The Err Up Here: Toronto Blue Jays Sweep the Boston Red Sox

Mel ToliaoCorrespondent IApril 6, 2008

The dome was closed today. I couldn't believe it. It was a sunny 14c, not a cloud in the sky and the dome was closed. Luckily, this was only the 2nd worst part of the day (because of the lack of ATM's, TV's and poor speakers, we missed a whole half inning of the game taking out cash).

The Jays played like we all know they can. The Doc went 8 strong, even striking out 6 which is kinda high for him. And we all let out a gasp of relief as Jeremy Accardo picked up the 7th Jay strikeout in the game allowing us all to get a free slice of pizza. Oh, and on a side note, he picked up his third save of the year too!

Johnny Mac had a pretty eventful game too.  Making a huge defensive play in the eigth against Dustin Pedroia, going to the turf to knock down a ball and then tossing it over to first to get the out.  Of course on the very next ball in play, he crashed into Vernon Wells, almost injuring "The Franchise" there and then.  They both got up to everyone's joy. 

One of the greatest feelings in the world though is sticking it to all the Red Sox fans who either lived in the GTA and are assholes for jumping onto the band wagon or drove in from Boston to see their team. I figure about 25% of the fans were Sox fans, and though I commend them for their dedication, it's gotta suck to travel 884 km (according to Google maps) to see your team get swept.

And then the sacks were drunk and there were 2-out with Frank Thomas coming up to the plate. The Sox just put in Manny Delcarmen and the following ensues:

S: Turn your camera on, this is gonna be a home run. I can feel it. He's gonna hit a grand slam.

That's right, my boy called the grand slam.  The video of my friends and I going crazy over this can be found here.
