Good morning, Camden Chatters. I'm feeling a little gloomy this morning after last night's lost. Not to go full-Mark here, but now I have visions of them being swept to seven games back and unable to recover. But I'll try to push that to the back of my mind and be optimistic about the return (hopefully for good) of Kevin Gausman.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You do not have a single current or former Oriole as your birthday buddy. You do share your birthday with the excellent Alex Trebek, who once spoke the words "Camden Chat." Other birthday buddies include young Prince George as well as Danny Glover, who is probably waking up this morning thinking that he is too old for this shit.

Nothing much of note happened today in Orioles history, so I'll just leave you with video the aforementioned Alex Trebek awesomeness:
