There’s an old Violent Femmes song that contains the line, “Do you know what it’s like to hate/When it’s way down deep inside?”
Sports fans in Baltimore know. And they’ll remind you every chance they get.
Baltimore is actually a pretty friendly city, despite the FBI spoiling the party this week with the news that we’re the nation’s second most dangerous city. (We prefer “murder-friendly.”)
Fans here will be your friends for life. But once you cross those fans, you’re dead to them.

OK, now you’re ready. Go.
How many’d you get? Send your answers to psmith at bugsandcranks dot com. Sure, you can use this here Inter-Net and cheat. But, just like your high school math teacher said, you’re only cheating yourself. What do you win? Hey, this ain’t the Indoor Four. There will be no gift cards to big box electronics stores.
I’ll tell you what you’ll win: a random Orioles baseball card from my collection. I’ll close my eyes, reach into the O’s pile and pull one out for you. Gimme your mailing addy and I’ll get it to you.
Rules? Duh. It’s obvious. Most right answers. Watch this space soon for quiz answers and winners.
Huge tip of the orange-and-black to my pal Mahoney, king of the Baltimore SportsGrudge.
