Rick Dempsey couldn't be in Baltimore yesterday to be honored with the other members of The Baltimore Sun's all-time Orioles team (he had a good excuse -- his Brewers played in Boston), but he sent a poem he wrote in honor of Memorial Stadium. The poem was read Friday at the luncheon honoring the all-time team.
She's the lady in red, She's Baltimore's Best,
and many a great one have come from her nest.
She gave birth to a thousand, adopted a few,
by the way that she loved them nobody knew.
There was Brooksie and Frank and Booger by name,
there was Palmer, McNally, Paulie and Blade.
