Jimmy’s Famous Seafood comes through.  
The Ravens, whose offense could be charitably described as mediocre in 2016, got a big lift this week with the signing of free agent receiver Jeremy Maclin. The quick, 9-year vet’s production dropped off last year in Kansas City, partly due to injuries, but he’s only one year removed from back-to-back 85-plus catch, 1,000-yard-plus receiving seasons. Maclin seems like a natural fit in Baltimore, teaming with speedsters Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman.

Throughout contract negotiations with Maclin, Jimmy’s Famous Seafood pitch in with some recruiting of their own. Initially, the popular Dundalk restaurant offered Maclin free crab cakes for the length of any deal, and then eventually, crab cakes for life. The offer from Jimmy’s (which often hosts Ravens events and players) didn’t go ignored. This was Maclin’s second tweet after signing: @JimmysSeafood “I read what y’all said … I love crab cakes! Lol.” 


Local soccer teams goes on Cinderfella run

Sponsored by a Glen Burnie liquor store, the Christos Football Club took the American soccer world by storm over the last two weeks, reaching the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup, the nation’s oldest soccer tournament. The local squad, which doesn’t even practice, was the last amateur club standing (they knocked off two pro teams in the process) before they had their run ended by the D.C. United of the professional Major League Soccer on Tuesday. Amazingly, the match was tied right until the 81st minute when three late goals put the game away for the professional—and fitter, we assume—club from D.C.

The best news: A shoutout from Sports Illustrated? A sponsorship deal with Adidas? The $15,000 grand the organization earned for being the last amateur team standing? 

Nah. Just scoring first and holding a lead against the pros until 23rd minute.

“To go up 1–0, that’s heaven right there,” Christos club founder told SI.


Not much to cheer about regarding the Orioles right now, so we’ll take a laugh where we can.
 
Hyun Soo Kim, our endearing Korean outfielder, just got more likeable. Check his spot-on impersonation of O’s closer Zach Britton. Note: Kim actually throws right-handed.
