Misery loves company: Orioles drilled by Blue Jays, 11-3 at Preparation H Park at Camden Yards.
That makes me feel a little better. Thanks! :)

Maybe my hatred of the birds isn't as intense as you guys but nothing baseball related makes me feel any better about the official beat down the braves provided the Nats.

For me, it's more ownership than the Oreos team.    But they're joined at the hip I guess.

No sir, born and raised in MI living in PA near the Senators. 

Still no other teams loss eases the burden of being absolutely killed by the braves.  No beat down of the birds eases the absolute torture of the Nats.  Saying it does is just self-serving and fake.

I don't see how you're qualified to tell other people what emotions they get out of sports and which emotions are fake.

LOL @ "torture" btw. It's April and we're a game out. It's not like the Braves are going to keep up this head to head streak forever.

I was sleep deprived this week because of those losses. Does that qualify as torture? Or is that more like enhanced interrogation? :)

Yea I guess if fans take solace in what's happening to Baltimore to ease the pain of getting swept by the braves I am out of touch.

Imagine the Tigers moved to Kansas City and took all the Tigers' records, etc. with them ..  and changed the name of the team.   Another franchise came to Detroit and left 10 years later.       And then over the next 33 years, in one form or another, the Indians kept a new team out of Detroit claiming that Detroit wasn't a baseball town and Detroit was part of the Inidans territory anyway.    Any misery in Baltimore is a cause for celebration in DC.     :)

PS   And hell, I was a Pirates fan through most of those times.    I can imagine how the natives feel.

At least the Bucs beat the Blo's in two world series in that time frame!

I live in Maryland, but if the Pirates played the Os in the WS, I'd root for the Bucs.

And I don't really hate the Os.

...and most of the Tigers' crucial TV revenue is taken away and given to the Indians. Good explanation. I guess you have to be here to fully understand the situation between the two franchises.

When the expansion Senators took the short bus to Texas I was 10 and a growing baseball fan. That theft ended my love of baseball for many years. I started to get back into baseball when I started to drink beer! Coincidence or cause and effect? Well anyway cold beers in the stands at Memorial in Honsville was fun and Cal came up and then the O's won the WS. It still wasn't MY team and I still remembered the beat downs the birds would routinely lay on the Senators but it was MLB fairly close to home.
When DevilOs began to tank the product on the field and removed the "Baltimore" from the franchise name in order to keep MLB out of DC it ended my affection for the O's. Firing Jon Miller, the best voice in baseball, and losing DJ after two trips to the ALCS was the topper. Now I will never give another dollar of my money to DevilOs. Not at any level, not my hometown Frederick Keys, not the Baysox, not at Camden. If a Nats franchise is visiting I might go but somebody else is buying the tix, brews, and hot dogs.

 F angelos! :whip:
