Captain,

Are you from the Twin Cities? 

Yep -- a Minneapolis resident since fall of '96 (excluding one year in a suburb right at the northern point where the two major cities touch that's so tiny most Twin Citians have never heard of it), and a lifelong Minnesotan (minus a couple years at the U of Northern Iowa, so I'm also a Panther).

None of us want to see me walking across a stage--well oiled--in a speedo. None of us. Leave that to our former governors or whatever.

OK, in that case, I'll allow your bashing of my beloved Baltimore Orioles. 

Kirby Puckett was one of my favorite non-Orioles players growing up.

Yankees home opener vs. Astros got postponed.  Will try again tomorrow @1:05pm.  Fat chance.  In Ulster (about 90 miles north of New York City) it started snowing again just after midnight.  It's still snowing, and about to become our biggest snow storm of the year, about 4 inches so far.  It's bad down in the City as well, a rain/snow mix.  It's going to be in 30's all week.  They hope it gets to 39 degrees by game-time on the 5th.  That's still pretty cold for baseball.

Baseball in the snow and rain is not fun like football in the snow and rain.

The Orioles were supposed to start at 3:05 Eastern Time.  The first pitch is being delayed.  It's supposed to rain in Baltimore for the next 4-5 hours. 

Tomorrow will be clear, but cold.  Ah, April baseball. 
the ice field.  Yankees lose 5th consecutive opening day game...  the temp was a chilly 36 degrees.  But.  48,000 fans showed up!

Reading the ongoing thread dealing with people with alleged "secret knowledge" of things reminded me of a controversial event from 1997.

In August 1997 I traveled to Baltimore to see 3 Orioles games - one with the A's, and 2 with the Mariners. The A's game was strange - arriving in town I heard on local radio that the Public Address Announcer for the Orioles had passed away. I'm blocking on his name, but in going to previous games the year before he'd always end an announcement with "THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUU!"  That night there were no announcements at all, in tribute to him.

The next night was where the "controversy' took place. The place was packed, fans around me had traveled from Boston, New Jersey and other places to see this important matchup. Randy Johnson was to be the starting pitcher for the Mariners. The problem that came up was with the lighting.  Half the lights were out for some reason and couldn't be fixed. We all waited impatiently, then finally got the word that the game would be postponed, with a split doubleheader the next day.

Oh, the rumor mill started, and kept on for years. Cal Ripken was still piling up games with the consecutive games streak. something must have happened where he couldn't be at the game, and that's why the Orioles manipulated the lighting.  One story had Cal getting hurt after beating his wife, Kelly.  The other story was that Kelly beat Cal up.

Well, I knew that was so much hogwash.  How? I was at the game, and Cal was there. He was on the field before the scheduled start time, taking pictures with representatives of the milk industry (he was a paid spokesperson for them). Cal looked healthy to me. But for years afterward I would have to post on boards debunking that crazy rumor that would not go away.

Yanks are coming to Detroit for the Tigers opener on Friday. I believe it's supposed to warm up to 45 degrees!

But for years afterward I would have to post on boards debunking that crazy rumor that would not go away.

I was at the silent game in 1997.  Rex Barney was the PA announcer's name.  He was the voice of Memorial Stadium / Camden Yards for over 20 years when he passed.  He also briefly pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers and threw a no-hitter. 

He's written two books - an autobiography called Thank Youuu, and one of Orioles Memories called.......Orioles Memories.  Really nice guy. 

That story about that Cal Ripken game still pops up now and again.  There's different variations of the urban legend, one involving an affair Kelly had with Kevin Costner.  All BS obviously.

Sorry Capt,

I think my Orioles got some revenge for when your Twins came to Camden Yards last August and ruined our season with a four game sweep.
