Pop Quiz, Baseball Fans!
Which is more unbelievable …
a) The Orioles won last night!
It’s a win!
b) I found these snow booties in my size. On sale!
Adorable and On Sale!
c) I’m on the front page of today’s Baltimore Sun sports page.
Trick Question …
They are all unbelievable. But, true.
Here’s the link to The Baltimore Sun profile. Read About Me!
And, thank you Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker …
“Jackie Howell has managed to find the elusive sweet spot between passionately caring about the Orioles without being unhinged by their repeated failings.”
“Without being unhinged.” Remember that, people. Not unhinged.
And, for this description of this website …
“It’s akin to the old ‘Car Talk’ show on National Public Radio that was part auto mechanics and part philosophy and life counseling.”
(If you’d like to donate your old car to me, and help out your local public radio station, just let me know!)
Jeff also mentions a photo of me meditating in an Orioles sweater. This photo exists and it was not a set up for the story. It is the best, softest, cushiest sweater ever. I bought it during the freezing two-hour rain delay at Camden Yards before the Orioles lost to the Yankees in the 2012 post-season. It is the most comfy unlucky sweater ever.
Hey, the Orioles won!
