RIP Wild Bill Hagy

from the Baltimore Sun:

The Orioles organization is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of "Wild Bill" Hagy. While leading cheers from "The Roar from 34" at Memorial Stadium, Wild Bill became a Baltimore institution. He was one of the great characters of the Baltimore sports landscape and was a true die-hard Orioles fan, supporting the club year in and year out. He will be missed by everyone who knew him and by everyone for whom he led the "O-R-I-O-L-E-S" cheer. All of us in the Orioles organization extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

A moment of silence will be held in his memory before tonight's Orioles-Rangers game. William G. Hagy was 68 years old.

Wings' new sweater

from the freep

thankfully, no real break from tradition. I can live with the "c" on the other side of the jersey.

NHL TV Schedule is out


What a surprise.

Lots of Penguins games on NBC.

Futbol season is here.

The (insert Sponsor's name here) Premier League starts tomorrow. i would have tried to write a preview, but I've been out of town.

sadly, I think ManU will win again. Too many injuries for Chelsea will put them behind the eight-ball before the season is six weeks old.

Last year, I picked DerbyCounty as my (sponsor's name) Championship team and now they are up in the Premier League. Well, for now. Most pundits think they are the odds on favorite to be relegated. I'd like to disagree, but it's hard to argue.

Go Toffees.
