And Manager is DEFINITELY ON EDGE...



Even the LOBOTOMISTIC Kevin Cowherd recently realized sometimes Yankee Fans show up at Yard. Joe. It's true. An Os ticket plus AMTRAK is STILL comparable to $300 seat at Yankee Bandbox. Also there are lots of FEDERAL WORKERS in DC AREA FROM NEW YORK AND BOSTON.

IT's JUST Way Of Things! Andy MacPhail is doing best he CAN!

ALSO IT CUTS BOTH WAYS!!! For Example: THERE ARE O'S FANS IN BIG APPLE TOO!

LOOK AT GUY ON NYC CHANNEL 4 NONSTOP:


Status: Likely Os Fan.

Oh sure he was talking about PASSING of Sen. Kennedy. But look at HEAD GEAR!!

See Joe? All hope is not lost. Team has agents of influence everywhere. Patient eyes peering out onto New York's streets, waiting for inevitable rise back to power!

AND LOOK AT HOROSCOPE FROM VILLAGE VOICE


Open Wider, Think FATTER!

O SEEKER

See Joe? We have to come up with some CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO HELP TEAM COMPETE AGAINST RICH FAT YANKEES and BEARDED LUMBERJACK RED SOX.

First, Wayward O suggests CREATIVE AD DEAL.....


Give MELMOSTIC ONE CORPORATE SPONSOR!

And Replicate NICK MARKAKIS in GENETIC MACHINE so HE Can Play ALL POSITIONS!**

And GIVE ADAM JONES DIVINE HEALING POWERS FOR ANKLE, Back, Etc...


zOmg!!

Anyway, that would be start.

Have Nice OFFDAY JOEMANG!

Sincerely,
El O De Wayward

** Wayward O does not blog about Nicky Poo too often. What is to say? Nicky, someday you will taste October. Wayward O swears it!!!

bOnanza!

terry crowley is redeemed. not just as result of last night's homerfest, but because he apparently

INSPIRED YOUNG SAVIOR

on monday as well.

also there was so much melmOsity in tuesday night/wednesday morning's game!! especially when our melmodramatic third baseman ROLLED OVER HOME PLATE IN 11th with TYING RUN!! Look at the pain! And the suffering:


melmOdrama!

and how many times must aubrey huff come up huge? he has carried team on back the last couple of ... well really since season began.

and how many times will you see a 4-2-5 double play? alex rodriguez said after game the brian roberts was "lucky" to snag his hot shot to second base. maybe, but he made the play. you know who didn't make a play? derek jeter. he was asleep between second and third and didn't get over in time.

as gary thorne said after alex cintron's winning hit, "an amazing night."


also we have a special diaspOra post to add to day's amazing news!

gear choice: looks like an orange ornithologically correct team cap
status: possible Os fan, though searches show he wears many hats

diaspOra, part 6

names: unknown
location: tha bee-dub, aka I-295, on way to game
status: Os fans
gear of choice: video camera, packed cooler
quote: 'this is going on youtube! [maniacal laughter]'


wayward O says: this is a very special diaspora post. one day I-295 will also be re-named RUNWAY OF DESTINY as team prepares to reclaim glory after lost season rebuilding phase is complete. traffic jams like this one will be commonplace as adoring fans stream northward from NATS COUNTRY to see Orioles, aka, THEIR FIRST LOVE, in action versus OTHER BASEBALL TEAMS.

I took a movie-making class in school as an elective, and then I was playing around with a program, and i decided to put all my Nick pics to use! So I did it and then thought it would be cool to post it on youtube. Im soo happy people are likin it!"
Wayward O Says: With fans like this, we must never lose hOpe! After Wayward O posted her Youtube paean to the Young Savior on site (see below) he received many inquiries -- including some from HIGH PLACES -- regarding talented person who produced video! So the Wayward O sent message via the Youtubes and discovered young superfan coming up in INTERNET ERA.

Gear Choice: pen, paper
Wayward O Says: in case yOu missed it -- yes. you missed it. wayward O says YEAH this letter printed in saturday's wash post:

Thousands of Post readers have been Orioles fans for years and still attend many
games. And for many Post readers who live in Maryland, including those in Howard and Anne Arundel counties, the Orioles are the home team, with Baltimore closer than Washington.

Please reconsider your decision to not dedicate one of your reporters to covering the Orioles' home and away games.

paul kirby. just another stout Os fan with a high tolerance for agony and no tolerance for tom boswell and his pinheaded sports biases. paul kirby ... you are not alOne.

diaspOra, part 2

Name: Bumper sticker on back of sport-utility vehicle.

Location: 56th St., NYC

Quote: Honk, honk!

Shwag Choice: This is a solid, classic bumper sticker featuring a modern version of the "smiling but still kind of mad" cartoon bird logo, who is sporting the "classic" ornithologically correct cap.

Wayward O Says: Thanks to Gordon Donovan for the snappy snapshot. It's nice to see at least somebody uptown in Manhattan has a little bit of sense. By the way, Gordon is what you might call a "Met Fan," as evidenced by this shot:

Meet the man behind 'Meet the Mess': Gordon on the Shea Jumbotron!That's him on the JumbOtron... he's a graphic designer so this could be a photo shop but Wayward O highly doubts he would engage in such chicanery when it comes to hallowed halls of Shea!

diaspOra, part. 1

Name: Dude at San Franscico airport deli counter

Status: Os fan

Quote: 'I was supposed to play for the Dodgers...' Wayward O wasn't sure what that meant but it sounded sad.

Cap Choice: New-style Os cap, fitted with flattened brim. Ears not tucked in.

Wayward O Says: It was a great week of skiing and hanging out in San Fantastic and Lake Tahoe but it was hard to get Os info along the way. ESPN is awful damn stingy with the Os highlights. But the Hyatt Casino had the Os-Royals extra-inning game on the satellite on Thursday night. Wayward O watched the last three innings as he participated in a Texas Hold 'Em Tourney and watching the game made him relaxed and a better player. He finished 13th out of 40 players. It was neat to see a suffering fellow fan at the airport gate; it was a sign that Wayward O's ten-day blogging lapse is over!!!
