Great game at the ol’ Dome last night, my first of the season, and my first using the new Jays Fan Pass. Other than a few glitches (multiple swipes to get it to register, and the fact that my dad’s card was de-magnetized forcing him to go to customer service) the group got in and settled by the second inning.
With 500 Level Fan’s favourite man Edwin Encarncion leading the way, the Jays pounded Boston 7-3 to move back over the .500 mark. Kyle Drabek pitched very well (5.1 IP, 3 H, 3 BB, 1 ER, 4 K), and EE, Escobar, Lind, and Lawrie each had a pair of hits. The only troubling signs came from Colby Rasmus, who continues to struggle and is now hitting .095, and Jose Bautista, who had a hat-trick of strikeouts and is now 1 for his past 16.
But hey, a win’s a win. We’ll take it.
As we settled into our seats a quick look around showed us a pretty Jays friendly section. A lot of younger people, a lot of jerseys, and a ton of new caps were everywhere.
But then we see a genuine celebrity, and there was no doubt who the 500 Level Fan of the Game would be.
Everybody has heard of Friar Tuck. You may be aware of NY Giants defensive player Justin Tuck. Some of you might even know FTC – Fully Tucked Chuck.
But have you ever in your life seen this man?
Here he is – Terrible Tuck.
That is a deep, agressive tuck. Incredible. Congrats TT on being 500 Level Fan’s first Fan of the Game for 2012.
