    Use this thread for all other Maryland(or surrounding area) non football sports talk (Terps, Wiz, Orioles etc)


    The MD/VA/DC area has alot of representation in the NCAA tourney this year. Team with the best chance to win the NC from this area is Georgetown IMO. But you should all already know I am going to be riding with UMD til the end. FEAR THE TURTLE!

    Call me a homer but I have 6 of the 7 local teams making the sweet 16 imagine that, only left out GW cause they aren't good.

        What!?! GW is too good!
        But Maryland, Georgetown, and ODU should all do good. I find ODU really underated, despite losing to G Mason this year in the tourny

              I love the O's and the Terps.

              O's: Prediction: Losing Season, but I could be wrong.

              Terps Prediction: After beating Florida in the Sweet 16, they run out of steam and lose to Wisconsin in the Elite 8.

              Georgetown: National Champions. I'm not THAT much of a Georgetown fan, but they have the best team in the tourney (only challenger, Ohio State). Notice I say TEAM! Teamwork is the key, and they have it.

                Well lets take our local sports just a little farther what do you guys think about our Local High School Basketball and Football seasons for next year ? This Basketball season shaped up very nicely but its been a few years since we had a really great football team in the area that could compete outside the local area. Are any of you guys involved with the local youth leagues or High Schools to help develop the talent in the area ? Maybe one day we will be talking about the next Juan Dixon in Basketball or the next Tommy Polley in Football.

                  Its hard being a Orioles fan aint it? I think we will finish 4th in hte division again, I have hopes of a .500 record. Our Pitching staff has improved some and we picked up guys like Aubrey Huff who should help our hitting. We always pick up mediocre players who will have little impact on our record. We need to spend a good amount of money and land some high caliber players, but we never do. GOD DAMN YOU PETER ANGELOS!

                    i think people are underestimating our spending spree on relief pitchers... i think it will have a profound affect on the season

                      That only matters if the starters can step up, if the guys in the bullpen have to start comin into games in the 4th inning every day/night they'll get worn down and useless as well. That being said I think the O's could maybe get to 500 baseball this year, but we still got some major holes such as who is gonna play 1b, and who is your DH. And don't tell me Jay Gibbons for either one of those positions cause Jay Gibbons will be injured and out for the year by the middle oy May.

                        Look dammit mark in down cause its going to happen: Orioles in the playoffs in 2007! Thats right I said it! Bedard, Loewen, Cabreras are going to have lights out years and with Chris Ray in the end closing its all she wrote. I'm tired of losing and so are they so its time to make a statement and this is the year!

                        So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                          Love your optimism, but doubt the realistic possibility that we can compete with the Yanks and Sox, or even the Jays.

                              Dammit I'm serious about the O's. Leo Mazzone has got the starters for a whole spring training and no interruption for the World Baseball Classic and it will be a major difference! Besides the Red Sox and Yankees will be concerned about each other and BAM we sneak in under the radar and thats all she wrote. Sam Perlozzo is going to get them ready and pushing to old school tactics about hit and runs and base stealing. The Oriole Way is coming back and it about damn time!
