I captured to day’s picture of the day while wandering around Costco It seems I wasn’t the only wanting to watch the Blue Jays in the 5th game of the American League Championship series. I’m happy to say that they won forcing a game 6 in Kansas on Friday.

Today I decided to do something different for my picture of the day. Today I have taken a picture from social media. I just knew I nothing I took today captured the monumental events of the day as well as this picture from the Sportsnet Photographer Chris Young. In cause you don’t know what happened, let me explain. Today the Toronto Blue Jays won their American League Division Series in dramatic fashion. It was the most exciting game of baseball I’ve ever seen. After a crazy top of the 7th that saw the Rangers take the lead, the Jays came storming back first tying the game then taking a commanding lead off the bat of Jose Bautista; Seen in the picture of the day flipping his bat away after watching the ball leave the park.

Today the Toronto Blue Jays hosted their first postseason since they won the World Series in 1993. Though the game didn’t end the way we wanted, I thought a picture of my new ball cap, that Lynn bought for me,  would be a great POD for today.

POD: Last Regular Season Home Game

Today I headed down to the ball park to watch the Blue Jays play their last home game of the regular season. It was a great game, with the Josh Donaldson hitting a solo home run in bottom of the ninth for the win. It’s been a great season, and though I didn’t get to as many games as I hopped to, it’s been amazing to be able to watch the games live and feel the excitement of the crown. Go Jays Go

POD: Popcorn for Price

Tonight I finally got to see David Price pitch live. It was great game, with the Jays winning 4-2 extending their division lead to 3.5 games and closing the distance the league lead to 1.5 games. I’m loving September Baseball.

POD: Burger at the Ballpark

Tonight I managed to get down to the Rogers Centre for the some Baseball. I was early so I needed to get some dinner at the park. It wasn’t a cheap burger, but one of the few times I’ve gotten food at the ball park that I enjoyed and didn’t feel like I was being ripped off.

POD: Baseball Action

I spent this afternoon sitting in the sun at the Rogers Centre watching the Blue Jays win their 78th game of the year, to maintain their 1.5 game lead on the Yankees in the American League East. It was great to be at the game with 46,000+ other fans, and that we could be seeing playoff baseball in this city for the first time since they won it all back to back in 92-93. It’s been just amazing and as a long time fan, regardless of their record, it’s great to see games that matter in september.

POD: Baseball game with Jacob

Today Jacob and I braved the scorching sun to watch the Jay’s beat the Yankees 3-1 at the Rogers Centre. It was fun being at the ball park with my boy. It was better that the Blue Jay’s were able to avoid the sweep and stay just a half game back of the division league.

POD: Looking down on the Game

This afternoon I headed down to take in a rare Saturday afternoon game. It amuses me that over the past few years I’ve probably been to close to 50 games with these tickets, but have sat in the seats less than 6 times.
