Proud O's Fan

Hey, all.   I've been lurking for a year or more and thought I should come out into the open.   I've figured out my furtive Erik Bedard thing isn't working.

I have a sticker on my van says "Proud Orioles Fan."    For years (old van) I've wondered why I have it, since there's been so little to be proud of.   Lately I realized I keep it on there because I'm proud to be a fan, regardless of the team on the field (current fluke set well aside).   If you're still an Orioles fan after the last decade it says something about loyalty, long memory, and perseverant hope tempered by a taste for good black humor (not to say voyeurism around trainwrecks, it's black humor, really it is, it is).    Over the course of my lurk, I've admired these qualities in the regular posters.  I'm glad to get to know ya.

I'm certain to spout old baseball, pre-SABRmetric myths from time to time and tend to forget to take off my rosy shades when evaluating talent.  Apologies in advance. 

I also really love parentheses (I don't know why).
