Happy Birthday, Cheryl!

Happy Birthday, Cheryl!The first comment left on this blog by Cheryl was "I want to say I am happy. I live in Toronto, but am a Habs fan. That's just the way it is. I love my Habs and I also like the Phoenix Coyotes. I hate the Leafs." That was November 1, 2009, and little has changed.

Cheryl still lives in Toronto, is still a Habs fan, still hates the Leafs, and I hope she's having a happy birthday today.

Happy Birthday Cheryl! Sorry you couldn't have your Chief Wahoo cake but Mike created a virtual one for you!

Darn - I wanted to be first to wish her a Happy Birthday! In any event - hope it's a good one and I am glad you got your card with $$, which had been delayed due to the postal issues! All the best to you Cheryl!

Happy birthday Cheryl, all your teams stink but I have to admire your commitment. By the way It's my birthday tomorrow...

You forgot the Kansas City Royals.

I've read that Cheryl has been a Royals fan since 1985.

Cheryl your optimism and loyalty cannot be denied. Happy birthday to you. Here's hoping for your best year yet!

December 12, 2018 @ 3:16 PM


Finger's crossed Cheryl can actually find this unlike the open Mike's that Toronto Mike hides on her every Friday....

What are your thoughts on Toronto Mike refusing to say the nickname of the Cleveland baseball team but happily photoshopping a cake with their racially and culturally insensitive mascot?

I will file a complaint with....Toronto Mike!

Happy birthday Cheryl!

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

I'm not confident Cheryl will ever see this post....

@Urooj Islam

I considered adding the Royals, but my records show she abandoned the team after three decades of faithful support.

Okay. I found this post. There are all the wishes. Who said I was a Royals fan since 1985. I found baseball a boring game years ago. Now I'm liking it. Anyway, it was a good day and I finally found all my birthday wishes. Thanks for all the wishes.

@Urooj, Toronto Mike is a well documented rabble rouser. I'm not surprised... ;)

December 13, 2018 @ 7:56 AM


Granted, he does get bonus points for the photoshopped chief wahoo cake :)

SO awesome! Happy Birthday Cheryl, I am a bit late, but missed the post.

Happy belated Birthday Cheryl!

Happy belated birthday Cheryl! I see the indians made a trade right after. Carlos Santana is back with the indians, while EE went from the indians to the mariners.

Happy belated birthday Cheryl!

Cheryl Traub

Well, that's okay if your wishes were late. Better late than never. Yes, EE is gone. No more Edwin Encarnacion, but Carlos Santana is back. EE didn't have that great of a year last year. Maybe this is a good move.

Happy birthday from this Ramblin' Gamblin' man and all the boys in the Silver Bullet Band, to one of my biggest fans! Your support is like a rock for me, and I appreciate the busload of faith you have in me. Here's wishing for all the best as you turn the page on another year.
