WBAL.com’s midday webcast reports Cal showed up on crutches after blowing out his knee playing basketball yesterday. We certainly wouldn’t expect the Ironman to cancel on account of an injured knee.
The blogosphere was on the scene as well. The blog Oriole Post – The World of Baseball and Beyond posted a video of the parade. Perhaps the coolest coverage can be found at the Bel Air Scene blog where blogger Bob has posted a lengthy slide show of the event complete with funky transitions. Check it out here.
If you still want to catch Cal in person, last week’s Examiner.com story reported:
“Another pre-game ceremony is planned at Oriole Park on July 24, five days before Ripken’s Hall of Fame induction.”
