Um… am I the only one for whom “Roof On Hold,” rather than suggesting a sunny day with the possibility of outdoor baseball, conjures memories of… oh, I don’t know… the time it started raining mid-game and the roof at the Rogers Centre wouldn’t close, so a bunch of people got soaked– including Sean, who runs our football blog, 100 Yards and Running, and I can assure you is still just a liiiiittle bit bitter about it– while all us dry souls who missed it were spared any good fortune by being reminded of the spirit-crushing, looming inevitability that the Rogers Centre roof is not immortal, and sooner or later, with no flashy new ballpark anywhere close to in sight, we may just be one day faced with the putrid possibility of a permanently closed stadium?
Yeah… not sure I would have gone with that one.
UPDATE: OK, so apparently they’ve been using this all year, and it’s about the status of the roof. Still conjures bad memories, but maybe less confounding now. Do I really go to BlueJays.com so little to have not noticed until the second last game of the year? With Gregor’s stuff steam-fed into my RSS reader, I guess I’m going to have go ahead and say yes.
