Video: An Orioles fan's version of 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails

March 10, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Orioles fans, you can probably relate to this.

I was sent a link to an excellent video summing up what it has been like to be an Orioles fan over the past 13 years, and it comes in the form of an acoustic parody of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails.

In the video, which can be found on, a guy named Bernie busts out the acoustic guitar and belts out lines such as "A crushing losing streak goes on and on, it never ends" and "Any kind of hope will be gone after spring."

In the background, you can see a sad picture of Sammy Sosa, a newspaper clipping from the Mitchell Report, a shot of the scoreboard from the 30-3 game and that infamous photo of Rafael Palmeiro pointing at Congress.

Trust me, this video is worth a look if you can handle the pain:
