Cold Beer: A Toast

Recommended Posts

An Opening Day Toast made yesterday before the game…

1337559992069413694S425x425Q85.jpgHere’s to another Opening Day. To a season of cold beer and warm nights at Camden Yards. To Jim Hunter’s optimism and Jim Palmer’s rants, to Joe Angel’s barks and Fred Manfra’s chuckle. To ‘O’ in the Anthem and ‘Country Boy’ in the Stretch.  To heartbreaking losses, to meaningless wins, to untimely injuries and bad bullpen decisions. To veterans that slump and rookies that flounder. To manager tantrums, worth admission alone. To passed balls, to wild pitches, to overrun bases, to first pitch swings and watched third strikes. To finding new ways to lose, never seen before or since. To your hat stained with the failure of twelve seasons past. To that small part of your soul that comes alive every April and dies by June. To faith in the stands and failure on the field.

Here’s to a season of Orioles baseball. Again.
