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.

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 →
In the middle of a bit on HBO’s Last Week Tonight about Afghan president Hamid Karzai’s America-dissing farewell address, John Oliver fired back.
