Good morning, Birdland!

It’s been more than a week since the Orioles last won a game. That’s a long time. The earth keeps spinning, and things change. Here what has happened since the O’s last earned a win:

-Game of Thrones ended.

-People have freaked out over the ending of Game of Thrones.

-The Golden State Warriors qualified for the NBA Finals.

-The new live action Aladdin movie was released.

-The British Prime Minister resigned.

-This weird thing happened.

-My dad had a birthday.

-Gas prices have probably changed in some way

Wow, time moves so far. Think back to what you were doing on May 17. We were all so young and innocent!
