Happy Halloween! The New Blue Jays Logo Jay-O-Lantern

It’s hard to believe it’s only been three days since the official end of the 2011 baseball season. And already, I’m resorting to adding any semblance of Blue Jays to ordinary activities just so I can keep my sanity.

This year, I decided to carve a pumpkin with the rumoured to be new logo for the Toronto Blue Jays, but it actually ended up looking more like the old Blue Jays logo. Have a look at the split screen and let me know what you think.

Here’s a wider angle of the Jay-O-Lantern for full effect:


And it appears as though this whole Blue Jays pumpkin carving thing may be catching on. I’m not sure if you’ve seen Jose Bautista’s Twitter profile picture lately, but he’s chosen last year’s Bautista inspired Jay-O-Lantern as a Halloween treat for his followers.

If you have any Blue Jays inspired jack-o-lanterns, feel free to let me know via Twitter @BlueJayHunter or feel free to send a picture to bluejayhunter@gmail.com and I’ll post them here on the blog.

Have a Happy Halloween everyone!

UPDATE: check out this great Jose Bautista pumpkin carving courtesy of Blue Jays on Fire. It definitely gets top marks for its likeness to Joey Bats … way better than my version last year.

And this take on the old school Blue Jays logo courtesy of @_skennedy. This is a great carving as well, and I especially like the hat on top of the pumpkin. Nice touch!
