Reason Number 7,593 I am a Baltimore Orioles Fan

We've been playing since 2005 with a team logo that features a fucking UPSIDE-DOWN AND BACKWARDS APOSTROPHE.

Somewhere far away, a technical writer is crying.
This small but telling example of illiteracy (and make no mistake, that’s exactly what it is) extends to Baltimore’s alternate cap, BP cap, “portion of the proceeds” cap, and other gear. It’s been part of the team’s official graphics program since 2005, and I’m embarrassed not to have noticed it until now.
Actually that technical writer isn't "far away" so much as "right here typing this blog post". I mean c'mon, even the Oakland Athletics get it right!

Ya'll better snap up as much priceless gear as possible, before the error gets fixed and the supplies dry up.
