The Toronto Blue Jays
As you may or may not know, I love sports. I'm a big hockey fan and follow the Toronto Maple Leafs. I enjoy football and the CFL. I cheer for the Hamilton Tiger Cats who would have won this season but will now lose because they lost their terrific quarterback to injury. But, of course, who isn't cheering for the Blue Jays.
During the early 90s, I lived in Toronto and worked in a great law firm. My boss often gave me tickets so I got to a lot of games in great seats. I was there when they won the World Series in 1992 but was in Australia when they won in 1993.
I love going to live sports games. I've been to lots of baseball games, some Ticat games, but never to an NHL game. Hamilton hosted the AHL farm team for Montreal. It was fun to watch those games but it isn't the NHL.
Baseball games are a lot of fun. I like sitting on the field along the third base line. I don't know why other than because I used to play third base. One of the most beautiful things is the throw from third base across the diamond to first base to get the batter out.
So, the Jays are playing great right now. The whole team is working great together. It's not just Bautista, Donaldson and Encarnacion hitting home runs but Martin, Pillar, Smoak and Revere are getting them too. Their defence is spot on though I think Bautista is a little weak in right field. But he hits home runs so has to be in the line-up.
It's been 22 years since the Jays won the World Series. They are definitely headed that way and have a good shot at it. It would be wonderful for Toronto to have a winning team. The city will go crazy.
Only a few games left, then post season. I've been watching every Jay game and will continue.
