Three Greatest Parts of 2011
2011 was obviously a disaster of a season for the Orioles. However three things were born in this disastrous season that made me oh so happy:
1. The Blooper that made me laugh all night:
This play will forever stick in my mind. It happened in the Orioles very first series of the year down in Tampa. Johnny Damon, I just want to take the time to thank you for the greatest laugh I had the entire year.
2. Strop Sign
The birth of the Strop sign happened once the Orioles traded Mike Gonzalez for Pedro Strop. Most Orioles fans rejoiced because they had traded away Gonzalez. I rejoiced because we got the Strop Sign in return. I am prepared to tweet this image every time he K's someone in 2012.
Last but not least, the ultimate part of the 2011 season. It was the very last game of the season, when Robert "Swagdino" Andino and the Orioles knocked the Boston Red Sox out of the playoffs. That was a great moment, and it allowed the Orioles to end the season on a strong note. But then Fangraphs posted this image, making it that much better of a moment.
I hope 2012 has a few hilarious and awesome parts like the three above.
