What an awesome story, APRILMAY1956! I enjoyed reading it. I love baseball because my entire family was into it together. We often went to baseball games together with cousins and friends. Baseball = family and closeness and love and excitement. i don't know what could happen to stop me from following the Orioles!

Hi - I'm an O's fan because my dad was a lifetime fan listening to baseball on the radio when he couldn't get it on TV. When he got a satellite dish he was in 7th heaven 'cause he got to watch his O's all season long. Later he got cable tv and continued to love the birds and wouldn't miss a game come thick or thin. I watched with him, and we saw games at Memorial Stadium when Boog Powell, Brooks Robinson, and Eddie Murray played. My favorite pitcher was Quayar (spelling not sure of) back then. And who can forget Jim Palmer back in his day and the legendary Cal Ripkin.

I used to drive right by Cal's house on my way to work each day. Well Dad passed 6/11 and before he died I took his picture with a Markakis jersey draped over his hospital gown and an Orioles cap on his head. he was grinning from ear to ear. My boss was going to arrange for him to go to Camden Yards and meet his favorite player then, but Dad didn't feel up to it. He was in the final stage of bladder cancer then after a 2 1/2 year battle. I love and miss my Dad, and my Mom just gave me his old easy chair to take home. He watched all his beloved Orioles games in that chair.

One last thing I'll never forget I came home from school and found Dad laying on the bed watching the World Series -was it '63 or '66 that they won? Anyway I think it was Dave Johnson (don't know if that was his last name or not), but he was at bat and hit a grand slam and my dad was shouting Grand Slam, Grand Slam, he got so excited he fell off the bed. That was my dad and it just showed me how fun baseball can be, besides I lmao at what he did that day when the Orioles scored.

I like both your comments, guys. You expressed my thoughts and feelings better than I express them myself. I find I am becoming more and more excited as February and Spring Training approach. I just love the game of basball!

Baseball fandom is geographic. Born, raised and still live here. Attended all three world championships in person. I just renewed my season tickets for 2012 in fact.

Losers change hats every year. I stick with the Orioles because they are my baseball family. Baltimore is the only baseball city I have ever attended a game where the locals cheer the other team for a good play.

I think Baltimore has the most knowledgable baseball fans in the leagues. Nw York the stupidest: if it didn't happen to the Yankees, it didn't happen, if they are in second place at the end of April it's time to throw up your hands and declare the season a total loss.

One more reason to stick with the Orioles. Peter Angelos is over 80. He will not own the Orioles forever. It is a fact.

I'm with you too Marty. Really enjoying the Post season as well. It will be especially sweet if the Rangers can drive the stake through the heart of the Yankees and finish them off. Not that I am a huge fan of the Rangers, I just DESPISE the Yanks.

For the first time in years the O's future seems bright. I'd love to see a veteran pitcher to fill the role that Millwood was supposed to this past year. I also think we need a power hitting 3B or 1B (or both) and via trade or the June Draft, it is time to start thinking about life after Brian Roberts at 2B. He's still looking good when he's healthy, but that seems to be less and less.

OK, time to sign off SP for the night and catch the end of the Giants-Phillies game!

The Orioles are my team. It kills me that every time the Yankees or Red Sox are in town, the Camden Yards has more of their fans then ours. The downtown hotels and the inner harbor love it. Even with Peter the Great's higher ticket prices for these games it is still easier and cheaper for a people from NY and New England have a long weekend in Baltimore and see a few games and spend their money downtown. It is tough to get tickets in NY and Boston and the scalper and resale site prices are really high! Now that I have gotten that off my chest, I believe that if the O's can get a solid starter and a power hitter, they will be right there in the mix next year. If they just get a solid starter, they will definitely be above .500. If they get the power bat, they will be in the playoff race. I do not care if the Yankees buy Cliff Lee in the off-season, which will begin soon for NY. NY has an old 3rd baseman and shortstop. I believe Mark Teixeira tore his hamstring last night. Did you see him go down quickly. NY said today that Teixeira is being replaced on the roster by Eduardo Nunez. That means that should the Yankees overcome a 3-1 deficit against the Rangers in the best-of-seven ALCS, Teixeira would not be eligible for the World Series. NY is saying the injury will need six-to-eight weeks to heal. A pulled hamstring can be a day to day thing and can be wrapped to allow one to play. A torn hamstring needs surgery. I bet that Texiera gets surgery in January. With Buck as the Manager, the O's will get there and the Yard will be filled with O's Fans like it was up until 1999.

I'm glad you found us! We do like to discuss "our Birds" on this Team, and we also support each other in our weight loss and stay healthy endeavors.
Including yourself, there are 3 of us from this Team living on the Shore. I live in Cambridge and Gym_Rodent (aka Timothy Bishop) lives in Eden.
As Spring Training approaches this Spark Team will come alive with chatter. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

P.S. I grew up outside of DC and was a Senators fan as a kid. Then I moved into my late teens and became too cool for sports. I didn't come back to MLB until I was in my late 40s. I started following the Os during Cal Ripken's last 2 or 3 years so I missed those glory days. So, anytime you want to enlighten me, go right ahead. At any rate, I am hooked and will be an Os fan until I die!

Hi. Just found this team even though I've been a SP member since March '09. I am an O's fan because I was born and raised on the Eastern Shore and have lived in MD my entire life but for 2 years of Graduate School in Tennessee. I love all sports and it didn't hurt that the Birds ruled baseball in my formative years of the late 60's/early 70's.

I currently work in Easton and reside in a very rural part of Dorchester County a few miles north of Vienna.

Looking forward to the discussions here.

Hi all, I'm new to SP and this team. My hubby is a huge Orioles fan and I've always liked baseball. We live in Chester, VA but his sister lives outside Baltimore so we would go to games whenever we visited her. But this last year we would come up there just for games and not see her :) Our 2 year old loves them too and one of the first things he said was "Go Huff" (so sad when he was traded!). And as a female it doesn't hurt that Nick Markakis is on the team! I follow the School of Roch blog obsessively and just love all things O's. This is their year!!!

Hey all! I am an O's fan all the way in Virginia Beach. Usually I get to see a lot of the AAA Norfolk Tides games on the weekends, but I try to get to Camden Yards a few times a year. I love the Orioles because I do..baseball has always been a big part of my life. My parents met because my dad was the little league coach and my mother was the team mom. I have 5 brothers and they all played and I played fastpitch softball. My mother is from Puerto Rico and my father from Maryland...so I suppose I am staying loyal to the O's because of that.

My husband is from Seattle so he is a Mariners fan. Though I did catch him with a Roberts shirt on at our last visit to Camden Yards.

The difficult is done at once; the impossible takes a little longer.

I'm sticking with the Os this season because they DESERVE to be League champions! Brian Roberts deserves to play for a Championship Team! They all play so well most of the time. If we could just get some reliable starting pitchers...

I stick with the Os because they are my local team. This season, I am finding another reason to continue my support. I see that they are building a talented club by bringing in these rookie payers. They make mistakes, but it is clear that they have skills.
Go Os!emoticon

i know our hitters are struggling right now, but I really think the problem is pitching. We haven't had, and don't now have, a strong veteran winning pitcher.emoticon

I like your reasons CHICLET. Growing up, our family team was the Washington Senators (I know, I know, I'm giving away my ageemoticon). We went to many a game in old Griffith Stadium (once my seat was behind a pole!) and then we went to Kennedy stadium until the team finally disbanded. We, too, would listen to games on the radio. It was part of summer.
Now I cheer for the Os because they are the closest Team to me. Plus, they play A WHOLE LOTemoticon better then the Senators ever did!

I stick with the O's because they were my team growing up, and now they're my kids team. My sons play rec baseball, and know all the stats for all the players. On the weekends we'll all watch the game and have a cookout or go for icecream after the games.

When I was typing the below message, the O's were up 4-3. I just found out that they won 10-3. I believe the Orioles guardian angel was reading my post.
Way to go O's!! Keep your runs coming in!

Connie, you can have all the seltzer water you want. Fill them frosted mugs up with some diet A&W Rootbeer, and I'll go "cheers" with ya!
The Boston series was a learning series. Hopefully, and I'm possitive they will, get their poop in a group and really start running away with some wins. Way too many close games that can go either way and a few games where they totally lose their butts.

I stick with the Osemoticon (even after the Red Sox debacleemoticon) because the players are good players and have so much potential!

Here's to better games in the future emoticon. BTW, that is seltzer water in those mugs!

I don't pay much attention to the Spring Training games, but, if my memory serves me correctly, I don't think they ever do well pre-season. My memory also tells me that they usually start off the season with a BANG emoticon, then slide downhill as the months go by.

At any rate, we are all counting on them doing a lot better in '09!!! emoticon

My dad took me to an Orioles game. It was against the Yankees. It was over in Memorial Stadium. Our seats were up in the mezanine. There were Yankee fans directly in front of us, and 4 nuns in front of them. The Yankee fans kept running their mouth about the nuns habit (the hat they wear). One of the guys told the others that they should move to Hawaii because there are only 3 % nuns there. One of the others said that they should move to Alaska because there were only .5% nuns there. Well, the nuns heard this (who couldn't!) and the elder nun turned to them and said "Why don't you all just go to hell, because there are NO nuns down there!"

Just a joke. Hope y'all liked it.

Yankee Haters UNITE!
Here's my story: I went to an Orioles-Yankees game at Camden Yards some years ago. The Yankee fans sitting around me were getting on my nerves before the game even started!emoticon Anyway, the speaker announced the singer--who happened to be a nun. She began to sing and then, I think she happened to look up see herself on the big screen in the outfield, and her voice stuttered and faded for a few seconds. Well, those Yankees started booing and catcalling. To my great pride, the Os fans began singing loudly where the nun had faltered. She was able to continue the Anthem and finished to thunderous applause from the local fans. I was so proud!emoticon

I agree with you Tim. Only complaint is I hear some language thats a little rough. Its not like going to the Redskins game. I have only been to one of those and that was good. Some Red Sox fans have been good but we hate the Yankees.

Hello Ravenette1. I see you are the newest member. Way to go! Welcome!! We are very glad to have you.
I would LOVE to live closer to Baltimore so I could get season tickets. I'm lucky to make it to 1 game a year. This year, I am definately going!

One other thing I like about the Orioles is the other Oriole Fans. I know there are good and bad in all crouds, but I've NEVER been to an Orioles game and ran into a rude Orioles fan. They are always smiling, and ready to strike up a conversation about the O's. It's like, there is a completely different class of people that follow the O's. Kind of like the team, you don't hear the foul mouths, cockiness like some other teams. And we know I'm talking about the Yankees, and the Red Sox.

I think I like the Orioles, and always have because they usually don't have a "big mouth" on the team that causes alot of controversy. Of course, that's the team my dad brought me up to like, so, I've been raised to be a fan. The Orioles will always bring back many wonderful memories of my dad and I going to the games, or watching them on t.v.

So glad you have joined us. How much do you remember about Washington Senators games? Did you go to see them when they were still in Griffith Stadium? If you were a Senators' fan, than I know that you are also a "never give up on them" kind of fan. That's just what the Os need.

BTW, who is your favorite Orioles player?

Hey everyone this is a Bird fan stuck out in the southwest! I started going to ball games as a baby with my mom and grandmother watching the Washington Senators. I was born in DC then later moved to WV and after the Senators were gone I gave my alliance to the Orioles. They may not win any titles but I love em anyways. Unfortunately I'm in AZ for the next few years so I may not get to see them play for awhileemoticon I am such a baseball nut that the lullaby I sang my sons and later grandaughters to sleep with was "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Go O's

Yay Orioles!
I AM doing well right now. Keep me in your thoughts on Thursday as i am having my ovaries out. One of them has a cyst growing on it and my GP and oncologist say, "take them both out and you won't ever have to worry about ovarian cancer!"
Once I've recovered from the anesthesia, I'll have plenty of time to catch up with Spark People...

I too watched the Senators. But after they left we started going to Orioles games. My brother use to take me. I never went to a Senators game. I love my Orioles and will keep with them for ever. I know they will get back in the race again. Connie I'm glad you are doing well also. Nancy

You are so right; there truly is nothing better than a Maryland crab cake dinner and watching an Os game.

I grew up watching Washington Senator games (I lived in Silver Spring then). I knew of the Baltimore Orioles, but never paid them any mind. Once I went off to college, I left baseball behind. Of course the Senators had disbanded before I went to high school. It wasn't until 35 years later that I got back into baseball. I was recovering from months of cancer treatments and had little energy. It was summertime and as I flipped through TV channels (that was all I had energy for), I came across an Orioles game. All that enthusiasm for baseball came back to me and I never looked back! One funny moment came when I was watching a game and I waited for the pitcher to come up to bat. It was so odd when he didn't. I didn't know about the DH.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to a new season. emoticon

Just thought I would update this post...better late than never! I was reading all of the posts and would like to proudly say, "I stick with the O's because of was born and raised in Baltimore, MD". I've been loyal to the O's from Memorial Stadium through the change to Camden Yards. My old boss was in charge of keeping the company tickets, so, needlesstosay, I always claimed the extras and a parking pass! OK - so I was spoiled a little :)
Even though I have lived almost 9 years out of MD, there is nothing like eating a crab cake dinner while watching an O's game when I can.

Have a great Spark Day!

Thanks for all your contributions to Orioles fandom!!! I do want to set up the fiber challenge. However, I'm going away for a long weekend. Will get to this on Wednesday.
In the meantime, here is an article from Ask The Experts about fiber. This will get you started:emoticon

What are some ways to get extra fiber in my diet?


Check out this list of high fiber foods. Just 1-2 changes in your daily habits can really increase your fiber intake. Remember to increase fiber slowly over time, allowing your body to adjust, and drink more fluid, especially water. Fiber acts like a sponge. It will absorb the water, adding bulk to your stool, making it softer and easier to eliminate from the body.

7 grams or more of FIBER
All Bran Cereal 1/3 cup
Fiber One Cereal 1/2 cup
Butter beans 1/2 cup
Green northern beans 1/2 cup
Kidney beans 1/2cup
Navy beans 1/2 cup

5-6 grams of FIBER
Raisin Bran Cereal 3/4 cup
Bran Flakes 3/4 cup
Brussels sprouts 1/2 cup
Turnips 1/2 cup
Black beans 1/2 cup
Lentils 1/2 cup
Pinto beans 1/2 cup

2-4 grams of FIBER
Grits 1 cup
Oatmeal 3/4 cup
Popcorn 3 cups
Pumpernickel bread 1 slice
Rye bread 1 slice
Apple 1
Apricots 4
Orange 1
Pears 1/2 large
Plums 2
Prunes, dried 4
Strawberries 1 cup
Broccoli 1/2 cup
Carrots 1
Green beans 1/2 cup
Lima beans 1/2 cup

There are some other articles as well. I just typed fibeer into the SparkPeopole SEARCH box at the top of the page. checki it out!

I am the converter of Zach, otherwise known as the "woman from Maryland" or wife or Kim. :)

We have been talking about fiber in our diet the last few nights because our numbers on the nutrition tracker are way lower than they should be. We were going to research it a little and figure out what we needed to change, so that challenge sounds like a great one. If you have any suggestions for adding fiber to our diet that would be great also.

Zach,
I want to congratulate on being Yankee-free for so long! emoticon

Now that your daughter has grown, is she a baseball fan, too? My daughter (who is 22) takes me to an Orioles game every year for my birthday. We have such a great time!

I have to say that the Yankees are fulfilling all the nasty dreams that I harboured against them for so many years. Not doing so hot anymore, are they? Too bad Mike Mussina left Baltimore for New York. He hasn't gotten a W.S. ring yet.emoticon

Again, welcome to you all! I have not been keeping up with my own Spark Team, but I have more time coming up and want to set up a challenge or two. What do you all think about keeping track of our fiber intake? I know that most Americans don't even come close to taking in what they need. I'll look up the requirements based on gender and age. Then I'll figure out how we can track it.
If this doesn't appeal, let me know and feel free to make suggestions.

Hello Birdfans.

Im Zach and i live in Richmond Va, believe it or not i actually grew up a Yankees fan. but I married a woman from Maryland who was an O's fan.(imagine the tension).At least she is a baseball fan. when she was pregnant with our daughter we would sit and watch O's games on the TV down here. My little girl would get all excited and kick around in her. So i am converted now. I have been Yankee free for about 8 years now and have never felt better..LOL. I love watching the birds and i watch about everygame. We try to get to Camden a couple games a year. I am excited about our team this year. I am a dreamer thinking that we can make the post-season. but a winning season would be satisfying. Nice to meet some fellow bird fans on this site. LET GO O'S

I'm so pleased to "meet" you. I live in Cambridge; where on the Shore do you live?
I do think our team is doing better this year. My great hope is that they can end the season above 500.

We'll talk some more, later. The way things are going today, I feel as if I'm trying to fit 16 hours into an 8 hour workday.

One thing I'd like to do is have a challenge. If you have any ideas for such a thing, I'd like to know what it is...

Hi, my name is Connie. I'm 59 years old now but I've been a baseball fan since I was 9 or 10. I grew up outside of Washington D.C. and my parents took us to many a Washington Senators game before that team was closed down.
As I grew into my teens and young adulthood, I became too cool to pay attention to baseball. But in 1996, I was diagnosed with breast cancer (am fine now!) and underwent an entire year of treatment. I was so wiped out most of the time that all I could do was watch TV.
My enjoyment of baseball came back to me and I began to watch the Orioles (I live in Maryland). I enjoyed the games, but I also enjoyed the wonderful childhood memories that came back to me. So, even though they haven't had a winning season since 1997, I stick with them because "they were there for me" when I needed something to make me feel good!
