The scene: Casey Janssen sits down Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a called third strike for the second out of the ninth inning. One female Blue Jays fan in attendance decides she’s had enough of a visiting Red Sox fan, who probably spent most of the evening reminding those around him of his beloved team’s triumphs of 2004, 2007 and Monday night. Our protagonist in the stands turns to the undoubtedly insufferable Red Sox fan seated behind her to um, rub it in.
Janssen would make a mess of the situation shortly afterwards by allowing the potential tying run to reach the on-deck circle, but the Blue Jays escaped with a 7-3 victory.
To Rogers Sportsnet’s production crew and their new found obsession with sexual innuendo: thank you!
To the young woman whose miming skills we’re celebrating: I’m sorry!
