Last weekend a Phillies fan threw Tolleson's homerun back on to OUR field. I've seen some dick moves but this is by far the dickiest. If there's one thing I love it's hating teams from PA but the real question is why was a Phillies fan there to catch it instead of an O's fan? Those chump ass fans outnumbered our awesomeness 3-1.. Why? Phillies are in last place, O's tied for first. FIRST PLACE. Where are you O's fans?
Over the past 15! years we've wanted a real team. We've cried, we've cursed. Now they're here and have we given up? Are they here too late? No, they are not. This is what happens when you love the home team. You love them no matter what.
Do not blame all of this on Angelos. I bet some of you are Redskins fans *rolls eyes* and you're going to those games. Next argument?
Bandwagon Fans? Are you bored already? Hockey is over are you waiting for basketball to finish? Yawn.
Oh are there so many games, you'll get to one eventually? Hmm...New York and Boston don't seem to have a problem filling their stadiums. They sell out, what, every game? So much so that we all know they have to come here! Fenway South. Bite me!
Too expensive? There are so many bargain nights, packages, group plans, and you can bring in your own food and drinks. A friend of mine had 4 tix behind the dugout with a parking pass and had to struggle to give them away. What?! Why?
Waiting for Brian Roberts? He's back and already kicking ass.
K so imagine you're on the O's. You're in your home stadium and there's more cheers for the opposing team than for you. Now how does that make you feel? How are you motivated? When it comes to contract time are you going to try to stay? Or say you're in the draft - will you want to come here? (suck it Teixeira!)
We have great talent. How many will be All-Stars? The token 1 player because no one is around to vote? No way are all those stupid Yankees All-Star worthy every year, they're simply winners of a popularity contest.
It's time to take our stadium back. I'm pissed and every Oriole fan out there should be too. Let's show up, not sell seats to opposing fans, and let our team know that they're home, in Baltimore.
*As of June 12, I've been to 8 games, so don't even think about giving me any grief. I'll go to any game, and whine about how hot it is :)
