It would be fun to write a post about the winning ways of the Blue Jays and up until two days ago I could have.  After a great ending to the baseball season, the Blue Jays entered the playoffs with back to back afternoon games against the Texas Rangers here in Toronto.   Yesterday the Rangers beat us 5 to 3.  Again today, the Blue Jays lost by two runs but this time it took 14 innings, or close to 5 hours.

The Rogers Centre holds just over 49,000 people and it was filled to capacity both days.

The next two games of the American League Division Series are scheduled to be played in Texas on Sunday and Monday.  If a fifth game is needed (it’s a best of five series), it will played in Toronto on the 14th of October, next Wednesday.
Keep your fingers crossed!
