My first game at the Ballpark was an Oriole game. After the O's lost in extra innings, as I walked to my car, I pickup truck full of rednecks pulled up next to me to taunt. I responded that I'm an Orioles fan, what more could they do to me?
I think it was two years ago when Adam "Not Pac-Man" Jones hit a grand slam in the 9th to force extras. I watched that game with my wife, who went on a profanity laced tirade. When she finished, I just stood up and did the slow clap. She left me at the game and I had to take a cab home.
Totally worth it.
And I've worn Orioles gear in Fenway and Yankee Stadium. The Ballpark don't scare me.
Baloo, Mrs. Cocks is a tOSU fan and I of course am an LSU fan. So we had a similar situation in January of 2008. It really changes the dynamic of the house. You can't make jokes about really anything that you normally would, because it's somehow gonna be taken offensively.
