But Baltimore's baseball fans? Oh, we can and do take such slights to heart. Underrated, overlooked, underappreciated — that suits Baltimore to a tee. We like to keep a chip on the shoulder the size of the Washington Monument (the original one, of course) for just such occasions. Everybody seems to like the Nationals to win the National League pennant, by the way, which means, oh, it's on, Nationals fans. Mon dieu, former Montreal Expos, how did you guys do head-to-head against the Orioles last year? Seems like the Orioles won the Beltway Series, trois games to un. Let your All-Star starting pitchers chew on that for a while, mes amis.
