Blue Jays Blackberry Tweeting Tuesday

This week, my son and I attended the Blue Jays v Royals Blackberry Tweeting Tuesday game. Every Tuesday is Tweeting Tuesday. We sat 11 rows back down the 3rd base line. The tickets were less than $90 for both of us.


Driving there was a nightmare as I stupidly drove right thru the Exhibition grounds, where the annual Canadian Exhibition was being held. Still had to buy tix. Lucky I was way early and we still caught the 1st pitch. The walk up crowd was big, but they still only had 20,000 fans at the game.


First inning, we bought two required hotdogs. Mmmmm. Ketchup for the son. Mustard for me.


Later in the game, my son wanted a poutines. Very disappointing. The gravy was so thin that it simply runs to the bottom of the container forming a gravy soup. Rogers Centre needs to learn  how to make a poutine.

Two fans stormed the field and were tackled by security and escorted by police. The police shown took forever. The 1st cop had his guy off the field before this guy finished his donut. LOL

The Blue Jays always lose when we go. They were down 6-0 in the 5th. Lost 6-4. Escobar hit a 3 run homer, which was the highlight of the game.

Leafs v. Capitals, Game 16

The difference between Sunday's game against the Capitals and Tuesday game against the Capitals can be summarized as "Belfour stopped letting in bad goals after the 1st period." In both games, the Capitals had a lot of low quality shots on goal that evaded Tellqvist all game.

The reffing was somewhat better except that they continue to call it hooking when a players stick lightly touches another player. If you wanna create a new rule banning touching other players with your stick. Calling it hooking, when the stick isn't impeding the player at all, is kinda dumb.
