Not everyone loves it when Orioles fans cheer “O!” during the National Anthem at Verizon Center. Such as Nats fans and The Washington Post’s Mike Wise (just search for the words “tainted gene pool”). Also sharing that sentiment are these Cubs fans at Wrigley Field, who first were confused, then outraged by the shouting.
Yes. What. Was. That?
Well here’s audio from The Baltimore Sun’s Eduardo A. Encina of the cheer. Maybe this is why they were so outraged. It was deafening.

In total, 33,761 fans came out to the park today, many of which were O’s fans, such as the guy wearing a Natty Boh shirt who caught Nelson Cruz’s home run and refused to throw the ball back. Pretty cool.

Easily half of the bleachers are Orioles fans. Welcome to Wrigley and sorry you live in Baltimore. pic.twitter.com/1Ug6rHkZH0
