I was in the nosebleed section when Carter hit the '93 Series homer to win the Series. What a thrill that was. I was up over third base and couldnt see the ball land and it was Joe jumping up and down that told me the World Series was ours for the second time.

One of my families nuggets of history, was my great grandmother was such an avid fan of baseball, she had season tickets right from the get go of April 1977 when the Jays opened at home @ Exhibition stadium (snow and all) right until she passed in the early 80's.

I try to make opening day a thing in our house hold too... Every year the healthies of Hotdogs and snacks for supper. Try to see the Jay's and Sox first pitches of the regular season (even if watching form my phone on the way home...)

Yes sir... itís unfortunate that my two favouite teams are in the same division (AL East: Sox and Jays) but that does mean twice the thumping of the Yankees.

Also... AL East, I think is the toughest division in all sports. Year after year power houses like Boston, New York, Toronto, (Baltimore has played spoiler a few times).... itís never an easy division to win.

So true, BR. Over the years, I have rooted for the Cubs and the Red Sox to win the World Series just to break the jinx. Both have succeeded.
