Watching the Blue Jays

I'm watching yet another baseball game tonight. The Toronto Blue Jays vs the Boston Red Sox. Toronto is beating them badly again. Boston seems to be playing very sloppily lately. Which is great timing for Toronto who have 3 of their best players out with injuries.

I go through periods of following baseball and it looks like this is a good year to follow the Blue Jays. A friend is a Red Sox fan and was teasing when Toronto was losing, he's a bit quieter these days.

Baseball is one sport I can watch and do other things at the same time. I usually do some writing or research while watching the game.

I have three favorite teams. Blue Jays first, followed by Yankees, followed by the Red Sox. But when the Jays are playing those teams I only have one love.

I have fond memories of the two years in a row that Toronto won the World Series. I was living in Toronto at the time and it was crazy. I bought all the merchandise that I could find :)

I have no illusions, I know there is still a long way to go until October and anything can happen. I do know whomever is in the World Series, I will be watching.
