"What's beef?" Christopher Wallace once asked. Is beef having a ceremony to celebrate the Super Bowl champions, but not having anyone within the organization show up?
The question stems from the Orioles declining to move their Sept. 5 home game so the Ravens could host the NFL Kickoff game -- an honor typically reserved for the world champs. The Ravens will begin the season on the road. The two stadiums are so close that it would have been a logistical nightmare to have the games going on at the same time. The Orioles are scheduled to host the Chicago White Sox at 7:05 p.m. ET that day. The team was willing to move the time of game, but the Ravens and the NFL passed.
Neither team said who was invited and the Orioles gave a "no comment" when asked about the situation.
