Seems like everyone is feeling Orioles Magic these days – that’s right, the Orioles for the first time in fifteen years are tied with their arch rival, the New York Yankees for the AL East lead. Both with a current standing of 79-59, it’s looking like anything can happen for our O’s! Although the pressure’s on and fans are on the edge of their seats, insisting “why NOT Baltimore this year?!” the Orioles still are not taking themselves too seriously. Mark Reynolds states, “We're just having a good time and we're not putting pressure on ourselves. Everybody knows the situation we're in but we're just taking it day by day and having fun." As always, not taking ourselves too seriously and having a good time here at THE AVENUE as well. We’ve become the phrase, “We Bleed Orange in Summer, Purple in Winter, It’s Weird,” (although I’d rather modify the phrase to read, ““We Bleed Orange in Summer, Purple in Winter, It’s a BALTIMORE Thing,” because what’s weird about that??)
We’ve lined our tree trunks with purple pride for our Ravens and our evergreens are glowing orange for our Orioles. You’ll find THE AVENUE dome over A.C.Moore luminescent purple and our over-sized clock at ULTA radiant with orange. But that’s not all! If it EVER stops raining… our local graphics artist will be out to beautify our streets once again with a theme more fitting for our city: The Bad Birds of Baltimore.
SO keep your fingers crossed and keep that Orioles Magic coming, O’s! On the other hand, our Ravens are revved up and ready to start their season, already feeling their super bowl win in 2013… and so am I! Do YOU have Ravens spirit? Don’t miss Della Rose’s Third Annual Rally in the Alley – Friday, September 7th - The fun begins at 7pm! This outdoor street festival will include M.C.W. Championship Wrestling, live music, food and drink specials, AND purple Madness. We’ll have a big screen rolling of the best Ravens photo montage we can create. Wanna be seen on the big screen? Send your Ravens photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Only ONE day left to submit photos! All photos must be submitted by Thursday, September 6th for inclusion.
