The Baltimore Orioles are my favorite baseball team. Too bad they won't be in the 1996 World Series. Because of the NY Yankees, 
they are no longer in the driver's seat. At least they made it to the 1st round of the playoffs against the Cleveland Indians. The Indians had the best record in the 1996 regular season, but the Orioles were up two games to none.

This year Baltimore had the most hitting power ever recorded in history. They hit more homeruns than the Bronx Bombers when they had Mantle, Ruth, and Marris. The thing that is hurting the Orioles is their pitching staff. I hate it when people say that they should win every game with the type of offense they have. Well, I have news for you people, the way you win a baseball game is with your pitching and defense, and not with your offense.

I would like to have your opinion on the Roberto Alomar and umpire situation. I however agree with what the Baseball organization did because Roberto Alomar did spit in the umpire's face during the regular season. Therefore he should serve his suspension during the first 5 games of the 1997 season. I do know that what he did was wrong, rude, and sickening. So write back and give me your opinion of the Roberto Alomar vs. umpire situation.

There are many types of music that many kids like and listen to in the 90's. Many kids like rap, while others like alternative or some other style of music. Many kids also like each style of music just the same.

Rap groups or singers that many teenage rs listen to are R. Kelly, 2 Pac, Bone Thugs In Harmony, Coolio, Nas, and many other singers and groups. There are many other alternative groups that kids listen to. Some of the groups could be Bush, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Sponge, Nirvana, Alanis Morrisette, while Hootie and the Blowfish, Grateful Dead, Matallica, are considered classic rock. White Zombie and Antrax might be considered Heavy Metal or Hard Rock and many more.

When I did an informal survey of my friends, most people said that they liked rap. In second place, the most popular w as alternative, and third was those who said anything but country. And last, with only two kids was country. E-mail Travis if you know of cool web sites or just wanna chat!
