I'm totally gonna admit it. I cried.

Since I was on the Orioles.com video page, getting an, ahem, MILF screenshot for the Texas recap thread, I decided to watch the 2008 "Orioles Magic" video again. And it totally hit me hard this time. I mean, I got completely choked up.

Like, right around the time they showed Hagy and sang "there's a thundering roar from 34", I literally started blinking away tears. And then they cut to some footage of Eddie and some of the other 80s Orioles goofing around in the same way as these guys do.

I know we'll be out of contention in September. I know that half the team will be gone by then, and that there's more work to do.

But damn if I haven't loved this first half of baseball. This is the best July 4 weekend in many a year. I LOVE this team. I'm wearing my Oriole jacket with PRIDE in NYC again (well, not when it's this hot). 

As usual, MLB shoots themselves in the foot by not giving an obvious direct link. But I think this link should work for you. If it doesn't, here's a link to the page the video is on.

Watch it again and try not to get a little verklempt.
