Blue Jays Provide Hope For All
The Toronto Blue Jays clinched the American League East yesterday, ending a 22-year division title drought after beating the Baltimore Orioles.
As a suffering Mariners fan, I know what it's like to have your team fail year in and year out. Some of you are fans of failing teams too. Some of you like the Bills, who haven't been to the playoffs since the 1999 season.
The Mariners haven't been since 2001.
But seeing the Blue Jays clinch yesterday, while it comes in contrast to our Yankee fandom, is refreshing because it proves that even the most loveable of losers and franchises down on their luck can find some success.
So sure, we at 104.5 The Team would have loved to see the Yankees clinch the AL East, but just remember, that the Blue Jays provided hope for all the struggling teams out there.
This...This could be your team soon.
Wouldn't that be something?
