Dear Baltimore

For those of you who follow the NFL you are probably aware the Indianapolis Colts will travel to Baltimore for a playoff game next weekend.

Already we are hearing the stories about how Indianapolis "stole" the Colts in the dark of night ...blah, blah, blah.

In one more year the Colts will have been in Indy as long as they were in Baltimore. It is time to let it go.

Seriously, except for a few idiot fans and mostly the media, this quit being a story back in the 1980's. How many of the jackasses throwing eggs at the Colts team bus, and expressing the angst (while wearing Ravens purple) were even born in 1984 when the team moved? You know, the team FEW in Baltimore supported until they left?  The one the City was trying to take via eminent domain? The one that played in a half-empty crumbling stadium each week.

Baltimore fans it is time to support the team you wooed from Cleveland (irony alert) and get over a slight so old even the Godfather would forget it.

LOL!! I remember when the Colts came to Indy. I was never a fan of them, but my Dad stepped right into being one their biggest fans. There was a Christmas I recall Grandpa, Dad and I all getting matching Colts shirts & caps.

I remember hearing people kvetching about L.A. stealing the Dodgers from Brooklyn right as they got good all the way into the early 1980's, so don't expect this to go away. Same happened in Oakland when the Raiders spent that time in L.A.

Be careful, though. I hear that Dayton wants its Triangles back, and they're closer to you.

I want to go to Lucas Stadium one day to sit in the seat my state tax dollars paid for.

Let's not forget that the Ravens were once known as the Browns. Oh, I see you didn't. Never mind.

Fuck Baltimore, anyway. 'Tis a silly, crime-ridden, filthy place.
