Short, scribbled thoughts about the suspensions/fall out

May 18, 2016

I really had no desire to post something about the shenanigans that took place in Arlington and the subsequent suspensions/fines. There really wasn’t a point since I’m not an expert in disciplinary action. But I will say this…

Jose Bautista didn’t deserved to be punched. Odor’s actions were inexcusable. The amount of games he received for the suspension wasn’t going to satisfy all Blue Jay fans. No number would.

What Odor did angered me. My blood pressure goes up every time I saw his fist connect with Bats’ chin. Yes, I took it personally. But now, I just want to move on.

Short, Scribbled Thoughts on Game 5

October 16, 2015

It’s been several hours since the Jays defeated Texas and I’m still at a loss for words. They simply couldn’t describe the dramatics that took place Wednesday. When I think about that seventh inning, the only concept that comes to mind is karma.

That bat flip. Nothing will ever top it. NOTHING.

Time to shift our focus to the ALCS. Remember to savour the moment. It’s a rematch 30 years in the making.

Fellow Blue Jay fans: Savour this moment

October 7, 2015

I was a young child when the Blue Jays won back-to-back World Series championships. Those wonderful days of 1992-93 became cherished memories. But while I was old enough to witness the magic, I was naive to appreciate what the team had accomplished and understand how hard the task of winning the top prize – not once, but twice – was.

As a kid, I only knew the Jays as a winning team. The days of playing below 500 and finishing at the bottom of the AL East occurred before I was born. So I didn’t know any better. In my adolescent mind, the Jays were always a first place team and they would naturally appear in the playoffs every year.

Obviously, I was not prepared for the 22-year journey that would occur.

But I learned a valuable lesson, reminded by witnessing poor performing teams, sitting in a less than half-full Skydome and consuming media that frustratingly treated the Jays as an afterthought at times.

So to my fellow Blue Jay fans…

With the ALDS against Texas one sleep away, I offer the following advice: SAVOUR every moment, regardless of outcome. Do NOT take this playoff run for granted. As hard as we try, we do not know what the future entails. This could be the start of a dynasty or a one-hit wonder. It’s just not worth trying to figure out. Focus on what’s happening now and enjoy every second of it.

This season has been – and continues to be – special. So please, savour it.
