Oh, Baltimore

Early this afternoon, I spotted an Orioles cap in the middle lane of the viaduct over the Gowanus Canal. At that point, the O's were down 0-3 to the Royals in the playoffs; by the time I got home from work, they were eliminated. Congratulations, Saint Louis. As for always, Randy Newman says it best:

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live.

Was it ever thus? Just take a look at the photograph above: Brooks Robinson, pitcher Dave McNally, and catcher Andy Etchebarren celebrate sweeping the Dodgers in the 1966 World Series. Don't toss your cap.
