The Baltimore Blahs

It's February 22nd. We just got six inches of snow. The Terps are headed for an NIT appearance, the NFL is headed for a potential work stoppage and Orioles baseball is still a month and a half away.

Anyone else have the Baltimore blahs like me?

Time has healed some of the wounds I suffered when the Ravens choked away a the AFC Championship in Baltimore, but I'm still very much ticked off about it even though the Steelers lost in the Super Bowl.

Times like these it would be nice if Baltimore had an NHL or NBA team to follow, but with the new arena still years away from breaking ground -- much less being completed -- that is nothing but a pipe dream.

I spent a nice Sunday down in Fells Point at Max's Belgian Beer Festival, which helped kill some of this idle time. A trip to somewhere warm sure would be nice right about now. Last year during this time, my wife and I went to Miami.

Note to self: Take more mid-February trips.

That's all I got.
