Actually, losing 100 games (or more) would be kind of cool

September 10, 2019

Think about it.

They haven’t lost 100 games or more since 1979. 40 freaking years! That’s about two generations of Blue Jay fans.

You can’t lose 100 games in a single season with any other sport. Can’t do it in hockey, basketball or football.

In a sick and twisted kind of way, it’s an incredible feat. A negative one, but a feat nonetheless.

Sure, it sucks seeing the Jays lose. But years from now, we’ll look back at the 2019 season and laugh. Similar to Chris Jericho, we’ll sit in our palacial estates, enjoying a glass of the bubbly and reminisce fondly about the misfortunes that occurred over 162 games. It will be our own Plan 9; a badge of honour.

So, the bleeding hearts can bleed and anti-Shapiro mob can light their torches. I’m embracing the pain and preparing for something I’ve never experienced as a Jays fan.

Besides – to paraphrase a meme – if you don’t love the Blue Jays at their worst, then you don’t deserve them at their best.

Think about it.
