Angelo$ talking points reports that MASN/O’s owner Peter Angelo$ will be on Marc Plotkin’s Politics Programtomorrow at 10:30 a.m. on WTWP (107.7 FM/1500 AM). Angelo$ is there to talk about why Nats fans cannot watch their team, though I dobut he will say it is because their TV rights belong to a competitor that wants to see them fail.

The phone number is 1-877-628-WTOP. Here are some recommended talking points if you manage to get through:

– Why should any Washingtonian believe you have anything close to our interests in mind? You spent years badmouthing our city and our baseball fans and were the only owner to vote against moving the Expos to Washington.

– The Orioles have no references to Baltimore or Maryland on their uniforms. Is this because you lack pride in your city and state or because they don’t want to be associated with a perennial loser?

– Why do you insist on doing everything in bad faith?

– Two years ago you said “there are no baseball fans in Washington D.C.” How do you explain the Nationals outdrawing the Orioles, despite Baltimore having a vastly superior ballpark?

– How come the Orioles store in downtown Washington has no Nationals merchandise?

– No other Major League team controls another’s television rights. Why is it ethical for the Orioles to control the Nats rights?

– How is your friend Fidel Castro doing these days?

– Why does MASN only have programming for Nats games and nothing else, not even a pregame show? With so little to program, why is the coverage so poor?

– You insist that the Orioles be subsidized by Washington. Do you believe that Baltimore is a second rate city that needs welfare from D.C. to get by?

– Is it hard going through life without balls?

– Are you naive enough to believe that trying to destroy the Nationals will endear you to Baltimore fans more than building a winning team?

– Which Oriole will get a DUI this year? Which one will get busted for steroids?

– You refuse to go head to head with the Nationals in a free market situation. Why are you such a coward?

– Why are you taking out the frustration of your failed political ambitions on Washington baseball fans?

– The ugly battle over the Nats TV situation is like World War II with the Soviets and Nazis duking it out — both sides were evil. What are you, a Soviet or a Nazi?

– Will you sell the Orioles to Jeff Smulyan so he can move them to Indianapolis?

– Over the years you have alienated a number of popular Orioles like Manager Davey Johnston, broadcaster Jon Miller and now Elrod Hendrick’s widow. Who will run out of town next?

– Are you looking forward to spending your entire afterlife with Bob Irsay, Calvin Griffith, and Bob Short?

– Which bridge do you live under and how many other trolls live there with you?

– You are the one of the most hated men in Baltimore and now Washington. Which city comes next?

– Baltimore has been called the STD capital of the nation. Given your erratic behavior, one wonders if you suffer from syphilis — do you?

and of course

– Why do you hate freedom Mr. Angelo$?

Please feel free to add your own.

    It’s almost like you don’t like the guy, WFY…almost.

    I’m hoping someday WFY feels comfortable enough here to say the things he really feels. This shirking violet stuff is so sad.
