"Hot as Balls"
I tried to hit the pool in Baltimore today and lost 50 lbs, missed Sarah Palin by a hair. She briefly stopped for a photo-op at Ft. McHenry today. Damn it! Just when I'm nice and ripe! I guess she'll have to wait another day to sign my ass cheeks.
Gigantic statue of Orpheus at Ft. McHenry. Erected in 1914, "Orpheus" honors Francis Scott Key, who wrote the poem "The Defense of Fort McHenry"while held captive on a British ship in the Chesapeake. Set to the tune of a British drinking song, Key's poem was later adapted into the "Star Spangled Banner", the national anthem of the United States.
