The adventures begin (in text) as The Eutaw Street Hooligans become a household name and recruit new members. This past week the Eutaw Street Hooligans made it out to 3 games in-a-row; a no-promotion Wednesday, Bleachers & Boog’s and the always popular Floppy Hat Night (because nothing says ‘cool’ like limp headgear). While the O’s decided it would be a great idea to produce an average of two (2) runs over the three game stretch, bigger things were happening in the stands…sort of.
Wednesday, June 10. It was a misty and fairly uneventful evening at the yard. We attempted to heckle Ichiro in between all his stretching. This, of course, proved to be difficult due to the language barrier. (Japanese speak not do I.) Mariners 4, Orioles 1. L.
Thursday, June 11. Being a Bleacher’s & Boog’s Thursday it would seem natural to sit in the bleachers and eat Boog’s meat. We did neither. However, Noah’s Pretzels provided our row with a complimentary pretzel for accomplishing a great achievement – Fan of the Game. From this moment on, the Orioles would feed off of our excitement and confirm that their bats were still not working. Branyan, on the other hand, hit a ball to (give or take an inch) the moon. Mariners 6, Orioles 3. L.
Friday, June 12. Floppy Bat Hat Night! But, more importantly $6 Sit Wherever You’d Like Night. Actually, we promote sitting wherever you’d like every night, but we save $3 with an ID from years past on these particular occasions. Floppy hats were given to the first 25,000 fans over 21, leaving 21,000 hats for Petey Angelos. The highlight of this evening was, by far, Luke Scott swinging…a lightsaber. Braves 7. Orioles 2. L.
Then, came the weekend and the birds turned it up to 11, literally. Hopefully, they can keep it up against the Mets, but preferably the Phillies ( June 20th) because our seats at Citizens Bank weren’t $6.
