On Sunday, we told you about The Horsebox, a bar in New York's East Village that Orioles fans have adopted. Josh Adams was among the displaced Marylanders who found their way to Avenue A to watch the Orioles take on the Yankees in ALDS Game 3. Here's Josh's report:
The Horsebox was packed with
fans, making it feel like a little slice of
in the East Village. The familiar Oriole Bird hat was in full display among the patrons and when
went deep in the third inning, an ear-splitting "Let's go O's!" chant erupted. Even the bartender was wearing a "Bohlieve" shirt and an Orioles cap.
No one I talked to claimed to have seen this year's success coming. This season has been such an unexpected pleasure, it's been a happy dilemma to find an Orioles bar to congregate. What everyone with an O's hat agreed on in a small corner bar in New York City was their common love for the Orioles, and they were all happy to finally find a place away from home that felt like Charm City. Win or lose.
