For Those About To Rock...

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh


Camden Yards was rocking yesterday as a record opening day crowd of 48,607 people saw the Birds beat the very expensive Yankee$ by the score of 10-5.

It may have rained a bit prior to the game, but Oriole Park was full of orange & black fanatics who cheered their team at every point. And booed loudly too, when appropriate. Ask traitor Mark Teixeira what I am talking about. He heard it worse than any NY bum, and with good reason too.

It was a David vs. Goliath sort of afternoon. The high priced Bronx Bombers against a small market bunch of nobodies... and guess who pulled it out with a vengeance. Today the NY club is home licking their wounds after the whipping they got yesterday afternoon.

After the Yankees took a 1-0 lead, the Birds came back with 6 runs against the large fireballer, C.C. Sabathia, who did not strikeout one opponent yesterday. Roberts and Adam Jones combined to go 6-7 on a great Monday afternoon that Oriole fans will not soon forget.

Making my 4th straight Opening Day game (and my third straight Fanfest on Saturday), I have had more fun in the last 3 days that I have in several years. My dad and brother got to enjoy the game with me this year, and spanking the Yankees made it oh so sweet.

Though the Orioles are unlikely to compete this year, the enthusiasm and love from the stands yesterday was a promising sign for the future. Let's keep the stands packed this year Orioles fans and make Baltimore a city that all others will fear.

N.B. - This Friday night, fleece scarves will be the giveaway item at the game against Tampa Bay. So come out and support your Orioles!
