I grew up in Baltimore City.
I watched all 18 innings with my 6-day-old son sleeping on my chest. The O’s are 5-2 in the little guy’s lifetime!
I went to bed in the 7th and tossed at 2 am and immediately turned on ESPN to see that they had tied it and they were in the 14th.
Then I forgot my password to get on mlb.com to listen so I had to follow “gamecast” on mlb. This team is more than scrappy, they are likeable, loveable and a joy. I don’t want to say destiny because I only asked for .500. but this is a beautiful team.

Fifteen years since relevance, I can stay up until 3:00 CST (live in Nashville) to watch the O's pull out yet another amazing victory. 5 hours later, I'm at work reading all the articles covering last night's marathon. Go O's!
I didn't stay up for the whole thing, but I managed to tag along until 2:35 AM. We can't get MASN in our area, so I have to rely on the MLB gamecasts online for pitch-by-pitch. That makes things even more agonizing, waiting for pages to refresh, etc. Still, I followed the entire game from first pitch up to 2:35 AM, since I try to stay strong for my O's here in North Carolina, even if that means lost sleep and early rising for work! I saw that we won when I checked again at 5:00 AM. The best part of waking up is a VICTORY in your cup!
I never pulled an all-nighter as a student, but last night was close.
I keep score only when I'm at the ballpark. So I was able to do some reading and housecleaning in between pitches and innings.
I drove to Annapolis without incident this morning but expect to be heavily caffeinated for the public hearing I'm attending at 10 a.m.

I'm a Baltimore transplant living in San Diego. Now before you say "big deal, you're on west coast time," I get up at 3:30am for work, so I never left the eastern time zone. Five hour energy drink and diet mountain dew are definitely my friends this morning. I watched the whole game, and from the 6th inning on I watched it downstairs next to my sleeping wife. A series of silent fist pumps at Darren O'Day's strikeouts and Tommy Hunter getting out of two jams. I freakin’ love this team!
So here was my night:
1. Due to the crazy weather it took me two hours to get home from my job in NYC back home to CT
