This fan is like a bird, but he won't fly away (from Oriole Park)

There are other Birdmen -- this one and this one and this one, for instance -- but Baltimore's George A. Fuhrer wants you to know he is the real Birdman.

The Orioles superfan said he was "tickled" to see an excited, packed house at Oriole Park on Sunday for the team's first ALDS game in 15 years. While he hopes to do his thing for as long as possible this October, he pointed out that he's a Camden Yards staple, postseason or not. Coming to the park and cheering on the O's -- in his magnificent Baltimore accent -- is "my everyday," the Birdman said.
