Another night another win for the red hot Jays. Last night’s 4-2 win over Oakland was the ninth straight for the juggernaut and pushed Toronto to only 0.5 games back of New York for first.
It was a special night at the dome as the visit by the A’s marked the return of Brett Lawrie. Lawrie was a bit of an enigma in Toronto. He had a ton of talent and a ton of heart, but never quite lived up to expectations. But he was still a fan favourite, with his reckless and passionate play, not to mention his Canadian passport.
When he came to bat for the first time he received a nice ovation, with most of the cheering coming courtesy of today’s 500 Level Fan of the Game.
There are many things wrong with that photo, but most obvious is the colouring of the jersey. Fluorescent green? Black and grey? And, again – fluorescent green????
I overheard this fine gent saying things like “I just don’t know who to cheer for” and “I miss him. I really miss him” when Brett came to the plate.
For that bizarre behaviour, and even worse jersey, it’s a no doubter for fan of the game. Extra props for the grab of the bum too.
