Found @BlueJays & Other Memorabilia (But Mostly Blue Jays or Toronto)

The Blue Jays Album Class Of

I love finding stuff like this! In moving recently, I had to do some serious digging through EVERYTHING – way more intense than your average spring cleaning – and during this digging I found a bunch of old memorabilia. The bulk of it is all from Toronto except for one Florida Marlins pennant and mostly, the stuff is memorabilia of the Major League Baseball team in town – the Toronto Blue Jays. First, we have the picture above – when the Blue Jays won the World Series in 1992 and in 1993 each year they came out with tapes to celebrate the win. The tapes included parody songs like “Rockin’ Robbie” celebrating Roberto Alomar instead of “Rockin’ Robin” as the classic Bobby Day 1958 single is called.

They are quite corny but, in my opinion, an awesome part of Major League Baseball history in Toronto/Canada. Yes, they still work and I did listen to them in their entirety again since I’ve found them. I’ve been considering ripping them digitally but don’t really know how to go about that. Read more…

Toronto Blue Jays Game Fun For #JaysTO at the Rogers Centre Thanks To Calvin @Cdot_In_Tdot

I was lucky enough to be invited today by the one and only Calvin aka @cdot_in_tdot to join in on a really fun “tweet-gathering” at a Toronto Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre (which I still call SkyDome out of habit from my youth) along with ‘Robyn’ aka @AyznGurl, Chris, Jill aka @Clark_Jill, Joallore aka @clickflickca, Erin aka @erinbury, Grant aka @Grantdvalentine, Jon aka @JonGauthier, Lucy aka @lotsofolives, Janet aka @mijetta, Shannon aka @Shananigans5, Jonathan aka @shrued, and Justin aka @The_JMoney for what became dubbed “#JaysTO“.

It was some of the most fun I have ever had at a Jays game in all honesty. I mean, I have been to numerous games in the past but never with such a large group of people when I wasn’t on a camp or school field trip. The sun was shining, the dome was open, there was good friends around, baseball to watch, and beer to drink. Read more…
