For die-hard Orioles fans, Opening Day is the place to be - no matter what. Despite a cold drizzle and not-so-warm predictions for the Baltimore team, a crowd gathered to watch the 6-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays last Monday. They donned their baseball attire and marched to Camden Yards, hoping for a win. Despite the loss, true believers remained unshaken. "You've got to love your hometown team," said Tito Aracia of Lanham. "It's one of the few things you can rely on in this world, coming out to see your team on Opening Day."
