It’s been a long time coming but us Toronto Blue Jays fans can now start feeling proud about a sports team in this city who has the potential in going somewhere – once again! Some of us differ in our opinions though. Some fans think we have a chance to reach the playoffs this 2012 season and some say it might take 1 more season – or 2, either way we all know together this is a team who is not to be taken lightly this year. You won’t have the Texas Rangers or Detroit Tigers coming in against a series with the Blue Jays and say “easy series win right here boys”.
So what, am I blind fan driven by to much pride? Quite the latter. I’m an optimistic guy when it comes to watching the Blue Jays and I think we have a chance to reach the playoffs but it won’t be easy this season at least. We have a number of good teams in the American League this year and to get into playoff contention we are going to have to be consistent each game, especially in the East. However, winning a 4 game series against the Royals is a good start to that belief after watching our boys this week.
Jays and Orioles will be opening a 3 game series starting today and I think with the season still being young it’s time more Torontonians get out and start supporting they’re Blue Jays team. But please people ensure to inform yourselves a little bit about baseball before you start to panic every time we loose! I know with many Leafs fans being disappointed this season you’ve put very high expectations on the Blue Jays to win. Just take it easy.With us being first in the East I am feeling a sense of calmness for now
So Toronto, get out of your seats at home, stop whining about failing teams like the Leafs, Raptors and TFC and come to watch a real Toronto sports team for once! The fact that the Jays were never owned by MLSE is a blessing in disguise! Think about that one if you don’t know what I’m referring to with that last comment.
And please tell me what team has a better unofficial mascot then our own Jays fan and busker “Rick the Drummer”. He’s been outside the Rogers Center since 1989. Here he is:
