I don't hate you two, just...

Oh the hell with it. It doesn't matter anyway. My reputation is locked in and shall forever be.

Not that it matters that much the way the O's are playing.

Sorry they couldn't do it...freaking M's.

I am, silly woman. my heart will forever beat Maroon & Gold. The Steelers are the "family" team, which I really don't give a hoot about, but, they were my Gramps's team, so will always have a spot in my heart for them. Carry on now that you are "found" (ell o ell)

ps: explains though why Eric hates me so....

Ahh I get that :)

And I have no idea...sometimes he hates me too.

O's left at least one man on base every single inning tonight. Season continues to slip away.

Well the Skins/Steelers and especially Chucky have been entertaining - alas, I must switch over to see my M's. I know they're in the "it doesn't matter anymore" point in their season but I don't care. I love 'em cheeky

Most of those of us who like to follow our team no matter how they're doing from year to year don't really care. Football is fun to watch, regardless. Some of us like to keep an eye on the position battles throughout training camp, and preseason. It's not awful - it's a pretty important part of the season actually cheeky

I despise ESPN, but I love football and will be watching at least part of the game tonight. Should be interesting - I like to see the depth other teams have as well.

"and preseason. It's not awful-it's a pretty important part of the season actually"
indeed it is! I would imagine there are a roster full of players that think this is very important. I also think I wouldn't want to be in the locker room of the losing team after the game.

Frustrating night for the Orioles with runners in scoring position.

Interception! TD Skins!

Who cares if it's preseason? I do. Preseason is awful.

Also, it's ESPN doing a Washington game. ESPN has been trying to fan the flames of a "controversy" between RGIII and Shanahan. It's going to be like that for 3 1/2 hours.
