Tonight the Montreal Expos play their last ever home game. Next season there will be no Montreal franchise in Major League Baseball. The team will play out of Washington, DC under a new name.
For as long as I can remember there has always been two teams in Canada. As a die hard fan of one of them, I've always been fairly indifferent about the other. Sure, I liked the fact they were Canadian-based and they were always my favourite National League team, but I'm hardly a big Expos fan. For me, I was always way too focused on the Blue Jays to allow another team into my heart.
I'm sort of sad to see the Expos go but I won't be shedding a tear. What does concern me is the very real possibility that this scenario repeats itself one day in the future and it's my Blue Jays that relocate. If that were to happen, I wouldn't shed a tear, I'd fill a bucket.
