Me either! But for those of you who do, we’ve got a rather serendipitous one from the 100 Level over the weekend. Kinda odd that someone just happened to be filming in the exact spot at the precise time here, but… that sure is a whole lot of liquid to have had… uh… on ones person (or, rather, in one’s person) if you’re going to fake a thing like this. Also, there’s like $50 worth of Rogers Centre-bought booze he’s wasting there!
And the YouTube description definitely tries to throw us off the scent that the man with the camera and the film-ee knew each other, as it simply says, “Fat bastard puking his guts out.”
Of course, YouTube wouldn’t stop there, as someone calling himself “capnbeefcurtains” quips, “that is a lot of barf. well done.”
Off the heels of the pitch-perfect 2013 Blue Jays Adventure RPG video comes a new video-game parody about the Toronto Blue Jays for your viewing pleasure.
This one, called Super Baseball Toronto GM Ninja Battle is a street-fighter style tale of Alex Anthopolous and his rise to power as the GM of the Jays. I won’t spoil any of the battles for you, just know that digital Beeston is nails.
This video is part of a great longread from Canadian Business and is the master work of @Cashewmirman, a Jays must-follow and creator of such frequently awesome content that I am sincerely doubting my own abilities in comparison. Check out all of his work at Weekend Punks, which currently features an animation of Anthony Gose running through a wall.
In a video that’s pretty much already been described to you by the title of this post, Aaron Boone of ESPN visited the Jays facility in Dunedin this spring dressed as a tailor trying to sell a bit of bullshit.
Below the jump are the results… or something. I don’t know…
Instagram-ish, which… fuck, now I have this stuck in my head.
I spotted this in the College and Bathurst area last night, and to my foggy memory it would seem to me an even deeper intrusion into the city than last year’s outdoor marketing campaign, which I don’t recall straying too far away from the Rogers Centre– like, say, north of Richmond Street– though… it’s not like I was really paying all that much attention.
So… that’s something. Maybe?
Here’s another, spotting in its more traditional locale, at Adelaide and Peter, just up from the Dome.
Far better than my shitty snaps, though, is a little slice of fantastic from Hipster J.A. Happ– aka @JAHappster, aka friend of the blog @mattomic, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thuoc– who, after the jump, takes us on a tour through Toronto neighbourhoods, letting us know which MLB teams you’d most likely find out hanging out there.

The book you see here is 100 Things Blue Jays Fans Should Know And Do Before They Die, from author Steve Clarke, who you can find on Twitter at @SteveClarkeMLB.
I’ll try to get my hands on a copy here for either review, or to give away, but in the meantime, you can purchase the just-released book from Amazon.ca, Chapters.ca, in Indigo stores (there are several copies available downtown, according to their site) or if you’d rather– and you probably should– from an independent bookstore via Indie Bound, or just by walking into one in your damn neighbourhood.
No you’re self-indulgently mailing in a post. (Also, thanks, Steve!)
Crotch grab in the direction of @Mattomic for the heads up.
Here we have, via the Jays’ official Twitter feed, the best angle on the changes taking place in the Rogers Centre that we’ve seen yet. And I’m thinking it looks pretty not half bad, whatever it is– though obviously not finished just yet.
You may recall that the last time we caught a glimpse of the progress, the only photo available required the kind of attention to detail usually reserved for the Zapruder film just to get a sense of what the hell you were looking at. Here, not so much.
Because… uh… as you can see… uh… the windows are gone.
