Sportsenfreude in Toronto
Now that the baseball season is over, I must bring to your attention the most ridiculous comment in the history of sports talk radio. After Oakland lost the wild card match to KC, Toronto FAN 590 morning blowhards Brady and Walker were chortling that Oakland is riding a 1-15 streak in playoff matches in which the Athletics had a chance to advance to the next round. One of Brady or Walker (who can tell them apart?) had the audacity to say that he would rather be a Toronto Blue Jay fan and miss the playoffs for two decades than be an Oakland fan. Really? This would be like my English relatives saying that they are much happier as England football fans than Dutch fans who have had to suffer through all those World Cup and European Cup close calls over the years. More on this subject if and when I have time.
