The Most Cursed Sports Cities in America

This one will make you feel pretty good about where Baltimore stands. This post by The Upshot of the NY Times details the most cursed sports cities in the country. At the top of the list is a city that holds a special kind of hate for Baltimore: Cleveland. From “Red Right 88”, to “The Drive”, to “The Fumble”, to “The Shot”, Cleveland has had quite a number of heartbreaks going 147 professional seasons without a title. LINK

A Reminder of a Bitter Past: Colts Residency in Indiana Eclipses Stay in Baltimore

For young fans such as myself, this might be a new story. For fans who were around for the Colts years, it’s anything but new. Yesterday, on the day that the Colts’ time in Indianapolis surpasses their time in Baltimore, Nathan Beaucage of Baltimore Beatdown looked at the move that the Colts made from Baltimore to Indianapolis. He starts with the origins of the Colts franchise in Baltimore and goes on to the events that led up to Bob Irsay taking his team and moving to Indianapolis in the middle of the night. LINK

Urban gets timeout for getting too close to Flacco

Brent Urban got into a little bit of trouble yesterday when he got too close to the quarterback for the second time. As Clifton Brown of CSN Baltimore reports, he celebrated afterward which sent Coach Harbaugh over the edge. As Harbaugh put it, he’ll be in his room for the next couple of days. LINK

Newcomer Kendrick Lewis Already Making Strong Impression

Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com takes a look at Kendrick Lewis. He has taken the first team reps with the defense at the safety position thus far in OTAs. According to John Harbaugh, he is a very instinctual player. He looks like a good pick-up for the Ravens and a great addition to a secondary that, to put it lightly, struggled last season. LINK

All-Underrated Team

Elliot Harrison put together his all-underrated team earlier this week. Three Ravens make the list: Justin Forsett (of course), Kelechi Osemele, and Daryl Smith. All three are very deserving, but the other twp player for whom you could make an argument are Jimmy Smith and Joe Flacco. There is a stronger argument for Flacco because of Jimmy Smith’s mid-season injury (and well, because Chris Harris Jr. and Desmond Trufant are both highly deserving), but overall, this list is pretty accurate. And I usually disagree with Harrison’s analysis. LINK

About Tyler Lombardi

Tyler has followed Baltimore sports his entire life. His favorite player growing up was Steve McNair, so he was ecstatic when he became a Raven in 2006. When he’s in front of the TV watching the game, it’s best to avoid non-football discussion. It’s quite likely he isn’t listening anyway, as his girlfriend can attest to.
