The O's season is over, but there is still plenty to talk about.

Welp,it's the first day of the off season. We'll no doubt have plenty to talk about over the next few months. At least, I hope so. The last off season after the Orioles were in the playoffs I had to go to the library or computer lab in my dorm to access the internet, so I'm pretty much in uncharted territory here.

It's still strange to me that there won't be an Orioles game today. It was starting to feel like they'd play forever, and I'd just spend every night tense and not getting enough sleep.

Did anyone go down to Camden Yards to meet the team upon their return? If so, please share!
