For the past 20 years, Baltimore has played host to the legions of fans who descend upon our Oriole Park at Camden Yards. For those same 20 years, we have endured many a losing series accompanied by many losing seasons. So it is with great hope and joy that we watch ourO's win night after night. We are even returning to the park to watch games live.
That means we are, with good reason, cheering our team — like the recent night when "Let's Go Red Sox" was often muted by "Let's Go O's." Granted, for fans like those visiting Red Sox fans, this cheering may come as some surprise and perhaps dampen their enjoyment after having become used to hearing only themselves root-root-rooting for the away team.
Be that as it may, how 'bout these out-of-towners take it upon themselves to just cheer for their team and refrain from throwing sodas and spitting? Just asking. Let's go O's!
