I get excited every year at this time as I prepare myself to chase that elusive high I experienced during the summer of '85. That was the year my beloved Blue Jays won their first pennant, and for this ten year old, there was nothing better.
I once wrote a whole bunch about the Drive of '85, so if you want to read more, here's where you want to go.
I rode that high through 1993 when we won our second World Series, but I haven't tasted it since. Still, I chase that high... like clockwork... every spring.
As far as I can tell, this year's Jays team looks an awful lot like last year's Jays team, which thoroughly disappointed. I'm betting I'll still be chasing that elusive Drive of '85 high next spring.
