1. Orioles Opening Day

To many Baltimoreans, there are only two times of year -- Orioles and Ravens seasons. The Ravens are our perennial almost-Super-Bowl-bound boys, but we have much more of a soft spot for the always-underdog O's. You never know if they're going to improve (even a bit) or if there will be a stand-out player this year or if Buck Showalter will smile more. But you know you'll enter Camden Yards at some point and everything will just feel right -- even in the nosebleed seats. Even if you don't land a ticket to Friday's opener at home against the Twins (3:05 p.m. Call in sick), you can cheer from Pickles or any bar of your choice. Because, as always, we love our O's. <a href="http://www.orioles.com">orioles.com</a>
