Stressful times for The Oriole Bird

BALTIMORE – Not since Ripken have the Orioles had anything to crow about, but it appears that The Oriole Bird could be the next Hall of Famer.

The Oriole Bird is a finalist for induction in the Mascot Hall of Fame. Fan voting just ended at the end of August and it appears an announcemnet is due soon. Must be a stressful time. The Oriole Bird is far more entertaining than anyone in uniform.
