500 Level Fan of the Game – May 16th, 2010

No photo available, but the Churchgoer would resemble one of these if older and female

The Jays enjoyed the largest crowd of the season since opening day on Sunday, but despite the 25,000+ in attendance, the candidates for FLF of the game were lacking.  I don’t know if it was the open roof, the beautiful sunny day, the fact that it was a Sunday, or that the Jays are simply playing too well to attract hecklers, but the crazy fan level was at a low.

That said, there was one fan in particular who caught the eye of my friends and I.  It was very hot in the upper deck, with virtually no protection from the sun available anywhere.  But in the top of the 4th inning, here came a fan into section 511 wearing heavy red corduroy pants, thick black socks, dress shoes, a dress shirt, and a white blazer.  He didn’t say much but he stared at us a lot.  Since it was a Sunday, we assumed he had come straight from church to the game, so ladies and gentleman, the 500 Level Fan of the Game for May 16th goes to the Churchgoer!

The Churchgoer was hot.  That was obivious both because he was dressed for an autumn day and it was blazing hot, and because he was soaked.  Sweat was pouring down the side of his face.  It was quite gross actually.

Even funnier was that as the game went on, his outfit became more scandalous.  By the 6th the blazer was off and the sleeves rolled up.  By the 7th, the cords were rolled up to his ankles and the socks pulled down.  By the 8th the cords were up at knee level, exposing an entire ankle and a full calf muscle.  His fellow church goers would have been outraged!

When the final out was achieved by Kevin Gregg, the Churchgoer simply stood up and walked away, gone just like that.  He didn’t make a great impression on anybody around him, but on a slow day in the 500 level, I’ll take what I can get.  Congratulations Churchgoer! same sites . expired domains . expiration of domains . apache web server . website offline .
