To the Yankees fans in the office, I often quote Bill Simmons by saying that rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for the house in Blackjack. They always come back with, "Yeah? Then what is rooting for the Orioles like?" I usually tell them that it is like playing the slots -- boring with no payoff. I guess now at least you may see a fight if you watch...
In response to:
Two O's nearly come to blows
Angry that Melvin Mora took off for third with two outs in the ninth inning while he was at bat, Jay Payton, who made the game's final out, had words with the Orioles' third baseman outside the dugout. The two were kept apart by third base coach Juan Samuel, but the argument continued outside the clubhouse as Mora and Payton needed to be restrained from going after each other.
