Crappy pic of me wearing...the largest Blue Jays hat in the world! A totally reasonable umbrella. Not showy at all.

Baseball is back today. The new uniforms look hot and there is hope in the air. It's a good day!

I am ready for: the struggle, the heroics, the strategy, the double plays, the potential no hitters, the stupid Brett Lawrie tweets, the heart breakers, the blind optimism, the weird group activity that is cheering on a team ("Canada's team"), consuming more hot dogs than I should, the blown saves (by other teams, of course), Bautista's one million homers, sunshine, the open dome on warm summer nights, the comforting sound of baseball on the radio, and cold drinks on hot days. And no matter how sunny I sound to you here, believe me, I will still hate the wave with every ounce of my being...same goes for you, guy who will sit behind me at at least 2 games saying the dumbest shit I've ever heard in my life.

Amelie had a great post about her feelings about baseball on her blog. Check it out!

Really loving how the Blue Jays are being marketed these days too. Lots of moody drama. Deep blues, crisp whites, serious men!

Um. You are the best.

This umbrella must make an appearance at a game. It is the best thing I've ever SEEN!



Anabela: ♥

Lee: If we didn't have a dome, this would come in SO handy at rainy games. Imagine how angry the person sitting behind me would be though? HA.

Eeeeeek! That umbrella!

Congratulations on yesterday's game. Didn't get to watch the game but what an opening!!

PS: I am scheming of a trip to Toronto this summer... I'll keep you posted!

xo, Amelie


Amelie: Seriously, that was one EPIC first game, ha. Definitely keep me posted on your trip. It would be awesome to go to a game together!!!
