Some Blue Jays Stuff Showed Up on SNL

My apologies for being about 24 hours late with this, but for those who happen to watch Saturday Night Live, you probably noticed plenty of Blue Jays merchandise on one of the show’s sketched last night.

In an attempt to recreate a bar from Ryan Gosling’s hometown of Cornwall, Ontario, this sketch was littered with Toronto Blue Jays paraphernalia.

In fact, so much so, that it was almost like the set designer was like “quick, buy everything Blue Jays you can find”.


Still, it was pretty cool to see Canada’s baseball team on a global stage such as Saturday Night Live. The Blue Jays earned a lot of credibility south of the border this past season; while before something like this may have faded into the background, people actually noticed the Blue Jays stuff this time!

Now, if only there had been a walk-on appearance by Chris Colabello or something, that would’ve been the cherry on top of this entire sketch.
