The Toronto Blue Jays home opener is tomorrow. I won't be at the game, because I'll be busy earning my Father of the Year award, but more on that later.
I've written a ton about how much this team meant to me from 1983 through 1993. I clung to every inning during the Drive of '85 while worshipping George Bell, Dave Stieb, Tony Fernandez and the like. Every year at this time, I get that tingly sensation. It's the thrill of the grass, and it all begins now.
In honour of another new Blue Jays season, here's a whole bunch of old school Blue Jays songs I've shared over the past seven years of blogging. Throughout the season, I'll share more. If you remember Kelly Gruber's fog grandslam, George Bell's opening day trifecta of homers or those 9th inning two out singles Dave Stieb gave up, you'll love this.
