Thanks in part to perennial Prime Minister write in nominee Joltin Joe, the much heralded 92/93 World Series Reunion is 2 days away. The city is gonna be buzzing in a few days… imagine if we actually played well all season? Oh man imagine if Doc was actually traded?
My lack of posting this year is so lacking. I better make up for it soon. Yes I am still a huge Yankees fan as well as a tremendous jays fan. Obviously. As great as I feel for the Yanks return to prominence, my heart goes out to the plucky Jays who remind me of The Dynamite Kid… for simply being harder workers who always have to look up to the bloated champions ahead of them and handicapped with the worst luck and injury prone. How’s that for a metaphor? I’m going to the Jays/Yanks game in a few hours .. for the first time in years I will be rooting the Jays over the pinstripes, as I did last night with Mariano (the undoubtedly best ever) Rivera vs Aaron Mr. MVP Hill. I always win in these situations .. and lose.
Enough about that, this is Jays fanaticism time! This week is gonna be crazy. Coming off of Caribana right into Blue Jays 90’s love week. This blog pretty much was berthed back in the late 80s early 90s because of this weekend. The agony of 85 (I went to the AL east clincher), 88 (damn Tigers!!!), 89 and 91 was worth it for those 2 glorious years in 92 and 93. Those were the years American baseball fans realized Toronto was somewhat relevant in their red white and blue lives.
I actually have that video in the SI WS VHS season recap. I have a bunch of other old stuff too. These pics I took years ago back at my folks place, my lil baseball basement haven. Note the Rickey Henderson love No band wagoner here! Yes, i have all those and still have those newspaper clippings … and way more.
Oh yeah a wall devoted to Yanks and Jays hats over the years … told ya.
With that said OK OK Blue Jays Blue Jays let’s play ball! Let’s go Mr. Mxyzptlk go get em dude.
