Two bar openings in two days. Must be early in the offseason. Couldn't let this one pass, though. Not with the World Series starting tonight. I know some of you are cringing when you hear “World Series,” lamenting about what might have been. Well, don't. The Orioles had a season that exceeded everyone's expectations. Be thankful that they went as far as they did. And don't let their early exit stop you from watching this October Classic. I know I'm biased, but the World Series will always be my favorite Reality TV Series.

For Nancy and Bob Reigle, the call came down to America's Colonial showplace versus the Orioles in the playoffs. "We have wanted to go to Williamsburg for some time," said Nancy Reigle, a retired teacher in the Baltimore County public schools who had scheduled a trip to begin Oct. 20 - the day before the start of the World Series. "I was keeping an eye on the schedules, and then I noticed that the American League has home field advantage [for the World Series], and that they could be playing in Baltimore that Tuesday and Wednesday.

We're taking a break from thinking about Manny Machado's knee (again) and are considering the teams that are still playing baseball. So grab a stool. I'll slide you a full glass. And, in turn, you give me your opinion on which teams make it to the 2013 World Series. I went 3-for-4 in my division series predictions. The only misstep I had was the Oakland A's-Detroit Tigers dogfight. I called the right number of games (5), but had the wrong team emerging. Now that the Tigers have advanced, they have the unenviable task of having to go to Boston to start another draining set of games.

Facing a daunting 0-2 deficit in the American League Championship Series, the Orioles will need more than a little luck to make it to the World Series. They need some magic. For more than three decades, the team's penchant for comebacks has been captured in a song many fans still sing today. "Orioles Magic (Feel It Happen)" has accompanied the O's through the heyday of Wild Bill Hagy, through a 1983 World Series championship, through Cal Ripken Jr. 's 2,632-consecutive-game streak and through a 14-season playoff drought that ended in 2012.

University of Maryland, Baltimore County, the defending champion in the "World Series" of college chess, finished second in the most recent tournament. UMBC placed second in the Pan American Intercollegiate Team Chess Championships that concluded Dec. 30 in Milwaukee. In its sixth and final match, the team earned a draw against the University of Texas-Brownsville, one of its arch rivals. However, by finishing in the top four, the Retrievers qualify for another prestigious college chess event, the President's Cup, held in April in Tyson's Corner, Va., which is considered the "Final Four" of college chess.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

An advisory group that advocates for MARC riders in Maryland has called on state officials and local transit operators to plan for special rail service between Baltimore and Washington in the event the Orioles make it to the World Series. The MARC Riders Advisory Council wrote a letter Thursday to Gov. Martin O'Malley — and sent copies to the Maryland Transit Administration, railroad CSX Transportation and several Maryland legislators — calling the lack of such planning unacceptable.

Mike Boddicker has a World Series ring from the Orioles, whom the right-hander helped win it all in 1983. On Friday, however, he'll wear a Kansas City Royals T-shirt to watch the start of the American League Championship Series. "I bleed Royals blue," Boddicker said by phone from his home in Overland Park, Kan., 20 minutes from Kauffman Stadium. "This city has gone nuts. We've waited 29 years for a playoff team. These people have been so loyal for so long; I'll root for the city because it deserves this.

He grew up not far from Baltimore, wore No. 8 in Little League to emulate Cal Ripken Jr. , and has many fond memories of his days as a die-hard Orioles fan. But if Scott Sharp makes it to Camden Yards for the American League Championship Series, he won't be wearing a speck of orange or black. Those colors faded long ago for the Sykesville native. Sharp, 41, is the Kansas City Royals' director of player development, and he's quite happy to be sporting royal blue these days as his team prepares to face the Orioles in the ALCS.

The Orioles will play the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series for a berth in the World Series. The two teams will meet in Game 1 on Friday and Game 2 on Saturday at Camden Yards before moving to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City for Games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary). Games 6 and 7 would be at Camden Yards, if they're needed. All game times have yet to be announced. Both teams completed a three-game sweep in the AL Division Series on Sunday. The Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, in the deciding game of their series, while the Royals routed the Los Angeles Angels, 8-3, in Game 3 to advance.

Buck Showalter does not believe he's changed. Let's get that out of the way right off. In fact, he's suspicious of anyone applying a sweeping narrative of transformation to his current success as Orioles manager. "I think I'm just perceived different," he said in a hushed moment outside the clubhouse, three days after his team clinched its first American League East title since 1997. "It's funny how that changes. " The Orioles' 2014 postseason - which begins with Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers - likely represents one of Showalter's last, best chances at managing in his first World Series.

Though there still is a slight chance that the Orioles could overtake the Los Angeles Angels and finish the season with the best record in baseball, it's far more likely that they will be the second seed and will match up against either the Detroit Tigers or Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series. So, who do you think would be a more vulnerable opponent? It might seem obvious, since the Tigers have all those great starting pitchers and the best middle-of-the-lineup hitter in the sport, but there are also reasons to fear the scrappy Royals, who have a terrific bullpen and a very balanced offensive lineup full of guys who find ways to win. Guess that's why they are battling down to the wire for the AL Central title.
