Considering that we're in the home stretch of the holidays, it's very apropos that Rogers Sportsnet is rolling out a special this evening that's sure to get you in the giving spirit.

I encourage you to check out Vernon Wells "Perfect 10" documentary on Sportsnet tonight starting at 7:30pm EST.

While Vernon may have had a bit of an off season, he still continued his charity work this year through his Perfect 10 Foundation . It's a shame because Wells does a heck of a lot of charity work with the Blue Jays and it often gets overshadowed by other stories that the papers and bloggers would consider to be much juicier.

At the end of the day, even though ticket holders are paying his salary, Vernon Wells is a human being after all. I'm not saying that fans don't have the right to be upset at Vernon for this past year, but keep in mind that every player has a bad year from time to time. There is no doubt in my mind that Vernon Wells will be back with a vengeance next year.

In the words of my good friend Eyebleaf at Sports in the City , I Believe in Vernon Wells . And after watching tonight's Perfect 10 special, I'm pretty sure you will too.
