So it's way past midnight and I still haven't packed for my 7:30 a.m. flight to Tampa Bay. Heck, I can sleep in the offseason. The Orioles sealed their first postseason bid in 15 years tonight, capping a bizarre and surreal day, one that most long-suffering O's fans will remember for years. The image that will last in my mind is one of the Orioles players giving high fives on the field after their 6-3 win over Boston, then staying on the field to watch the final inning of the Angels-Rangers afternoon game.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette's message to season-ticket holders was a clear one: "We still have work to do. " Duquette and Orioles manager Buck Showalter kicked off this year's annual Orioles FanFest with a question-and-answer session for season-ticket holders. Duquette said he's still trying to upgrade the club's pitching staff and would like to add a veteran starting pitcher by free agency. Meanwhile, fans at Baltimore Convention Center were asking whether the club was going to make an announcement on a signing -- the team has shown interest in veteran right-handers A.J. Burnett and Bronson Arroyo -- at FanFest.

Orioles fans, I don't blame you for being upset. Here we are, the second week of January, and the silence from the Warehouse is deafening. Let's review what we have so far. No major moves to make this team better in 2013. No progress in the hunt for a big bat in the middle of the order. No signing of a much-needed first baseman. (Adam LaRoche, we hardly knew you.) Instead, what we get from the Orioles front-office is the sound of crickets. Here's the team's big off-season move so far: they re-signed Nate McLouth to play left field.

Orioles fans were still bubbling Saturday morning, many clad in orange while going for their morning jog or cup of joe, basking in the baseball glow that took more than a decade to shine on the city. "It's been rejuvenating the city," said James Parsons , 33, of Locust Point as he and his family took a walk to the Fort Avenue Starbucks. "It's been rough because it's been 15 years since they've been relevant. " Parson and his wife, Sarah, chuckled as her 1-year-old son Brandon, bedecked in Orioles gear played with his hat. The couple was just discussing baby-sitting plans as they look forward to using the Yankees game tickets they secured.

Give yourselves a standing ovation, Orioles fans. You know ... O-R-I-O ... You reclaimed your territory last night. In a way, you convinced everybody that the talk of a "rivalry" between the two nearby baseball teams is a bit of a stretch. On the other hand, if that wasn't a statement of support for your team against an outside aggressor, then what is? What could have been a testy little faceoff between loyalists and rebel defectors to the south turned into possibly the best Orioles home crowd in several years.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Greg Knox was shirtless, with his chest painted orange and black, the last time the Orioles were in a playoff game, the finale of the 1997 American League Championship Series. Knox, originally from Towson and a Calvert Hall graduate, was 23 back then. He could act a little crazy, walk around without a shirt in mid-40s temperatures and chalk it up to being a fan. Now he's 38, a financial trader living in Austin, Texas, with a wife, a 2-year-old daughter and a son on the way. These days, being a crazy Orioles fan means blowing off his wife's obstetrician appointment and driving three-plus hours to see his favorite childhood team play the Texas Rangers in Friday's AL wild-card game.

It may be the season for ghosts, goblins and people dressed up like their favorite Orioles, but Buck and Angela Showalter came to the third-annual KidsPeace Trick-or-Trot 5K on Saturday dressed as themselves - Mr. and Mrs. Sporting News American League Manager of the Year. Buck received that honor earlier in the week for the terrific job he did leading the surprising Orioles into the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. Angela probably deserves even more credit for navigating a successful family life while keeping two homes on a crazy baseball schedule and putting any extra time into charitable endeavors like the one they helped host in Canton.

Spending summer evenings with Orioles announcers Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer is a pleasure only afforded to us locals, but a new poll shows that few teams have the kind of respect and love for their broadcasters that Orioles fans do. The good folks at Awful Announcing polled their readership , and determined that the MASN broadcast team of Thorne and Palmer, along with fill-ins Jim Hunter and Mike Bordick, are the third-best local announce...

When the Toronto Blue Jays overtook the New York Yankees for second place earlier this week and then won their game Wednesday night, the Blue Jays guaranteed that the Orioles couldn't capture the American League East crown until Monday at the earliest. That ruined a delicious scenario for the Orioles this weekend, potentially sweeping the Yankees at Camden Yards to clinch their first division title in 17 years. You would have needed a jumbo, battery-charged broom for that one. As it stands, the most the Orioles can do this weekend is eliminate the Yankees from the divisional race, which, for an organization that has been in the deep shadows of the Bronx Bombers for decades, is a solid consolation prize.

Here's a comforting thought for Orioles fans who spend their winters rooting for the University of Maryland men's basketball team: The Orioles' top new reliever is a Dookie, a right-hander who never won an ACC game, but proudly recalls his days as a member of the Cameron Crazies. "We slept out for a Carolina game my freshman year," Mike Trombley said. "It was pouring all night. You've got 2,000 kids sleeping out in the rain. We didn't have a tent. We were just out, partying all night.
