I remember when I was really little, thinking that the Orioles, Padres and Giants should all form some sort of color spectrum alliance in terms of representing brown and orange. In my mind, we would battle against the Reds, Red Sox and Cardinals for the rights to the non-blue end of the color spectrum.
That would be awesome.
I hold no ill will to the Orioles. I thought I wasn't that into Cal Ripken, but then that Hall of Fame Class with him and Tony Gwynn was probably the last best class. Old school. Single team guys. No doubt HoFers.
Anyways. That said, I hope the Padres sweep and and then crush the little O'birds and then do something or another with excrement to show their dominance.
