Judged by His Beers: The Orioles may think they sell status with Camden Yards skyboxes, but true O's fans know they've really earned their way into an exclusive club when they make it onto Fancy Clancy's short list. If a fan is deemed worthy, Fancy Clancy (aka Clarence Haskett), one of the greatest beer vendors to ever work the Yards, will run that customer a tab. A tab at a baseball game? Now that's good livin'. Talk to some of the longtime customers in Haskett's territory, among the box seats on the first-base side of the field, and they'll likely gush about the honor of being handed a beer without having to dig in their pockets for a few crumpled dollars to pass down the row to the vendor. | Charmed Life by Charles Cohen
