An ugly reality, but it is what it is

August 20, 2018

Struggling with writer’s block lately. So….some random thoughts:

  • Several times this season, I’ve found myself saying, “Oh, yeah. I forgot about Tulo.”
  • Josh Donaldson and Aaron Sanchez have both missed a signficant amount of time. If this was 2015-16, we’d freak out. Today, such a fact is met with a shrug. It is what it is.
  • Really? Just six games for Jose Urena?
  • I like Ryan Borucki because he models himself after Mark Buehrle. The kid starts his windup as soon as he gets the sign. He’s going to be a treat (hopefully).
  • There (probably) isn’t a single Jays fan who actually thinks Gibby will be back for 2019.
  • Remember, the Blue Jays are a team in transition. That means – if I can borrow the expression – things will get worse before it gets better. Hang in there. It’s going to be okay.

    And now…..back to my battle with writer’s block.

    Retro Blue Jays – Montreal, 8mm Style

    March 26, 2015

    Posted by Jared Allen.

    It’s fitting the Blue Jays will travel to Montreal next week for the final portion of the spring training schedule. Last year’s visit to the Olympic Stadium was a huge success.

    Speaking of which…

    2014 can’t be considered retro, but the technology used in this 27-minute clip certainly is.

    The videographer recorded the March 28, 2014 pre-season contest between the Jays and the New York Mets at the Big O with an 8mm camera. The final product is a lovely combination of contemporary life with old school technology.

    Mr. Allen had a perfect POV and captured so much; from travelling to the stadium to the Jays celebrating a walkoff victory. There’s a lot to take in, but it’s worth spending the time. There’s even a clip featuring everyone’s favourite mid-game activity, the wave [sarcasm].

    I doubt 8mm cameras will make a comeback and become a trend, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt having more videos like this.
