O’s Sweep WS Chump Phils
The O’s completed an unlikely sweep in Philadelphia yesterday afternoon, winning their first Sunday road game of 2009. By virtue of the 2-1 victory, their second consecutive one-run win over the defending World Champions, the Birds have now won 5 straight and 7 of 8.
Something had to give this weekend in the City of Brotherly Love, as one of the worst road teams (B’More was a dismal 8-20 going into the series) clashed with one of the worst home teams (the Phils are now just 13-22 at Citizens’ Bank Park, compared to 23-9 when they bat first). In the end, despite the best efforts of Dave Trembley, it was the good guys from B’More that emerged victorious every time.
Nick-a-What?! organized a bus trip to Philly for the middle game of the series, and, as promised, here are some photos that I took before, during, and after the roller coaster of emotion that was Saturday’s 6-5 O’s win.
Are you bored with your same old, run-of-the-mill drinking games? If so, hit up Nick-a-What?! or myself, and allow us to introduce you to the wonderful game of “BASEBEER,” which we concocted while bored at work a few years back.
The Oriole Bird causing some trouble. The Phanatic eventually came out and chased him away, but not before some Philly fans tossed full beers onto the field at him (insert obligatory Philly-Santa-Snowball reference here).
The score was never 4-1, but Nick-a-What?! was a sad camper nonetheless.
