The time to actually effing begin another season of Toronto Blue Jays baseball is nearly upon us, and as much as I’d like to take the opportunity right now to wax poetic about the smell of wood and leather, or whatever it is that makes Bob Costas hard these days, I’ve got a pre-game live stream to get set for!

Yes, for those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to live in Toronto, or savvy enough to have found a way out of work so you can come join us at Opera Bob’s Public House on Dundas St W. in Toronto for the game (and, rumour has it, possibly some sausages and pulled pork), you’ll at least be able to watch Parkes, Drew and I talk all things baseball on, starting at 2:30 PM ET, leading all the way up to the first pitch, just after 3 o’clock.

(Oh, and I’m told that if you’re not fortunate enough to live in Toronto, but are¬†fortunate enough to be in St. John’s, NL, you’ll want to hit up the local Don Cherry’s to watch the game with some fellow DJF Monkey Army members.)

As for us, we’ll be streaming live from inside Opera Bob’s, then (obviously) sticking around to watch the game afterwards. The details are on the Facebook invite, or… I pretty much just told you them. And I’m going to go ahead and suggest you get there early– not so much to provide us a nice, boozy, crowded backdrop for the stream, but because the bar’s capacity is just 75 people.

Feel free to tweet in our direction any questions you’d like us to ramble on incessantly about.

  1. the stream link doesn’t go to a live stream it goes to an Outlook login page…

  2. happy opening day everyone. despite all the different opinions about this team, i think that the one thing that we can all agree on is that it is great to have jays baseball back!

    see you at opera bob’s.

  3. Happy Opening Day! Watching the game at the Earl of Sussex with some others.

  4. Fuck yeah. What else is there to say?

  5. Just a hi from London,uk.. Wish I could join you guys in Toronto, but will have to make do with streaming MLB instead… Here’s to another great season of jays baseball :)

  6. There’s a Don Cherry’s still operating in Newfoundland? I’ve always felt like I was setting my watch back 20 years when I went but this pretty much makes it real.

  7. As far as I know, there is a Don Cherry’s in Brampton as well – inside the huge recreation centre thats attached to the Sheridan College parking lot. I’m sure a quick search would tell me if this information is still correct, but I’m pretty lazy

    • Ok, I guess I wasn’t that lazy afterall; I did look it up. It’s actually the head office!!! I went there a couple times a few years back – wasn’t too bad.

      • Yeah, went to the web site which immediately asked me to re-brand my restaurant. Guess they’re making a push to come back. I had assumed they were all gone as all the locations I remember had closed years ago.

  8. I wonder if we’re going to hear
    “Fisted” today. Might be time for the
    first Donald Sutherlands of the season.

  9. How many people signed up on facebook for Opera Bob’s?

  10. Happy Opening Day to all! In the words of @dadboner: “Baseball is our national pastime. Opening Day should be a holiday. Anyone who doesn’t get that should just hit the bricks to China”

  11. Have a great day guys.

    *Strappin’ on the 40′s with duct tape and bustin’ out the beater. I just finished blowdrying my mullet circa 1987 golden dynasty*.

  12. Being at Opera Bob’s > writing an exam pining for beer and baseball.


  13. if anyone wants to watch the mlb tv game in canada download hotspot sheild. It is a program that gives you an american ip. I use it to watch hulu, so im guessing it should work for mlbtv aswell. For all you guys who couldnt find a good enough excuse to skip work.

  14. Noice S/O Ricky

  15. I Will say, there is something to be said about watching a game, shoulder to shoulder with a few dudes you don’t know. high fiveing like ya don’t give a fuck and enjoying a game of baseball. Well done DJF for not going commercial/corporate on our asses. hell of a day!
