Geez, I know, it sounds kinda harsh. And they may not be the worst team, but they sure have the worst record, by far the worst record. I really like the Orioles. I like everything about them. They have one of the best ballparks, best ballpark food, and
some of the friendliest fans on earth. But honestly! When we were there a few weeks ago they were playing the Washington Nationals who have one of the best rookies in the game this year. So even though the Orioles can’t get anyone to turn out for their games,with the Nationals playing only 30 miles from their hometown, they should have had a sellout crowd, but they didn’t and I was embarrassed for them.
So when I saw this video today, I totally understood it. I guess it’s just that the fans in Baltimore don’t have a lot to cheer about! I didn’t watch the game, but Minnesota beat them 5-0 last night and with the rousing cheers this guy was getting running around the field you can imagine the excitement threshold of the game was pretty lacking at least from an Oriole fan’s perspective. One can only imagine what craziness might have ensued if he’d decided to streak……and in that Baltimore heat it wouldn’t have been a complete surprise!
Thanks for indulging me this morning. I just returned from vacation and wanted to blog, but not about anything heavy. Boy, I sure lucked out huh? I’m just trying to cut the poor Oriole fans a little slack for cheering on bout the only thing they’ve had to cheer about this season. It’s okay dudes! We’ve all been there but thank you God, not this year!
