About Roar from 34
I'm a lifelong Orioles fan and former journalist. I use Roar from 34 to play the roles of amateur sportswriter and historian. I blogged about the O's for six losing seasons before finally having the opportunity to write about a winning team in 2012. This site has provided me with some unique opportunities including working in the Camden Yards press box and serving as a guest blogger on MASNSports.com.
The name Roar from 34 derives from the infamous Section 34 Rowdies at Memorial Stadium who were led by the patron saint of Orioles baseball, Wild Bill Hagy. Hagy is the only fan to be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame, and his Rowdies were the essence of "Orioles Magic" in both spirit and song: "When the game is close, and the O's are hot, there's a thundering Roar from 34 to give it all they've got." I was too young to be a Rowdy myself, but those fans are part of Baltimore baseball lore.
The Roar from 34 tagline perhaps best summarizes my efforts: "Humor. History. Homerism. Since 2006."
