Good News: O's Fans Hate Us Less Than Empire

These days, you take what you can get. As reigning 2013 World Series Champions, you have to think that fans of most of the other 29 teams despise us. Fortunately, the New York Yankees exist to pick up the hate burden for us. According to a poll in The Baltimore Sun, a solid majority of Orioles fans (59%) hate The Evil Ones more than they hate us (41%).  Of course, part of this dynamic may be due to the fact that one of Baltimore's signature franchise players—Brian Roberts—recently fled to The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. I think we can all relate to that. So, the next time you get shouted down at Camden Yards, know that they'd rather be shouting down a fan of The Pinstriped Posers.
