I’m Adam. Fly me the #### out of here.
Orioles center fielder Adam Jones caused a bit of a stir Thursday during the pregame Social Media Night event at Camden Yards by behaving in a way that wasn’t particularly sociable.
The star outfielder irked some fans in attendance with short responses during the question-and-answer session, and he earned especially negative attention for saying his favorite place in Baltimore was the airport so he could fly home.
After the game, Jones said he was joking, adding that he likes the airport because it’s where he picks up his friends and family who come to visit and support him.
“I guess my shtick wasn’t appreciated at the time,” Jones said. “But I had a good time. I’ll do it again, and I probably should do it again.”
Jones said his short answers were a result of the event’s timing; it leaked into the final hour before game time.
...One Twitter follower compared Jones’ airport comment to former Orioles designated hitter Aubrey Huff, who used an expletive to describe Baltimore after his first season in town.
“That’s probably absurd to compare it in that narrative,” Jones said.
