"My fondest Orioles moment has an unhappy ending," said director Jason Winer, whose projects include "Modern Family" and the new NBC comedy "1600 Penn." "I was alone in a hotel room during a super cheesy commercial shoot in Minneapolis, Minn. I knew no one in town but that was OK because the Orioles were on TV and they were providing both a warm connection to home and an incredibly exciting night of baseball. They were in the ALCS! Unfortunately this was 1996. And I was watching game one against the Yankees. Like I said ... unhappy ending."
