The Major League Baseball season kicked off in earnest Monday, and things started off nicely for my Toronto Blue Jays. After the 12-5 win over Detroit, the Jays are on pace for the first 162-0 season and a record 1,944 runs scored in a season. Take that Yankees and Red Sox. Yes sir, the view from the top of the American League East looks mighty fine! The Jays opening day win was witnessed by 48,000-plus at the SkyDome (don’t give me any of this corporate branding stadium name business), but by all accounts, the crowd at tonight’s game won’t be as robust. Why? The government is cracking down on the stadium for some instances of minors being sold alcohol and they’ve brought the hammer down in a big way: No beer for sale at the game tonight. Since the Jays won the World Series in ’92 and ’93, things haven’t always been so good in terms of the competitive nature of the team. They’ve never been back to the playoffs and only once have finished as high as second in the division. Let’s just say that having a few beers at the game some nights is the best part of the game. Hopefully the Jays can put up another 12 runs to drown fans’ sorrow.
