Because anything's better right now than talking about what's happening on the diamond, here's the Mascot Hall of Fame nomination video for the Oriole Bird. It's fun viewing for longtime Birds fans as it features a lot of Memorial Stadium footage.
The Bird's always there to cheer us up. We need him now more than ever.
See if you can spot the footage from a Baltimore Blast game and a quick shot of Wild Bill Hagy.
