Oriole Driven to Alcohol


No offense to Baltimorians, but the Orioles suck and even the mascot knows it. That's why he's seen here with brew in hand ready to drown his miseries of another soon-to-be awful season away. Maybe the Oriole should hook up with Pittsburgh's Parrot and play a drinking game based on losses per season and consecutive losing seasons (that would lead to alcoholism for sure). Damn, it feels good to no longer have a destitute team on the baseball diamond in Philly. Remember not too long ago the tables were turned and the O's and Buccos were on top.

as a baltimorian (or more appropriately baltimoron) i say don't feel sorry for us. we've become pretty much a football town now, while there still is a lot of oriole fans, most of baseball season is spent counting down the days of training camp.

also i kinda like the o's but i've always been more focused on the phils

can't blame the bird, the o's have been in a quagmire for a while

I still enjoy making my way down to Baltimore every now and then to take in a game though, beautiful stadium.

just another team who gets a few good players then trades them because they cant afford them. But the Oriole does have one of the nicest homes in all of baseball. At least most of the other new parks are designed after thiers.

i more shocked that the bird is drinking rolling rock. where is the natty boh?

Andrew said...

Thanks for the blurring! Boh is often a drink of my friends, but Rolling Rock is our cheap beer of choice. After I took the picture the bird asked me not to put it on the internet. Jokes on him.
