Not enough coffee in the world to help me right now, but it was all worth it.  I am at a loss for words with this team, AND FINALLY FOR ONCE IN SEVERAL SEASONS, THAT IS A GOOD THING!!!

I stayed up until the end of the game and had to be at work at 8 a.m. I live in Ocala, FL, and this on a day spent in synagogue for the Jewish New Year wearing my Oriole Yamulke. I am exhausted.

Yes, I was a devoted fan and watched the 18 innings.  I was really hoping for them to finish the game (WINNING of course) by 4am so that I could catch 2 hours of sleep before the alarm went off!  It was well worth the missed z's. 

GO O's!! 

(but even if they had lost, it still would have been worth staying up to support our boys)

What a game! I stayed up in hopes that Showalter would have to go in and pitch.

Sleepy in DC,

I missed the game last night to go to a concert instead. But lucky me, I checked the score just in time to catch the bottom of the ninth, and a still got to watch a full nine inning game anyway! At this point, extra innings just means a guaranteed win, so I knew I couldn't go to sleep. Paying for it this morning but it was totally worth it--love our boys!

Yes I stayed up and watched the whole game. Luckily my wife was out of town and our little girl slept soundly.

I had to get up at 6:15 to get her ready for kindergarten. I am hoping I put meat on her sandwich.

Easy to wake up after a one hour nap when the Orioles win.  Here’s my story:

I went out to watch the game and chat with friends.  I was getting ribbed by a Yankees fan friend after the Mariners took the two-run lead “How about your Orioles! Ahah” in a sarcastic tone, but I kept the faith and got my digs in when the Orioles finally tied it in the 9th.
