The second part is accurate, but I guess Rex, like many misinformed fans/local sports talkers in Baltimore, don’t quite understand the complexity of the scheduling conflict between the Orioles and Ravens. I’ve already written, podcasted and tweeted about it numerous times. In short, the NFL used Rosh Hashanah as an excuse for making the Ravens start their season on the road in Denver.
