Peanut butter and jelly, apple pie and ice cream, Baltimore and sports – some things just go together. Baltimoreans take their sports seriously. Today, sports fans flock to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the first of the new breed of retro ballparks, to cheer on the O’s or the Birds as they are known locally.
The city’s love affair certainly extends to the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens (wait until you are in town for a “purple Friday.”) You also can catch indoor soccer’s Baltimore Blast, wildly popular collegiate lacrosse (you’ll find the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame here); the Preakness Stakes, the middle jewel of racing’s Triple Crown; collegiate football, and international soccer “friendlies.”
