JOY IN MUDVILLE

Last night the Orioles won their fifth straight game and had almost 43,000 fans in the stands. A rainbow even was seen above the stadium. Maybe it is a sign from the baseball gods. Prior to last night they were lucky to get 13,000 to a game.

Due to a series of injuries, and a near fan insurrection, the management of the O's has brought up four young rookies in the past week who have all out performed their veteran counterparts. They are pitching like crazy, hitting home runs, and playing good defense. Suddenly, the old-timers on the team, used to losing, are feeling the youthful energy course thru their veins and the team is beating the pants off those they are playing. They just took two games from the Detroit Tigers who are in first place in the Central Division.

Mary Beth told me she actually saw me smile last night while watching the game. During our 11-year relationship, the same amount of time that the O's have had losing seasons, I've never once smiled during a game.......OK that is a bit of an exaggeration but you get the drift.

Let's hope it continues. I'll keep you posted.
