Both the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals have made it to the playoffs this year, which means it’s possible–though not necessarily likely– that this will be the year of the Beltway World Series. Talk about some serious DC-Baltimore rivalry. And Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake isn’t afraid to get in on the fight.

The Washington Post asked Rawlings-Blake and DC Mayor Vincent Gray a number of hypothetical questions about a Os-Nats match up. Both mayors are politicians first, and that comes across in their answers; SRB manages to work in sentences like “I am committed to improving our communities” into her answers. Fortunately, we’ve scraped away all the fluff; here are the best examples of (gentle, political) smack-talk by SRB from the WaPo’s interview:

According to a reliable source, police in College Park are “cracking down on University of Maryland students acting like assholes.” Okay, so the “reliable source” is something called BroBible.com. But who better to report on the news from bro land? (You may also remember the site as the home of the foul-mouthed UM sorority girl’s dating advice column. Sigh.)

Gawker Says the Baltimore Accent Is Ugly

Gawker Disses the Baltimore Accent

Gawker just released the bracket for their own America’s Ugliest Accent Tournament, decided by user votes. In Round 1 Baltimore is pitted against Boston.Okay, Gawker, I’ll bite!

I have to tell you what I find most interesting about this is that Baltimore is seeded no. 16, meaning — as far as I can tell — that Gawker decided it is least likely to be determined the ugliest of all accents represented, and a far cry from Boston, seeded no. 1.

In giving the rundown of each accent in the first matchup, Gawker more-or-less gets the Baltimore accent right, giving two example phrases of words cribbed from Baltimorehon.com: “warshing an Ole Bay stain out of your shirt in the baffroom during an Oh-ree-oles game” and “Get dem highgeranium plants in ‘fore dey freeze.” Read More →
