Going to see the Orioles play the NY Yankees today. A friend had an extra ticket and asked if I wanted to go. I have only been to a few baseball games in my life but every time I go it is exciting.
The rivalry between these teams makes this experience that much better. I have never seen the Yankee dynasty play in real life. I don’t think I have ever been to a game of this magnitude. I think this game is the equivalent of the Ravens vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kevin hart would say that “it’s about to get real!” There are floods of Yankee fans walking through the streets. It looks like Baltimore is being invaded by some sort of toxic blue sludge bioweapon.When I stepped outside and I saw all of the Yankee Blue I went back in the house to change my clothes. I was in my usual attire, “all black everything” (A term made popular by Jay-Z and Lupe Fiasco) but something was missing. I remembered that I have an ugly Orioles hat that I never wore because it was ugly. I bought it when I was going to a roller skate event in another state. I wanted to rep my city so I bought the only Orioles snap-back cap I could find in Downtown Locker Room.
The hat isn’t so ugly to me now. The colors fill me with a sense of pride. I’m sure I will feel even more pride when I join the deluge of orange and black on the walk from my apartment to Camden yards.
