A jube with a view

"Baltimore Orioles center fielder Endy Chavez #9, Baltimore Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis #21 and Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones #10 celebrate after defeating the Toronto Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland on April 24, 2012. The Orioles won, 2-1, beating the Blue Jays for a third time in four games over a 12-day span."

Professional sports rarely end with an epic celebration. Not to mention, this early in the season, it almost seems pointless to jump, scream and shout unless it was a last second win over a known rival or top seed.

With that said, everyone is still looking for some sort of jubilation by the winning team.

Tuesday night there were no walk-offs or grand performances as a fierce pitching dual took center stage. A, 2-1, O's victory and a crash into the outfield wall during a home run was all that visually told the outcome of the game. Thus is baseball sometimes when pitchers dominate the outcome.

Much like most games, I get restless in the photo wells after about the third inning, so I ventured to higher ground.

I think everyone that has ever photographed the Orioles has shot this frame in some variation, but I liked it loose and from above - a jube with a view - per say.
