    Baltimore: Sports are a Religion

    Baltimore residents really get into their professional sports teams -- apparently more than their religions, if you check the adjacent photo. Local athletes like Johnny Unitas and Cal Ripken Jr. are icons, and the day the Colts moved to Indianapolis is still infamous even though the Ravens are here now (most locals were very conflicted about stealing Cleveland's team, but are envious of how Cleveland got to keep the team name, colors and records). People cheered when Bob Irsay, the Colts owner, died. As for the Orioles, times have been tough since the late 1990's, making team owner Peter Angelos one of the least favorite people in town.
