the motherfucking miserable orioles. i don't expect a winning season or anything stupid like that, but i do expect to be able to sit down and watch a game or two every now and then and not have to keep slamming my head against the wall in agony.

Re: all this fireworks hand-wringing - Meh. Fireworks are fun and they're safe enough. Those big mortars don't go off with as much force as you guys are saying. And this guy who got decapitated, if you read the articles, seems that he was messing not with fireworks, but with munitions. Very different.

Surgery was unsuccessful. Vision in left eye is completely gone. His step son shot a bottle rocket off and its course got deflected by whatever he was launching it out of. My uncle was 40 feet away and looking the other way when it hit him.

De-fucking-capitated.
In a trailer park.

I prefer the guillotine, but they are too fancy for trailer parks.

Sorry to hear that Stephen. Make sure he gets a second opinion. See my post above for a reason.

Damn. Tough situation for all involved. Best of luck to them.

The Orioles management is just awful. I think I read somewhere that they get the least wins per million dolllars of payroll of any team in the league. It's a shame, because it's a great park.

Big +1. Americans seem to feel like we can stop every single bad thing from ever happening to anyone.

An apology to StephenHero: While I do stand by my general comments on fireworks, I think I was focusing on Rube's story and somehow didn't notice yours. My thoughts go out to your uncle, and I'm sorry to hear of his condition. Posting what I did, where I did, was callous. I'm sorry.
