Oh today, how I love thee. Let me count the ways. I got 13 players' autographs at Orioles Fanfest today. Kevin Millar was the most affable, joking with me when I teased him about his cayenne peppers diet and confessing he's back on the "two burgers a day" plan. Luke Scott, when I spoke with him later in the day, said Millar "whimped out" on the cayenne plan. Brian Roberts is as small as you'd think, and Cabrera is bigger than you imagine when you are standing right beside him. Aubrey Huff was wearing a shirt that said "I love Baltimore" to, of course, make up for calling my hometown a "horses***" city. When I told him I appreciated his sense of humor, he said "somebody has to." Chris Roberson signed my buddy's Phillies hat but begged him not to tell anyone saying, "I just got here, man - I don't want to get fired!" And Guthrie told me while signing my baseball card that he's guaranteeing victory on Monday vs. the Rays. That's a guarantee I love to hear. I also met Larry Sheets and got to pose beside the 1983 World Series trophy for a photo. Awesome! And my Boog's BBQ lunch while watching Adam Jones and the rest of the team take batting practice was the icing on the cake. The new scoreboard looks great, and the Yard itself makes me feel happier than ever. Even Trembley said during his "State of the Orioles" address that the place just makes him feel great. Then, to top it all off, right after leaving Fan Fest I walked right across the street to see the Blast beat the Chicago Storm. After the game, I met several of the players at DSX, including Lookingland, who is a fellow Loyola Blakefield and Saint Ursula alum. Small world. Perfect day! Tomorrow the Nat's season opener, and Monday back to Birdland for Opening Day! I told Gu3 I predicted a 2-1 O's victory, and I have total faith it will happen. See you at the Yard! -B
