Blue Jews

I just returned from Toronto. Luckily, my wife has realized that when I travel my goal is to see a new baseball stadium. So to Rogers Stadium we went. I actually enjoyed the stadium. The roof was open. Had a basketball arena type feel with the inside, food, and concrete. But, overall I enjoyed the park. There is a Kosher Hot Dog stand in section 133. It serves great fries. Jessie did not eat the Hot Dog because there was also a kosher dog stand at Niagra Falls. (Note: there are also veggie dogs at both).

The game itself was bizarre. No Jews in the game. Blue Jays/Mariners. Wow, how 1 year out of fantasy baseball (I have my reasons) has made me feel so out of it. I literally knew no one on the field. The whole game I kept telling Jessie, that’s Jose Batista and that’s Ichiro. Literally the only two players on the field that mattered. It made me realize how much I love my White Sox and Kenny Williams. Seriously, rebuilding completely must stink. At least people know Rios, AJ, and Konerko. During the game it dawned on my that I am still dealing with the tragedies of how close the Bulls (and Bears for that matter) were and I have not given my all to my beloved White Sox. Part of that is Adam Dunn’s fault and part is mine. So from here on out, I am ALL IN.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
