Bronx Zoo Road Show
The Yankees are in town (Toronto) and with them, as always, comes a media circus. There's the Japanese media who cling to their players like flies to honey. Reggie Jackson is traveling with the team and that always evokes cries of "Reg-gie, Reg-gie" as fans beg for his autograph. With the Bronx Bombers struggling on the field there's always always a chance that George Steinbrenner with lower the boom on either Brian Cashman, the GM or Joe Torre, the manager.
It's always an experience to be around the Rogers Centre when the Yanks are here! Today was no exception. I was there to see a couple of the players and watched the circus with a degree of amusement.
The Blue Jays won the game again tonight! It was much closer than last night's 7-2 victory and a steal of home by Aaron Hill added to the excitement.
The Jays and Yankees wrap up the three-game series tomorrow night and then the road show moves on to the next city. Roger Clemens will be joining them in the next week or so and that will add to the carnival atmosphere. Maybe the Rocket will launch the Yankees back into contention.
