Opening Ceremonies

Oriole Park is not exactly standing room only today. The upper level bleachers in left field would certainly allow you to stretch out.

Still, it’s a festive atmosphere and what the attendance lacks in numbers it makes up for in enthusiasm. A great reception for the players as they were introduced.

Well, not for all of them.

Aubrey Huff was heartily booed by about half the fans. Not just because he nowhere near lived up to his salary in 2007, but his comments about Baltimore being a “@&^#@ town”.

I looked over to Cal Ripken Jr. (nice to see Cal here with his daughter and some of her friends) just after Huff’s intro and he gave me a look conveying, “yeah, that’s about right”.

One other note, the new high def video screen in centerfield is unbelievable. Maybe now I can convince my wife we need to upgrade. I wouldn’t even demand a screen that stands 25 feet tall.
