Chapter 5: The Orioles and Colts weren’t the only teams that mattered to a kid who loved Baltimore sports

The Peter Principles (Ch. 10) – Syd Thrift, Confederate money and the new Oriole Way of 21st century

Peter Angelos was once called a “windbag” by a rival politician during his City Hall-aspiring days and six years into his reign of terror with the sputtering Orioles, his many words and lack of success with people would lend some credence to that claim.

Chapter 1: This whole WNST thing was started by man in Dundalk who loved Orioles

In case you missed Free The Birds in 2006, here's the book that tells the story of "why" behind the rally and movement that was a direct message to Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos. Nestor wrote a book about his Pop's love of baseball and the hometown Birds.
