Wow. . . What a great piece of baseball writing by Charlie Vascellaro! ("The View from Section 8," Feature, Oct. 10) I WANT TO LIVE IN SECTION 8! For all 81 games too!
I sit here in Tulsa, Okla., reading this article online, and I can only say that Charlie's writing made me feel as if I had the good fortune of being present for those games against Boston and Texas and New York, and that I got to scream "O" with the rest of the gang during the anthem . . . and I felt pride in the fact that the Orioles beat the Rangers (who are pretty popular here in Oklahoma) and that the statue garden was a reality now . . . just another reason to come back east again and visit Baltimore and see it for myself.
Congratulations to the Orioles on this great season, to the city of Baltimore for loving your team, win or lose, and to City Paper for having such a gifted writer that can transport someone 1,500 miles in their mind in the 10 minutes it took to read this article . . . obviously a labor of love.
Thank you, City Paper, and thank you, Charlie Vascellaro! Let's go, O's!
