I’m happy to say I was in attendance for Sunday night’s Orioles–Yankees tilt. The timing was bad and the rain delay was worse but I had my tickets (along with semi-frequent commenter sci) and there was no way I was missing the first playoff action at Camden Yards in 15 years.
The atmosphere was amazing for most of the night. I’d estimate the crowd at something along the lines of nine-to-one in favor of O’s fans and that, as you know, is no small feat. Kudos to the Baltimore fans for coming up big. Big enough, in fact, that I won’t waste much time on how Steve and I had the unfortunate luck of being seated just behind the world’s most annoying Yanks fan. Some 22-year old chick who I could swear thought she was auditioning for a guest spot on Jersey Shore. Awful.
Then the result, of course, left much to be desired. But it’s all good. Playoff baseball returned to Camden Yards, and it was amazing.
I have no idea what to expect from the rest of the series. It’s 1-0 Yanks as I type, so we go from there. Go O’s.
