I was playing a double header last night, which meant I was at the ballpark from about 7pm until 11pm. That meant I missed the entire Jays game, a game I was highly anticipating. Thank goodness for Twitter.
A few people I was following were at the game, and every so often between innings of my game I'd check in to get a flavour of the game. @steffwilkinson gave me awesome updates, telling me the score, what the crowd was chanting and what signs were being held by the Blue Jay faithful.
I didn't watch the game or listen to an inning of the action, but I didn't miss out on Roy Halladay's gem and the Jays first big win against a supposed AL East contender. This is precisely what I like about Twitter. It's the pulse of a city, a nation and a planet in real-time.
Speaking of tweeting at Toronto sporting events, Elvis is taking me to the Toronto FC match tonight. He's warned me against tweeting at BMO Field, but I'm going to do it anyway. If it's good enough for the Mayor, it's good enough for me.
