Baltimore County Now

In Baltimore County, we are proud to be the home of the Ravens. They may play their games in M&T Bank Stadium, but when the games are over and the lights are off, they make their home in Owings Mills. The preseason is always exciting, not necessarily because of the games themselves, but because we know football season is on the way.
As the Ravens play the Detroit Lions tonight in Baltimore, things are a little different. For the first time in years, on the same night as a football game, the Baltimore Orioles are deep in a playoff race. The O’s may not make their home in Baltimore County the way that the Ravens do, but they are just as near and dear to our hearts as the Ravens.
So tonight, we face a dilemma that we haven’t had to deal with in ages, the prospect of flipping back and forth between Ravens football and a playoff race involving our own Baltimore Orioles. As problems go, this is a pretty good one to have and I know I speak for everyone in Baltimore County when I say its one we wouldn’t mind having every year.
