CareFirst can crow about O's and charity

It seems many of us are prone to "anemia," but I would not include the Baltimore Orioles or CareFirst in that category.

So many organizations that can afford to be charitable are not, so I give kudos to CareFirst for their contributions to the community. If they help to sponsor our O's games, then I'm OK with them sharing that they back our team and Baltimore in a good, non-anemic way.

Some of us are loyal Orioles fans and really don't bother with winning or losing, but how they play the game. I'm so proud of them and their accomplishments, Each of the men on the team also gives to the community, even when it's not advertised. Any acts of kindness or charity are very much admired and appreciated.

I am glad we don't have to read any more such blather about CareFirst caring first. Everyone's premiums are going up, believe me, and accept it. At least we can stop complaining and give thanks for quality health care and for quality groups who continue to give their time and talent and yes, money.

    Unfortunately for the Orioles and their loyal fans, the Orioles Magic we have experienced this season morphed into Orioles Tragic when facing the Kansas City Royals. I guess if you had to lose to any team, I'm glad it was to the long-suffering Royals who have a fan base reminiscent of our own.
