The game between the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Thursday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. was briefly delayed due to an alarming number of bees swarming about the ballpark.

Order was restored when a grounds crew member dressed up as Winnie the Pooh made off with the bees’ hive and ran off into a nearby forest clearing.

No, actually, the grounds crew was involved, but they simply removed the swarm, presumably via some kind of bee-controlling device that sends some kind of signal to their bee brains instructing the insects to vamoose or the queen bee gets it. Or maybe they just swooshed them away with a really big broom. The report from SI doesn’t indicate exactly how it was accomplished.

This is certainly not the first time bees have interfered with sporting event. In May of 2012, a game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies at Coors Field was delayed by bees, as was a Brazilian soccer game in 2011.

Definitely not the “bees' knees,” if you catch my drift. I’m guessing that you do.

The Angels bullpen is a disaster

There is a lot wrong with the LA Angels.

Manny Machado Isn’t Bad for 20 Years Old Either

MLB's Best Team on Paper

Are Albert Pujols and the Angels the "best team on paper"? (Credit) Fans are continuously told that what a team has on paper means nothing once it takes the field.
