I replied, "Do you think my Swiffer would have the same effect?"
Contrary to what you may think, we were not engaged in a discussion about our respective domestic habits. The Yankees were in town for a three game series and the Jays had won the first two games. He knew I had tickets to the third game and we were referring to our hopes for the Jays to SWEEP the series.
I didn't take my pastel green Swiffer with me. The Jays lost and we didn't get the sweep. My cousin Alida says I can blame the loss on her. She feels she might have been bad luck. I wonder if this is part of her alleged middle child syndrome. She's a middle child as is my brother Aneez. They say this syndrome exists. I say their kind is going extinct and it certainly wasn't her fault that the bullpen let Brandon Morrow down and contributed to our losing the game. Here's a quick look at the game in pics...
Alida is working in Kabul, Afghanistan at the moment. She's home for a quick holiday. We both had a moment of awe as we headed towards our seats. Here she is taking a picture, trying to capture that feeling of emerging over the field.
The best usher in the Dome, Maureen Findlay Konnyu. She's so cool that she even has her own Facebook fan page! She has a bit of a crush on my brother Aneez, she told us so herself!
The Unfortunate Photo of the Day goes to Nick Swisher. Apparently he was suffering from severe allergies and red eyes the day this photo was taken.
Look who it is? Rick the Drummer comes in from outside the Dome to hype up the crowd. Torontonians will know Rick as the drummer who plays outside the stadium at EVERY game. Love brought him to Toronto and he's been at the Dome for every game since it opened up in 1989. Not only does he have an awesome smile and great energy, he's also a music teacher at a local school. I heart teachers. I was so happy to see him on the Jumbotron! Yay Rick!
One of my favorite parts of the game is the 7th Inning Stretch and the Take Me Out to the Ball Game sing-a-long.
Me and my cousin Alida. The last game we went to together was at the old Yankee stadium in New York. We won that game, so I know she's nothing close to bad luck.
GO JAYS GO!
