Don’t consider yesterday’s flurry of posts as Spring Training action began for the Jays as a tease, per se. There will certainly be more days like it than there will be ones like today, but… uh… yeah, about that: this is about all you’re going to get, as far as a Game Threat goes, because even though the Jays are the subject of another Sportsnet telecast as they open Florida Auto Exchange Stadium in Dunedin to fans for yet another year, over here on the other side of the state it’s race day! And I’ve already got myself a soft-sided cooler full of cheap beer to bring in, and a ticket that’s far too expensive to let go unused, even in the wake of yesterday’s terrifying and tragic accident at the NASCAR Nationwide DRIVE4COPD 300 race… whatever that is.
So the Jays and O’s, and the split squad game against the Yankees in Tampa, and the continued creeping tediousness of spring can wait. For me, at least. Enjoy the game.
