I'm 22 and live in North Eastern Pennsylvania and I wear an O's shirt, hoodie, pull over, hat, etc. pretty much every day. I've been wearing them for years and every now and then people (usually older guys like 35+ years old) would say something to me about them. For the past few months everyday someone says something to me either about how good the O's are or how much they hope the O's win the East and how much they hate the Yankees. Most people around here are Phillies or Yankees fans. I constantly get "hey the O's won again last night" or something along those lines.
I have to work Thursday/Friday/Saturday evenings so I always listen to the games on At Bat 12 and don't say a word to anyone during the game. I watch the games Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday. On Tuesdays I have a class from 6-8:30 so I record the game and start watching it when I get home.
I was always a nerd with the Orioles though so even if they were 20 games under .500 I'd still be watching or listening every night. My dad has had the MLB package for as long as I can remember and as a kid we always watched them and as I grew up whenever I was home during a game I would watch them.
This is also the first time in my life I can remember them winning. I remember the Maier incident because it was all over the paper, news, and my dad was furious. I don't remember them playing the Indians in the playoffs or anything else from my youth other than things like Ripken, Mussina, Alomar spitting on an umpire, Brady hitting 50 HR, etc.
