The Baltimore Orioles’ dream of a perfect 162-0 season ended today with a 11-2 loss to the Evil Empire, dropping them to 2-1 and 1/2 game out of their one-time stranglehold on first place in the AL East. I guess I can take solace in the fact that this amazing first place and unbeaten run lasted much longer than I had ever dreamed of, but it’s still a sad day and pretty much ends the baseball season. At least the NFL draft and NBA & NHL playoffs are just around the corner!

I don’t get a chance to say it often and when I do it’s typically in April, May or not at all, so please let me have my moment when I proudly scream — how about them first place Baltimore Orioles! My boys roughed up C.C. “not gonna live up to his fat contract except in maybe his waistline” Sabathia and the New York Yankees earlier today 10-5 and are now in a two-way tie for first place in the American League East with the Toronto Blue Jays. Sure, it’s one game and it surely won’t last, as we’ll likely finish yet another season 30+ games under .500 and out of the playoff hunt by the All-Star break, but it’s nevertheless nice to start things off 1-0 and unbeaten against the hated Yanks. Let’s go O’s!
