FYI

Just got back from SkyDome–sorry, Rogers Centre–where I was privy to yet another Blue Jays loss, this one a stupid 4-3 decision to the New York Yankees that we probably should have wrapped up in about the third inning. The Jays have lost the last nine times I’ve seen them play. Nine times! In fact, since 2003, the Blue Jays are a stunning 2-12 when I’ve been in attendance. Two more consecutive losses and Adam is forcing me to cancel my season pass…and on the basis of this evidence, I can’t say I blame him.
