Celebrities at the World Series and an O’s WS question

First things first - a fair warning: this post obviously isn’t 100% focused on the Orioles. Although, we all probably enjoy the idea of one day tracking celebrities at an O’s-(Insert opponent of choice here) World Series--if O’s fans will even be able to think about anything else when that day arrives! So this might be a little bit of a non-Orioles Buzz entry, but

Be the first to greet the O’s in Sarasota

Can’t wait for Spring Training? Catch an early showing of the O’s in Sarasota at the Orioles Family FanFest at Ed Smith Stadium on Saturday, November 14 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. Fans can expect to see Dave Trembley, Adam Jones, Nolan Reimold, Brad Bergesen, Jim Johnson, and Jim Palmer throughout the afternoon, which will feature autograph sessions, O’s giveaways, fan forums, a variety of

Where is Birdland?

Is it a place with an address - like 2110 Eutaw Street? Or is it an idea, an expression used to tell people that this (wherever you are) is Oriole fan territory? It’s both in a way. Oriole Park at Camden Yards is certainly “Birdland.” It’s the city center of all that is Oriole fandom, but Birdland is bigger than merely the Yard. Birdland reaches

A little more MacPhail

A recent article in Dickinson Magazine featured a particular alumnus of special interest to Orioles fans. If you didn’t already know that O’s President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail (along with many in his family) graduated from Dickinson College, the magazine feature touches on the MacPhail family’s unshakable connections to the college, the game of baseball, and the Orioles. The article’s author, Sherri Kimmel, adeptly

Jack-O-lanterns, emphasis on the “O!”

It’s likely inevitable that the weather will turn warm again for at least one more weekend before winter settles in, but the cold weather came on fast this year, didn’t it? But with it comes that time of year when Starbucks puts out its Pumpkin Spice latte, the amazing cook in the office brings in delicious pumpkin bread, and you see the bright orange faces

Miscellaneous Matusz (Updated with answers)

With a long offseason ahead, Brian Matusz’s presence on the mound isn’t a huge question mark after a pretty successful first season in the big leagues. But below are a few questions related to the O’s young southpaw that might surprise or even stump you. See if you can figure out any of the following from Matusz’s Q&A at the ESPN Zone back in September

Let’s hear from the female fans

Recently, the Orioles Buzz featured a call to fans for their best promotion ideas for the 2010 season. Not only did you O’s fans respond with some great promos, but one fan mentioned how she’d like to see some events focused on bringing women to the ballpark. So, I figured I’d look into what some other clubs have already been doing in that department. Not

Let the Countdown Begin

With the 2009 regular season officially over, baseball fans can take a deep breath after the intense 162-game marathon that is a spring, summer, and fall filled with regular season baseball. But for many fans, it won’t take long to start missing it all over again. So for starters, keep these “MLB Important Dates” in mind and remember that there’s plenty from the baseball realm

Fan Appreciation Weekend features some of the best promos of the season

The last series of the 2009 season is filled with promos and giveaways for fans who come out to the Yard for the last three games of O’s baseball this weekend. So no matter how many games you’ve already attended, no matter the weather (the forecast is 70s and sunny though!), and no matter how packed your schedule is this time of year, see if
