Flashback Friday: The Blue Jays Thriller Video
When scouring the internet for Blue Jays content to feature for Flashback Fridays, occasionally I’ll come across videos like this that are too good not to share. For the final Flashback Friday of 2012, we take a look back at the 1984 Blue Jays in Spring Training courtesy of Peter Gross.
I really don’t know what to say, other than thank you to Mr. Gross for posting these old pieces on Youtube. And below are just a few of the frightening faces displayed by Cliff Johnson, Dennis Lamp, Jim Clancy, Buck Martinez and Garth Iorg.
In fact, I even went to the liberty of making a GIF of Cliff Johnson’s reaction just because it’s so damn hilarious, and actually kind of reminds me of the dramatic hamster for some reason. It seriously might be my favourite Blue Jays GIF ever.
Also, be sure to keep your eyes out for a cameo by Baltimore Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey, and some sweet dance moves put on by Alfredo Griffin.
