Opening Day 2009: The Day has come!

In a blink of an eye, that excruciatingly long 6 month off-season has finally led its way to Opening Day. There’s a certain magic in the air that’s reminiscent of that faithful day on April 7th, 1977 when the Blue Jays began their journey to greatness.

I can imagine that the atmosphere at tonight’s game will be incredible, and I can’t wait to finally step into the Rogers Centre for another incredible season of Blue Jays baseball. I will be wearing my throwback power blues loud and proud, and will likely have calluses on my hands from clapping so hard.

Feel free to follow along with my pre, during, and post-game tweets on my Twitter page.


Whether you’re at the Rogers Centre or watching from home, you gotta believe. Go Jays Go!
