The Jays’ season ticket holders’ event, dubbed the State Of The Franchise, took place last night, and if you don’t follow me on Twitter, you probably have no clue what I thought of the deal, seeing as I, apparently, have no earthly idea how to properly use CoverItLive, meaning the little live tweet window I setup in the post below hit whatever capacity limit they have in a matter of minutes.

Fingers crossed that this actually works. Otherwise, uh… go ahead and talk among yourselves.
