Okay, so I’ve been away from blogging about the O’s, and literally, I’ve been away because I have moved! Yes, I have moved to a different county in Maryland, and onto a very different chapter in my life, but not to bore you about me and life’s transitions … baseball is still happening, so let’s get right to it!
About 2 weeks ago, I bought a brand new 2015 65″ UHD Samsung flatscreen and it looks beautiful, mounted on the living room wall in my new place. On my flatscreen, baseball looks beautiful ( and sounds great with the Samsung soundbar and wireless subwoofer!). Every pore and bead of sweat looks like … well, pores and beads of sweat! The color, clarity and crispness of UHD ( 4K tv ), is so thoroughly detailed! However, while a lot of people enjoy UHD for it’s stunning display of seamlessly fast action sequences, I love it for slow action shots of high definition color and clarity. Right now, I am thinking about how Birds of Paradise would look on my new flatscreen. Have you ever seen the National Geographic documentary Birds of Paradise? Have you ever seen such rare, exotic beauty… Such lavish colors? How about the humorously creative ways these beautiful birds attract females? The mating dances and body movements of these birds are unlike anything I have ever seen on this side of the planet, and 4k tv brings it all the more to life. If you want to see birds like you’ve never seen, you should view the DVD of the National Geographic documentary Birds of Paradise or watch it from Netflix or YouTube, wherever you can get a hold of it!
…But what about OUR Birds …the Birds of Baltimore, on this here side of planet? What is to say about our beloved hometeam as it struggles to find its footing? Sure, our Birds are below the 500 mark in the standings, but it’s early in the season still, and the O’s are no stranger to change. They have been through losing players to trade-off deals and injuries, they have been through strokes of bad luck ( think about last year’s American League Championship), they have seen it all, but have always managed to get back in the game; so, why should this year be any different?
They have the heart, they have the drive, they have Buck, they have the fans, and they have the team! Look at how the Orioles basically blew the Red Sox out of the ballpark with that 18-7 win! Not saying that the O’s have to put up such big numbers to prove they still have a team, but just saying that the team can still find ways to pack a beautifully, colorful punch even when struggling to find the right dance moves again!
Birds of Paradise? Maybe. Birds of Baltimore? Definitely.
Until the next time … Let’s Go O’s!
