And so the Magical Baseball Orioles Season Ends

The Orioles lost to the Yankees in game five, the deciding game, of the American League Division Series (ALDS) last night.

Although it pains me to write it--congrats to the Yankees. I won't be cheering for you to win the series, but congrats anyway. I know the maligned Orioles from Baltimore stretched you in ways you never imagined possible. There was the home run or is it a foul ball home field call--but that's baseball.

Effectively, my baseball season is over. Yes, I will still cheer for the Giants. Personally, I hope the Yankees lose to Detroit, because my second favorite team is whoever is playing the Yankees.

I'm looking forward to the off season, and Spring Training, and the hope for next year.

One team had to lose--despite the best efforts of our school system to teach otherwise--one team wins and the other loses.

That's life. That's sports.

That is why we keep score.

Thank you to the Orioles. Each one of the, all season long. It was a lot of fun and it was downright exciting. The Orioles Magic is finally alive again.
