You’ve probably heard this excuse a hundred times. “The dog ate my homework.”
Well, that hit close to home for one Orioles fan. Inside his Catonsville, Maryland home, there’s a dog who likes to chew.
“I heard a truck pull up; didn’t think much of it. A couple minutes later it dawned on me what that truck was,” Karl Breslaw said.
It was FedEx delivering his precious Orioles playoff and World Series tickets.
“I went outside and I found basically this, scattered all over the place.”
Karl’s 7-month-old, 80 pound Burmese Mountain dog named Fezzik got the tickets first, chewing away at them like they were a t-bone steak.
“I guess when that friendly man in the blue shirt put this new toy over the railing, it was irresistible.”
The good news is, while the World Series tickers are damaged at the top corners, the car codes and seat locations are intact. So Karl, a long time O’s fan, will get to go to the games if the O’s get to baseball’s biggest stage.
“The first time I’ve ever had any package damaged in any way, shape, or form. It had to be a playoff ticket; it couldn’t have been my wife ordering something mundane from Amazon, it had to be my playoff tickets.”
Guess Fezzik was hungry to see the O’s in the playoffs too.
