Happy Memorial Day, everybody! If you are serving, or have served, in the armed forces, thank you! I know, it's cliche and some people don't really want the thanks. But really, what you do is a big deal and you are very much appreciated.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy some Orioles baseball on this fine May day. That is, of course, if Mother Nature doesn't ruin it. According to weather.com, there is 90 percent chance of precipitation at 3 p.m., but after that the odds go down, so I'm sure we will get all nine innings in eventually.
The O's are coming off a series win against the Indians. A win over the Red Sox today puts them back into a tie with the Boston outfit for first place in the AL East. And, if you are lucky enough to be going to today's game, you get a SWEET Memorial Day t-shirt.
On top of that, the Birds are keeping with the MLB theme of matching their uniforms to the holiday at hand. For Memorial Day they are going with camouflage, of course!
Remembering all those lost too soon, so we all can enjoy the luxury of freedom. I Thank You today and everyday. pic.twitter.com/5RZKVl4Z78— Zach Britton (@zbritton) May 30, 2016
