What's your best 2009 Orioles slogan, sign or chant?

I am celebrating a little today.

Because I never again have to write about "Baltimore" on the road jerseys. Now, when the Orioles find a spring training home once and for all, I may be able to retire a contented man.

Yeah, I'm at least 25 years from retirement age, but it is not a sure bet that the spring training mess will be resolved by 2034.

I am turning today's subject over to one of Connolly's patrons, AL East -- remember, I'm always looking for topic suggestions from you people.

AL East, who gets a free drink chip, wants to know what the best sign is you've ever seen at a sporting event. And he/she wants you to come up with a good sign for this year's Orioles.

AL East's suggestions include: "Let Them Eat Kake. 21." and "We're Watching Nick at Night. 21."

The most amusing sign I have seen at Camden Yards so far this season was the nasty, "Tex, Severna Park Hates You," directed at New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira on Opening Day.

I'm not an arbiter of hate, but I did chuckle a little at the direct tenor of that one. I'll never forget a few years ago, someone had a T-shirt with Peter Angelos' face and a slogan that said, "Baltimore's Real Peter Schmuck."

Mean-spirited and perhaps out of line, but clever.

My favorite of all-time goes to the student body at Austin Peay University back when James "Fly" Williams played there. The ultimate classic: "Fly is Open. Let's Go Peay."

We've done chants and signs in here before, and I have no problem recycling them for a bonus special. But let's make the regular special a little fresher.

Let's hear your most clever sign, slogan or chant for the 2009 Orioles/their players. (This is a waist-high, Bruce Chen fastball for Rob, Scooter and some others).

Daily Think Special: Give me your best 2009 O's slogan or chant.
