Ohlie's Orange Army Campaign

I told you earlier that this week was going to be a busy week. Tonight begins yet another campaign to start the 2010 baseball season. I've decided to begin the Ohlie's Orange Army campaign.

Why orange, when Pittsburgh's colors are black and gold? Well, the color orange, one of the official colors of Princeton, was chosen as a way to recognize Ohlendorf's intelligence and hard work that has allowed him to be where he is today. Unlike the Vote for Romulo campaign of last year, I will not be tracking this campaign on this blog. Instead, I'd like to reveal the OFFICIAL Ohlie's Orange Army blog. This blog will track Ohlendorf throughout the 2010 season, as well as the success, or failure, of the campaign. The goal of my campaign is simple. I want to see PNC Park filled with fans in orange shirts every time Ross Ohlendorf pitches in 2010, especially on Opening Day, when Ohlendorf will be the pitcher that day.

So, with as much fanfare as 2009's Vote for Romulo campaign, this is the beginning of the Ohlie's Orange Army campaign. A Facebook group will soon follow.

Let's Go Bucs!


  1. I have heard rumors of a rival gang which plans to wear all black to games this season. I may or may not be in this gang. Perhaps we could form a truce, i.e. bringing orange shirts which we wear only when Ohlendorf is on the mound while sticking with black for offense.

  2. I think the Pirates should just be run by bloggers to begin with

  3. B.S. - We need to sit down and have a talk about this truce you speak of.

    Perry - If bloggers don't run the Pirates, we should at least run their promotions department.
