It wasn't until today that I realized the Orioles stopped playing the Orioles Magic song when taking the field after Opening Day. And they haven't lost since eliminating it.
Players hated it because they didn't think it fired up the crowd or the team - they were making fun of it in spring training - but the song was blaring in the clubhouse today after the Orioles scored three runs in the ninth to win, 3-2. Kevin Millar cranked it up on an iPod while eating his post-game meal. He waited until the media was allowed inside. And then the fun really began.
Millar began clapping his hands to it, keeping the beat to a song that used to be ridiculed, and teammates joined it. At one point, Millar, Jeremy Guthrie, George Sherrill and Brian Burres were slamming their hands on the table in unison. They enjoyed it so much, they played it twice.
If you hadn't noticed, they now take the field to Saliva's "Click Click Boom."
