Why is Baltimore so angry? What pisses us off so much?

According to a study conducted by Men's Health magazine, Baltimore is the fourth angriest city in America. The magazine looked at the percentage of men with high blood pressure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and FBI rates for aggravated assaults, as well as workplace deaths from assaults and other violence. Traffic congestion was also given consideration.

Tops on the list was Orlando (I suppose Mickey is in Mini’s doghouse) followed by St. Petersburg (I suppose the Social Security checks bounced) and Detroit (Supremes reunion cancelled?).

I thought that maybe this study had something to do with the Orioles, Peter Angelos, the Ravens quarterbacking over the past 3 years as well as the offensive line. But how would that explain Cleveland being ranked 32nd? They have never won a Super Bowl, they still bitch and moan about Art Modell, they are on their fourth center this preseason, no World Series win since 1948, it’s cold there, the football fans eat milk bones, there’s no ocean – just a filthy lake.

So what gives?

Maybe LeBron James and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ease their pain?

For the record, the other AFC North cities (Cincinnati and Pittsburgh) finished 34th and 90th respectively.

That really pisses me off!
