500 Level Fan of the Game – September 8th, 2010

10,616 – not a great attendance last night (not terribly bad considering the opponent, their injuries, the first week of school, and the weather – but not great), making it tough to find a fan of the game.  The upper deck was eerily silent.

But then something magical happened.

A 500 Level Fan of the Game appeared, seemingly from nowhere.  And this fan looked famous!  Here’s a clue:

This is Ground Control to Major Tom/  You’ve really made the grade/  And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear/  Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control/  I’m stepping through the door/  And I’m floating in a most peculiar way/  And the stars look very different today

Or how about this:


That’s right!  In the 5th inning, a quick look behind us brought us last night’s fan of the game – Major Tom!

Gold tights.  Blue eye makeup.  This man/woman was heavily involved in a photo shoot for a few innings at the top of the upper deck.

Until the always lovable Rogers Centre security staff put a stop to it…


But it was great while it lasted. 

And for distracting all 425 of us in the 500 Level during a game in which the Jays lost 8-1, and virtually the entire ‘B-squad’ (Mike McCoy, Jose Molina, Jarret Hoffpauir, Brian “Billy” Tallet, and Josh Roenicke) made an appearance, winning the 500 Level Fan of the Game is richly deserved.

Congratulations Major Tom.

  1. How androgynous! Sexy!

    The one thing I’ve always wondered is why the ushers make people sit close to the crowd if people veer up to the very top of the decks or if they move a few sections over from everybody.
