My Revenge

March 28, 1984. That's the night, my BALTIMORE COLTS were stolen by that drunk, ASSHOLE, bastard. Every March 28, I'm usually the biggest jerk you'll ever meet. Somebody could say HI and I would say Shut the hell up. But I decided that the best way to deal with my BALTIMORE COLTS being stolen wasn't to take it out on complete strangers. But the DRUNK, ASSHOLE, Bastard.

So I went to a shooting range on Friday March 28, 2008. I blew up a picture of that DRUNK, ASSHOLE, Bastard to use as targets. I used a five shot 357 hand gun. I had never been to a shooting range before. But I did OK for my first time. As you can see I hit my target once. But once is all I needed. I totally missed the picture twice. I missed the target twice, though one came really close. Next time I won't miss.

I went to the shooting range with 11 other people, most of who I've known for only a short time. Of course most people asked who was that asshole in the picture. Somebody asked me what's the significance of March 28th since I told her, I had to go to the shooting range on March 28th. I really had a tough time explaining, after all I don't want to cry in front of people who are mostly strangers. Maybe this will explain it.

In case you don't know the asshole in the picture is the fat, drunk, asshole, jerk who STOLE the BALTIMORE COLTS on March 28, 1984. He's been rotting in hell, officially since 1997 but really since 1972 when he bought, then destroyed the BALTIMORE COLTS.

Open Letter to roger badell

NFL Commissioner roger baddell
280 Park Avenue
New York, N.Y. 10017

Dear sir:

You can go to HELL. It was your bad advice and stupidity that prevent the great city of BALTIMORE from getting an expansion team back in 1993. Only somebody as stupid as you couldn’t see that BALTIMORE had the best proposal, best stadium plan, and the BEST FANS.

Too bad you and your boss at the time, were puppets to Jack Kent Cooke and did everything to prevent the great city of BALTIMORE from getting the expansion team they deserved.

Glad you and your boss suffered through bad PR when Art Modell took his football team to BALTIMORE. But being the gutless cowards you are, you caved into the Clowns and their idiot fans whining and crying and gave them an expansion team. A team that got to keep its name, logos, colors, history and records.

Too bad the NFL never thought about that after the BALTIMORE COLTS were stolen in the middle of the night.

Honor Elizabeth Wainio

While doing research for The Flight That Fought Back, I found out that Honor Elizabeth Wainio was born and raised in Baltimore, something I didn't know until last week. Honor Elizabeth Wainio along with 39 other passgeners and crew of United Flight 93 made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001 by overtaking the plane that was headed for Washington DC.

Honor Elizabeth Wainio was a district manager for the Discovery Channel Stores. And a damn great one. She made her region the top selling region. Honor Elizabeth Wainio was going to San Francisco for a business meeting. She just returned for a trip to Europe.

I don't know but somehow I felt a connection to Honor Elizabeth Wainio. I never knew her. Never met her. But I got to thinking she could have been that Orioles fan at Memorial Stadium. She could have been in the crowd in 1995 when Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's record. She could have been saying what a jerk Jeffrey Maier was for interfering with the fly ball Derk Jeter hit. She might have been mad as hell toward Richie Garcia, the idiot umpire who blew the call. She could have been a Baltimore Colts fan. She could have hated that drunk bastard as much as I do. She could have cried the night of March 28, 1984 when the Baltimore Colts were stolen.

I just found and started reading a book, Among The Heros. In the chapter about Honor Elizabeth Wainio I found out she was a die hard Baltimore fan. Her aunt was an original cheerleader for the Baltimore Colts. Honor Elizabeth Wainio replaced the Yankee logo on her store's screensavers with that of the Baltimore Orioles. She also told her dad after Baltimore Orioles pitcher, Mike Mussina signed with the Yankees, "How dare he!!"

That says it all about Honor Elizabeth Wainio's fighting spirit. So nobody should be surprised she helped fight back against those bastards.

I am sorry I never had the chance to meet Honor Elizabeth Wainio. I do know I will go to Shanksville, PA. I will place a brick from Baltimore Memorial Stadium with the words that used to be on the front facade:


Now that I think about it, Honor Elizabeth Wainio would want to beat up Jeffery Maier after he cost the Orioles game 1 of the 1996 ALCS. And if I was that jerk Maier, I would be scared, very scared. And I bet she rubbed it into all the New York Giants fans because the Baltimore Ravens beat the Giants in Super Bowl XXXV.

The 1984 Baltimore Colts

Ok I'll admit I rarely thought about this title when I ask what IF.

So what if the Baltimore Colts were not stolen by that drunk bastard and stayed in Baltimore for the 1984 season and beyond?

Well here is what I would like to think would have happened.

The Baltimore Colts had two first round draft choices in 1984. The 1984 draft was weakened by the USFL signing Mike Rozier, Steve Young, Herschel Walkers, and Reggie White. NFL owners being the cheap bastards they are, were more worried about drafting players that were easier to sign.

So the Baltimore Colts had the 8th pick and 19th pick in the first round. If the Baltimore Colts drafted CB Leonard Coleman, fine, he would have been a bust. He signed with the USFL since the drunk bastard was too cheap. But with the 19th pick they should have taken Maryland QB, Boomer Esiason who was drafted by the Bengals in the second round, pick #38. Esiason had first round talent but dropped because what NFL owners thought he could cost a lot to sign. Esiason's idol as a kid? None other than Bert Jones of the Baltimore Colts.

So if the Baltimore Colts drafted Boomer they would have solved their QB problems. Boomer would lead the Benglas to the Super Bowl and was one of the best QB in the NFL.

Mike Pagel was decent. Mark Herrmann was nothing. Art Schlichter wasn't a good gamble. :) Pagel and Herrmann split time in 1983. Schlichter was suspeded for gambling durin ghte 1983 season. But he was allowed to play in 1984. But would be cut in 1985.

So with the Baltimore Colts drafting Boomer Esiason they would have continued their rebuilding project. Oh the possibilities.
