I have spent my entire 30 years living in Maryland and I love everything about this city. Despite the bad reputation the city has, Baltimore will always be a special place to me and I love living here. There is nothing better then Sunday afternoons at M&T Bank Stadium and summer nights at Camden Yards when the Yard is packed. You can find me all over the city so don't hesitate to share your opinion of me good or bad. Who knows, if you see me out maybe I will buy you a Natty Boh.

Lets go Ravens and Lets go O's!!! Follow me on Twitter at @MRomanell.

Orioles Could Give the Greatest Gift this Sports Fan has Ever Received

Orioles Could Give the Greatest Gift this Sports Fan has Ever Received

For the first 13 years of my life, I only had one team in my hometown to root for, the Baltimore Orioles. They had Cal Ripken, they brought back Eddie Murray, they had the legendary Chuck Thompson and Jon Miller, and they were one of the most storied franchises in all of sports. It was safe to say I was a diehard Orioles fan.

Adam Jones: Baltimore is Lucky to Have Him

Adam Jones: Baltimore is Lucky to Have Him

Since being acquired by the Orioles in 2008, Jones has won three gold gloves and has now been an All-Star four times. In addition, he has 156 home runs (hitting more than 30 homers in each of the last two seasons) and it was Adam Jones, not Chris Davis, who was the leader in the Orioles playoff run in 2012.

Chris Tillman: Charm City’s Ace

Chris Tillman: Charm City’s Ace

Baseball, more so than any other sport, is a game where numbers matter. Batting average, home runs, RBI, wins, and losses all define a player’s worth and perceived value. Pitching is often considered the most important part of baseball, and the one that separates the average teams from World Series champions.

Orioles 2014 Season Preview

Orioles 2014 Season Preview

The offseason started bad as the O’s made no significant moves, traded Jim Johnson and didn’t resign a few other players. For a while it looked like the O’s would make no improvements heading into the 2014 season; however, last month that all changed as the O’s acquired Ubaldo Jimenez to help the starting rotation and Nelson Cruz to stabilize the lineup.

Dear Orioles, Please Don’t Let Us Down

Dear Orioles, Please Don’t Let Us Down

It was the band Extreme that sang the lyrics “there’s a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you” and, as a Baltimore sports fan, those words rang especially true to me. Despite all the success the Ravens had experienced, there was always something missing: Baltimore Orioles winning baseball

Changes on the Horizon for the Ravens

Changes on the Horizon for the Ravens

The Ravens missed the playoffs for the first time in six years and now there are a lot of personnel questions surrounding them this offseason. The Ravens have a lot of needs to address in order to improve the team and the salary cap could lead to cutting some notable players who have been with the franchise for a long time.

Baltimoreans, Why Not Towson?

Baltimoreans, Why Not Towson?

Many Marylanders believe there are three “professional” sports teams in the state: the Ravens, the Orioles and the University of Maryland. Many consider the University of Maryland to be the college that all Marylanders call their own, regardless if they went to school there or not. I grew up as a diehard Terps basketball fan myself, and still am to this day, however, I attended Towson University.
