“I wonder if there are any pilots?”

Yahoo! Sports – A plane carrying the Baltimore Orioles made an unexpected landing on Sunday night and it wasn’t so the playoff-bound team could restock on beer and champagne.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the team’s charter flight made an emergency landing in Jacksonsville, Fla., after smoke was spotted coming out of an oven in the kitchen. The move was said to be precautionary and no injuries were reported. The Orioles were expected to continue their trip to St. Petersburg where they’ll play the Tampa Bay Rays for the last series of the regular season.

The league’s most interesting playoff race was almost decided by a faulty plane this weekend.

Serious question – is there a worse way to win a division than having your competitor get “We Are Marshall”ed? Especially if you are the Yankees. The NY Post would be running a story about how the head mechanic on the crew being a Yankee fan in about 14 seconds.
