Baltimore Orioles’ owner Peter Angelos’ alter ego?

Baltimore Orioles' owner Peter Angelos' alter ego?

With Fox Sports correspondent Ken “knows-it-all” Rosenthal reporting that Orioles owner Peter Angleos is in possible discussions to end his reign of terror…er…sell the team to a group headed by Oriole legend, Iron Man Cal Ripken, Jr., I was struck by Mr. Angelos’ striking resemblance to another familiar villian…

Angelos………………………………………..Emperor Palpatine (or is it the other way around?)

….and so it goes.

Hours after the original post, The Baltimore Sun prints Palpatine’s reply:

“Angelos: No Ripken sale
He denies report that ex-star’s group will buy O’s gradually, like Ravens”

Good thinking. Why would the Orioles ever want to emulate a successful sports franchise like the Ravens, 2000 Super Bowl Champions, who are currently 10-3 and headed-to-the-playoffs? (Things are lining up especially well for the Ravens as two of their final three remaining games are at home, and all three are against teams with losing records: the Browns, Bills and Steelers.)

Hey Cal! Thumbs up if you think Peter Angelos looks like Emperor Palpatine.
