1. Dunbar hosted a basketball game almost every friday Night and everybody to include their drunk uncle Butchy was there. Anyone who was fortunate enough to have been part of the experience can tell you the place had a Roman Coloseum like aura about it where the Poets were the Beastly Lions and whatever team that had the misfortune of wondering out of the visitors locker room was the sacrificial Lamb. The Poets never failed to deliver the blood and gore while almost always tearing opponents to complete shreads. (Meth is blushing) It did not matter what school you attended or where you were from, Dunbar on friday nights was the place to be...and so were the girls.
2. The old MSA-A was a super megladon conference made up of Most of the current Miaa-a schools (save Spalding) to include Bcc, Poly and Dunbar. Nothing but dog fights all the way up to Thanksgiving day at Memorial stadium. Will never forget the year, Bcc tussled with CHC in the tunnel as the Mcards had just crushed The Blakefeilds and Bcc was headed out to face Poly......aaaahhhhhh...those were the days.
3. St. Joes actually recieved the recognition they deserved for winning countless wrestling titles. They still win on a high level and face tougher competition these days but simply don't get the attention they deserve. What gives.
4. The entire west end of the Baltimore metro area had football behemoths in Northwestern, Poly, Gilman, Mcdonogh and Randallstowns. Wether it was a conference, state or county/City league title, you had to go through one of these schools to get it. Anyone recall the name "Andre Creamer".
5. The MSA-B Conference basketball championship was a totally hyped 3 game series to include a home and home with a neutral site rubber match at JHU (if required) if they still do it, then pardon me but yet, the City league and Miaa-a should consider a championship series because simply put, it would be great for the game. Baltimore High school basketball features the highest and toughest level of competition in the entire nation. Why not install a 3 game series to determine the champion. It would be great for the game and the kids and communities would love it....WADE AND COMPANY...I'm just saying.
Ok girls....AO is out of here and I'll see you guys in Mid August as I'll see many of you at the scrimmages. Until then, if you need to get a hold of me, pm here on the board or email me at AgentorangeBcc@yahoo.com.
