Labour Day at the Baseball Game!

Your starting Fan Line-Up for the Labour Day baseball game where the Jays welcomed the Texas Rangers and won 7-2.

#18 - Ameera "Princess" Hosein
She's #18 because so far that has been the best year fo her life. 
Her batting stance song would be Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out."

#11 - Karim "What's your twitter handle?"Kanji
#11 Karim Kanji came out to the game rocking this geriatric look.  All his matchy matchy tracksuit was missing was a few gold chains. (I like to bug him.  He knows he is one of my favourite people.) His batting song would be "Piece of Crap" by Neil Young.  Of course it would.

#89 - Minaz "Did you know you could recycle that?" Kanji
She came to Canada in 1989 and has worked at making Toronto a greener place to live in ever since then.  She'd come out to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" and would likely hit a homerun with that anthem in the background!

And with these shoes, she would deserve it too!

#2  - Faiza "Genoa City" Kanji
I like the #2 because some of my best times in life have been spent in duos!
 I'd walk to the batter's box to the tune of the Jackson 5's "Can You Feel It?" 
That song makes me feel like I have ants in my pants.  In a good way.
(I'm not sure how to recover from that one....)

#1 - Kahzmir Kanji
This kid is too cool for a nickname.  He picked #1 for his jersey because it's Thomas' number. 
Makes sense to me and of course his batting song would obviously be "Go, Go Thomas!"
It's a real crowd pleaser amongst the 2-6 year old demographic.

Seriously...too cute!

We had a great time watching the Jays beat the Rangers. 
A gratuitous shot of Michael Young for Micaela just before he got a hit.

The dome was closed and then it opened.  It was sunny and then it rained. 
High five to Kahzmir's parents who brought weather appropriate reading materials.

I'd say a Happy Labour Day was had by all!

I do believe the way I love the way you LOVE baseball, and your home team!

*P.S. I loved those flip-flops. Did she make them from recycled materials or buy them somewhere?

Marz said...

I absolutely LOVE these posts!!!!!! I LOVE your starting fan line up :) Reading all the numbers, nicknames and batting songs made me giggle. I cannot get enough of your adorable nephew!!! He is just too precious :) Micaela is going to love that pic of Michael Young and that you thought of her :) I thought of you while Philip and I were watching on TV. I just knew you were prob there in attendance :) Thanks for the lovely ballpark postcard! I love it! I got it in the mail yesterday :) xoxo

I think I would be batting in a Pinch Hitter role. My number off the bench would be 04 because that's the year that I met Miss Kanji & the rest of the best at YES. The song I would come out to is Just Because by Jane's Addiction, why? Just because.

That was a great article Faiza! I miss you buddy.

That Baseball game was the perfect end to the summer (I didn't say 'end of summer' did I?!!!). Thanks Faiza for always making baseball games fun for those of us who aren't avid fans!
Minaz (who wishes her flip flops were recycled!)
