There’s a movement afoot. Well, at least sixteen tweets and a couple of message board posts, but anything that’s anything has to start somewhere, and #OperationWhiteWash might as well start here:

Normally, the idea of joining together in unity over any issue induces more eye rolls from me than a trailer for a movie starring Kate Hudson, but this seems to be rooted in a spirit of fun and shows that we’re all capable of having a laugh at a ridiculous accusation, which is almost always better than the alternative: spiking one’s batting helmet at the feet of your accuser.

So, if you’re heading to the game on Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, be sure to dress in all of your pre-Labour Day glory to cheer on the Blue Jays and prove that for all the vitriol we might spew forth online, deep down, we do have a sense of humour about it all.

For background to #OperationWhiteWash, check out this and more recently, this.

  1. That would be a good cross promo for the Jays and KFC. Come dressed in white and get a free bucket of chicken.

  2. I plan on going all-out for Operation Whitewash: completely white gown, white hood over my head, maybe if I’m lucky enough to get a front row seat I’ll put up “K” signs for strikeouts, grouped in 3′s. Those Red Sox fans are gonna witness the birth of a nation!

  3. If we only allow people wearing white but deny access to people wearing black we could call it “Red Sox Hiring Policies Until The Mid-1980s Night”

  4. Vlad to AAA

  5. Fans trying to get to the game through Union Station tonight can enjoy #OperationSewageWaterWash

  8. Hold the party folks.. if you all show up in white shirts, then our boys will get no hit.. and we can’t have that now can we.

  9. Just give the ‘man in white’ a heads up so he can wear all-black and we can still mash home-runs

    • @ HBomb- Thanks for the heads up. I’ll wear my black Joey Bats jersey on Sunday

      Jaysfully yours,
      The Man In White (aka Stieb’s Stache)
