Currently, I am half working on web updates and half watching our Toronto Blue Jays in playoff ball! I was the hugest fan as kid until I went to New York for fashion school and didn't have as much access. Wasn't able to have the game on the radio in one ear while at the ballpark or watching on tv for every single game of the season. We used to vacation at Spring training in Dunedin. My sister and I have boxes and boxes of souvenirs and paraphernalia, much of it autographed by the 80's and 90's team members. I remember euphorically celebrating both World Series wins in '92 and '93 in the streets. We were obsessed! So I am super thrilled as most Torontonians are to see our Jays return to the post season after so many years.
Yesterday was Aunt L.'s birthday. She always takes her birthday off of work every year. So a few hours before the game, she suggested that we try to get some tickets to Game 1 of the ALDS. Such a great environment in the dome, even way up in the last row of the 500s. Cheers were deafening and the sold-out crowd was energized. Loved watching them raise the American League East Champions banner!
Jays took a loss yesterday. Crossing our fingers, along with the rest of the sea of blue in this town, for a healthy comeback in the remainder of the series! GO JAYS GO!!
