I went to my second Orioles game of the season tonight. Both nights have been great games and great times. The first was a loss for my Tigers, but still a good game, while this one was an awesome victory over the Red Sox. The stadium was, as usual, filled halfway with Red Sox fans, and it's nice to get a victory for the Os in that situation. One woman in front of us even had a sign that said Fenway South. That pissed me right off.
I love some of the traditions at Os games - the shouting of "O" during the national anthem, the crab scramble, the flashing E in "The Sun" sign - but hate "Cotton Eyed Joe." I'd rather listen to "YMCA" over and over and over again than hear "Cotton Eye Joe" and see everyone dance to it. Both games this season, I've left for food during the 7th inning stretch, and today I recognized it as a defense mechanism so I wouldn't have to be in the stands during that performance.
Speaking of food, I found out today that they serve Veggie Burgers at the stadium! I don't know how long they've done that, but I've been going pretty regularly for a few years now and I've never seen this booth before. It's right by section 33, where I very well might never have been before. It was sort of crushed and cold, but much better than another boring pretzel with mustard.
Lastly, since this is a baseball related post, I have to point out to everyone that the Detroit Tigers have the best record in all of the major leagues at this moment.
