This blog post over at Camden Chat rules. At Saturday’s Washington Capitals hockey game at the Verizon Center, several area mascots were brought onto the ice for inter-period entertainment, but apparently, the Oriole Bird was singularly humiliated as part of a deliberate plot to shame Baltimore. Or at least that’s how Camden Chat’s Steve Damerell would have it. And I honestly can’t tell if he’s joking or not.

Included among the Oriole Birds many humiliations are the following: First, during an exhibition match between a kids’ team and the mascots, the Oriole Bird was one of the few mascots not wearing skates, which contributed to his or her failing to stop a “critical goal.” The Oriole Bird was further disgraced when it was “sentenced to the intern-like duty” of throwing Capitals T-shirts to the crowd. Later, the Oriole Bird got inside a “giant hamster ball” and was “forced” to race the former Capitals mascot.

Me, I’m scratching my head trying to come up with an action I would consider unbecoming of a grown person in a bird costume.
