Alas, I won't be making it to Opening Day after all. Considering all of the drama that happened last year, I feel quite indifferent towards the turn of events. A 10-year streak will come to an end this Friday. Maybe next year, I'll start a new one.
It's kind of a blessing in disguise, really. I really don't feel like dragging my kids all the way to the 500's watching amateur hour of all the dickheads getting belligerent. It's really not something you want to take the kids to year after year. We'll catch our beloved Jays when there aren't 50,000 drunk assholes looking for a fight, surrounding us.
Speaking of drunk assholes, I have an extra ticket to the Crystal Castles show on Saturday. Message me if you're interested.
Meet Your Blue Jays, 2011 Edition!
(Brandon Morrow will start his season on the DL due to forearm soreness. Jo-Jo Reyes, who was picked up in the Yunel Escobar trade, will take his place.)
The Line-Up (in my opinion)
Rajai Davis CF
Aaron Hill 2B
Jose Bautista RF
Adam Lind 1B
Edwin Encarnacion DH
Travis Snider LF
Yunel Escobar SS
J.P. Arencibia C
Mike McCoy 3B
Jose Molina C
John McDonald IF
Meet Your Future Third Baseman!
Oh, Brett! How classy can you be?
Brett Lawrie just got sent down to Triple-A for some seasoning. No shit.
Buck Martinez, the Jays' colour guy saw him take a few hacks in spring training, and
said that this kid with his power will be in the major league roster this year. He just needs to thrive in the hitter's league that is the PCL, and we should see in in a Jays' lineup soon.
Bret Cecil, Junkballer?
Brett's diminished fastball is a concern. "Anybody in the league can hit 87," says Cecil, who uses his fastball to set up his other three off-speed pitches. Management and Brett insist that there is no injury, but it smells like another lefty who lost his fastball, then his job. He has a cologne in the Jays' Store. I think it's still there . . .
Maybe Cecil just needs to incorporate a new pitch to his arsenal. A real slow one, to offset the 87 mph heater that he currently has. Something that will eventually make it over the plate, just to give the hitters another look. Just saying.
It looks like it's going to be a fun summer! We'll see you in the 500's! Go Jays!

When I'm not blogging, I'm just wandering around checking this site:
shark attack monitor
I've always had a fascination with sharks ever since I was little. There was a picture of my mom in the Pacific and me trailing behind her. I'm the bubbly silhouette under water, drowning. I was quite aware of who we were sharing the waters with.

Again, I apologize for the lack of posts. The whole fam-dam took turns to shake of this miserable cough-cold-sucky-fucky condition that always ALWAYS comes with our stupid Canadian Winter.
To keep you busy, go check out www.dreamstadiums.com. It's a portfolio site by a hobbyist named Marc Gilbert, who presents a clean modern aesthetic that once were the norm of baseball stadiums.
Of course, we are in the era of retro-style brick facades with tinges of what Ebbets', or a Fenway, or a Wrigley had, which was character and charm, making the aforementioned seem less special, because to the glut of copycat hardball yards.
What is your dream stadium?

Found this on the interwebs through @dustinparkes of @drunkjaysfans fame.
Check it out:
Also, thanks to tumblrer @mightyflynn for the baseball pics. I'll be posting a ton of images from his tumblr. Check him out over here: mightyflynn

Nothing much to post here, so I figured I'd post Snider's 25 ounce steak binge. He polished that bitch off in less than 5 minutes. Fellow tubby motherfucker Jesse Litsch pictured beside him, was witness to this act.
Now if he's only shave off that pussy-duster moustache next . . .
Follow Travis on his daily, 'Man vs. Food,' escapades here:
He posted everything he ate over the Christmas Holidays. It was quite impressive.

I do apologize for the lack of posts. Sometimes, I just have to catch up on life.
And my Theremin.
And my spankin' new Trigger Finger!
- If you feel the need for more posts from yours truly, check out my tumblr page. It's kind of a picture and video blog. I'm there more often than here, because I rarely get long-winded enough to put things into words.
- Like the snazzy new banner? Me too! It's one of my favourite places to go in this world! You should check out a game there.
