You're kidding, right? Boswell beat the drum for baseball in DC non-stop for years and years, with much more influence than Phil Wood.

It is possible to like and follow the Orioles professionally while still working to bring baseball back to DC.

Not sure how far back you go in this area but in the 1980's/90's Boswell was the biggest Orioles cheerleader in this area (apart possibly from George Will after the latter deserted the Cubs) - he was a thunderous endorser of Edward Bennett Williams'* concept of a 'regional team', practically kissed the ground Cal Ripken Jr walked on, and for him Preparation H Park at Camden Yards was somewhere between St Peter's Basilica, York Minster and Petronas Towers in terms of architectural awesomeness...absolutely sickening after a while. Only when it looked increasingly certain that the Expos were relocating here and the Post began beating the drums for baseball's return (after all their years of support for the Orioles) did he change his tune...he's been the company man through and through.




*WHY IS HE STILL HONOURED AT NATIONALS PARK (on the Hall of Stars roster)??? May as well put Bob Short on there while we're at it.
