The Chop is in the Loss Column

We wrote a blog post for you to read today, but you can’t read it here because it’s not on this site. Instead, it’s over The Loss Column. Today’s post is all about seat-jumping at baseball games and its relationship to social mobility in American Life. Please take a moment to click over and check it out.

It Could Be Worse: Out of Town Fans Invade Camden Yards

But stop and think for a moment… it could be worse! With BWI being a hub for Southwest Airlines, fans from all over the country can fly here cheaply. Now that that dumbfuck of a commissioner is talking about expanding the playoffs, we could be only a few short years away from a league-wide schedule shakeup. In the modern game, geography matters little, and profit margins matter much. Imagine if we had some new divisional rivals with whom to contend…

Orioles vs. Twins @ Camden Yards Tonight (Pickled Eggs)

Tonight is the first Tuesday bargain night of the season, so we’re going to be watching tonight’s game as God intended- in the stands with the die hards. Now that the ball club sucks again, we happily predict that the fairweather types and the school aged kids will be staying home…

Opening Day 2011 @ Camden Yards Today

We hate to naysay.

Oh wait… no we don’t. We do it all the time. Like right now when we say that the Orioles will not break 70 wins again this year. We’re not one of these fancy schmancy analytical sabermetric blogs, so we’ll just give it to you in a nutshell. Aside from having Buck Showalter and a new coaching staff for a whole season (Thank Christ no more Terry Crowley), we don’t think the team is much better off than they were last year…

Vuvuzela Giveaway Night @ Camden Yards: Make it Happen, Baltimore!

Tonight the Chop and all of Baltimore welcome back the Orioles to our fair city after a long and disgraceful road trip. Well, it wasn’t that long, but it was plenty disgraceful. The Birds played horribly and continued to look like a collection of amateurs who not only are not a team in any proper sense of the word, but who look as though they’ve never actually met each other before…

The Best Bars to Visit After an Orioles Game at Camden Yards

No trip to Oriole Park is complete without a pre-game beer for happy hour, and between the Inner Harbor, Pickles and Sliders’, Pratt Street Ale House and the Chop’s favorite, California Tortilla there’s no shortage of options near the park. Unfortunately, this is not the case for post game cocktails…

The Orioles & Horseshit in Downtown Baltimore Tonight

You know you live in a fine town when you’re turning up your nose at the chance to see incredibly talented, nationally acclaimed bands from your city for no other reason than ‘meh.’ But that’s exactly what we’re up to. We skipped Sick Sick Birds and the other openers on the canceled Leatherface bill last night…

The Daily Camden and 10 Mistakes

You might think the Chop is all about liquor and rock music and the fairer sex and sleeping until noon and watching baseball, but you’d be wrong. We’re smrt. And we know all about business and technology and all junk like that. So today we’re happy to announce that we’re guest-blogging over at folkmedia.org…

Chop Style: Rick Dempsey is the Worst-Dressed Man in Baltimore

Let’s get one thing straight… the Chop loves Rick Dempsey. Not like we love our Dad or Roommate, but more like we love our favorite uncle. You know that favorite uncle… he’s quick with a joke, kind as a saint, a little self-effacing, never wears out his welcome, and has some great stories to tell…

Orioles Opening Day @ Camden Yards Today

Like we said way back in December, Opening Day is the real New Years’. The Baltimore Chop could scarcely be more excited for the season. Not because we expect great things on the field, or because we have great seats, or even because the weather is gorgeous. No. We’re excited merely because when the lights…


Orioles Try Not To Embarrass Themselves @ Rays Tonight

So… let’s get this straight right now. This is not a baseball blog. This will never be a baseball blog. If you want to read a baseball blog, there are several fine selections in the column to your right. This is a blog about ME! It’s a personal blog. But it would never do to post about…

Free Parking at Camden Yards

Happy Easter. Opening Day is in less than a week, and as a reward to all of you loyal Choppers, the Chop is going to turn you on to some of the best places to park downtown on your way to Camden Yards. Some of these spots indicate loading zones (our favorite) Some are free parking all day…
