"I Don’t Love the Orioles, but I Do Love Orioles Nation"

Norman Schimmel is not an Orioles fan, but he plays one on public access television.

Sort of.

Schimmel testified before the Sarasota City Commission regarding the Birds’ Spring Training move there.

Multiple clips of the hearing now appear on YouTube, but Schimmel’s is the most entertaining.

Says Schimmel:

“I don’t love the Orioles, but I do love Orioles Nation.”

“I love these people, and yet I’ve never met one yet.”

“They will raise my property value, they will pay assorted taxes, they will create much-needed income ….”

Baltimore = Bucks. At least that’s the hope in Sarasota.
