Glenn Clark's Baltimore Sports Wishes For 2018


By Glenn Clark, PressBox

In my final print column of 2016, I introduced a hashtag (#In2017CanWe...) and offered Baltimore sports wishes for the coming year. Looking back on it, I didn't get my way.

Among my hopes for 2017 were: that we'd stop complaining about attendance at games; Baltimore would get high-level pro soccer back; get more live national sports broadcasts on local radio; honor Terps basketball legend Adrian Branch in the Xfinity Center rafters; embrace Baltimore's new Arena Football League franchise; see the Ravens develop an impact receiver; have the Orioles extend third baseman Manny Machado's contract long-term; see the UFC return to Baltimore, and take steps toward a new arena and revitalization of Pimlico Race Course.

It really wasn't my year. Although I did also hope to see Maryland snap its 42-year lacrosse national championship funk, so I guess one out of a million ain't bad.
