Having scored my last Jays game, I felt some sort of fan sport was in order. I created a special All You Can Eat competition for the evening. The individual who was able to eat the most food would win a prize.
Our special guest for the evening was this seventh month old cutie Reyhan.
As the game progressed, it was determined that the coveted prize would be a majestic, shiny crown made of recycled hot dog wrappers (Minaz, aren't you so proud of me????)
The crown was fashioned after a few valiant attempts, an evolving style (as more and more hot dogs were consumed) and restyling. Point values were assigned to the various items on the menu. We all wanted to feel the power of the crown and took turns trying it on for size. Jess was able to add colour to the crown with our recycled gum wrappers.
Aaron looks so regal once the "delicious and nutritious" sign is fastened front and centre!
Leanne gets a bit emotional when it's her turn.
Reyhan wants a try too.
Hot dog consumption suddenly soared and the crown gained a trestle like piece across the top as well as a duckling companion.
We decided the duck needed to participate in the festivities in order to stay.
Food was only served until the 7th inning and Roy was clearly the winner.
He didn't seem excited to wear the crown. Perhaps I need to adjust the rules of the game. Next time we play, the loser has to wear the crown!
A close up of the game results for those of you who may wisely decide to play it yourselves.
A collective food coma started to set in and we began to simmer down.
As the game went into extra innings and with no food to distract us, we began to find other ways to amuse ourselves. Jess had heard that it was not possible to fold a piece of paper 8 times. She was determined to prove this theory wrong. Sadly, she was unsuccessful.
I told her that I heard it was impossible to rip a piece of paper in half, stack it and repeat this 8 times. She was up to the challenge and once again....defeat! Aaron found this funny. See how that brief dalliance with the crown affected him? Its powers are highly under rated.
The Jays won the game in the 11th inning thanks to Aaron Hill's RBI single. Our special guest and his entourage were thrilled!
We cheered, clapped and waved our rally towels and with bellies full we headed out into a beautiful and breezy Friday night.
