Toronto is one of my favorite cities that I've never been to.

Sick thread. Too bad the Jays don't stand a chance in the AL East...GO SOX

Nice pictures. You need to do more Toronto threads.

Too many pictures of the Cubs and their fans, though. I would've preferred a hometown bias.

I noticed that you took a picture of Kevin Mench sliding into third. He grew up in the Newark area, about 5 or 10 minutes from where I am. So, there's a Delaware connection in your thread.

Nice shots, though a Toronto FC game would've fit the title better.

Ernie Whitt is now the Jays' first base coach.

I think black's part of almost every team's colour scheme now. The Jays wear the old powder blue uniforms on flashback fridays:



^^Dave Steib


xzmattzx: Cubs fans were out in force all weekend. A lot of them made the trip from Chicago, but there are Cubs fans everywhere. The first baseball pic shows Reed Johnson at bat. He was well liked by the fans but cut by the Jays at the beginning of the season. He got his revenge with a three run homer on Saturday.

There's a lot of cities that are represented way more than most. But there seems to always be several threads about a city at the same time. There were a ton of Calgary threads about a month or so ago, and there's a couple Vancouver ones at the moment.

Not that this bothers me, just something that seems to happen.
