    Good & Evil in a Great Sports Town

    by AKtravelers Updated Feb 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Baltimore is a city full of passionate sports fans. If you visit here, it's good to know who are the heros and who are the devils in the minds of Baltimore fans. Knowing this could improve the reception you get from the denizens of local sports fans.
    The Gods: Cal Ripken Jr., Johnny Unitas, Eddie Murray, Brooks Robinson, Alan Ameche, Earl Weaver, Ray Lewis.
    The Devils: Robert Irsay (for moving the Colts to Indianapolis), Jeffrey Maier (yes, that 12-year-old Yankees fan, for turning a fly out into a Derek Jeter home run that won game 2 of the 1996 ALCS), Armando Bemitez (for choking in big games), John Elway (for spurning Baltimore after the Colts drafted him), Raphael Palmeiro (for getting his 3000th hit and then testing positive for steroids a week later) and Peter Angelos (for being a bad micro-managing owner).
    Even though Art Modell moved the Browns to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1995, he wouldn't be considered a hero here because most Baltimore fans, still feeling the pain of the Colts' move, felt a little guilty about the way the Ravens ended up here.
    Anyway, if you want to make friends instantly with a Baltimore sports fan, say something bad about Robert Irsay and you're golden. People cheered his death unapologetically!
