After over 30 years that have seen more frequent bad times than good ones, the Orioles ownership by the Angelos family is set to end imminently upon the sale of their stake to Baltimore-born billionaire David Rubenstein. This is something that has been hoped for by different people at different times for decades and now it is finally here. We have made it through the Angelos era.
Peter Angelos’s heavy-handed, thought-he-knew-better bungling in the late 1990s helped to send the team into a spiral for a long time. For the last several years, we’ve been contending with his son John, who revealed himself to be a thin-skinned doofus about a year ago and spent most of the last year publicly either crying poor or sounding like an idiot. The stewardship of neither one of these guys is likely to be missed.
Our partners at BreakingT are out with a brand new shirt design to commemorate that we’ve made it through the Angelos era. You survived! You won’t be spending decades wondering if John will ever sell. If you’re in the mood to celebrate the occasion, please consider purchasing through the below link to support your hard-working Camden Chat manager (that is, me):
The design is available in youth and adult sizes through 3XL, as well as a women’s shirt style. If you want to stay warm in the winter, you can even get it on a hooded sweatshirt if you want.
