[URBAN NOTE] On finding myself an unexpected Toronto Blue Jays fan

As I type, Game 6 of the American League championship between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals is playing. It's the bottom of the 7th inning and the score is 2:1 in favour of the Royals. Will the Blue Jays do it? Will they make it to Game 7 with a chance to win? Might the team win the World Series? All is unresolved.

Everyone who reads this blog likely knows I'm not a sports fan. I've found myself amused to be nonetheless caught up in this. The hopes of a city, or even a country, for a winning sports team are contagious. (Since the Expos left for Washington a decade ago, the Blue Jays have been alone in Canada.) A World Series victory would bring some much-needed joy to my city and country, I think.
