Good game, especially from KC.  I think we still have a shot in the series, but right now, I feel like I don't want to watch any baseball again. Sooooooooooooooo tired.

Who am I kidding, I'll be watching again tomorrow afternoon.

Wait.. There's actually a team called the orioles? Like the cookie?

The Oriole is a kind of bird native to Maryland. You're probably thinking of Oreos. Wink

Ah, oh, ok. Laughing  Well, at least I'm not the only one.  Razz

https://www.google.no/search?q=%22Oriole%22+cookies

I still lke the concept of a sports team named after a cookie, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Well Los Angeles has a hockey team named after a Disney movie, so I guess it's not that much of a stretch.

Oh, the oriole bird is a fine name basis too. Wink



Really, if I was going to support a baseball team, then why not them. And then I could do the oreo joke on anyone not that steady on their American cookie brand names. Would be perfect, really.

Just watched a great game of baseball, well done The Giants.
Will be shouting for KC in the final though.

Don't you think Brandon Crawford of the Giants looks like Kili ?

I wish the O's had won at least one game, but KC played great and I have no hard feelings for them. I like their narrative this season and if the Orioles hadn't been in this I would have started rooting for the Royals by now. Plus, I don't want us to have lost to anyone less than the best. Nod

Good win KC, series tied 1-1 against the Giants.

Q. Why does the pitcher throw in some games , but not in others ?

Q. Does a pinch runner or batter stay in the game or does the guy he replaced come back in ?

My understanding is that pitchers are substituted so frequently because throwing a 90+ mph fastball is murder on your arm muscles and tendons and they need the recovery time.

As for substitutions, there's no limit to how many players you can replace, but once pulled, they can't return for the rest of the game. So a pinch hitter or runner has to take up a defensive position in the next inning in place of the guy he replaced, or else he himself has to be substituted out.

Goddamn Steelers. Sad

Mean Joe Greene is great though. A true legend. Can't believe Pittsburgh didn't retire his number before now, but apparently that's extremely rare for them to do.

So the Dallas Cowboys participated in the NFL's London series for the first time today, and their UK supporters turned out in style. Nod
