The Blue Jays are in a fight for their playoff lives tonight and fans from Durham Region are ready for the excitement.
Blue jays fever is alive and well in Durham Region as the Toronto Blue Jays fight for a spot in the post season.
“I have season tickets for the Jays and I am a pretty big follower of the Jays and I hope they make the final playoff push to make that wildcard spot.”
Thursday night is a big game for the Blue Jays. Toronto has a one-game lead on the Orioles for the first American League wild card. A Baltimore win would tie things up with just three games left to play.
“I think that they are going to pull through.”
“We are going to make some magic and make it happen.”
Jays fans lined up at the Oshawa Centre early Thursday morning for a chance to meet Jays legend Roberto Alomar.
“I am a huge Jays fan always have been Roberto Alomar has kind of been my generation of the greats and we are breading a new generation of Jays fans.”
Nicole brought her two children to meet Roberto and hopes to continue the blue jays fandom in her family.
“Honestly I just love watching them whether they win or lose I am just such a diehard fan that I love watching them and ever since I was a kid I never really got to go to game so hopefully I’ll be able to take these guys to games there they make the playoffs or not… Which I am pretty sure they will.”
As for fans jumping on the Blue Jays train now that they are winning, some fans are not as enthusiastic about the recent surge in interest in their team.
“If you are going to jump on the wagon make sure you get your facts right I’ve had too many people call umpires referees or other stupid things like that… I just hate them.”
If you missed out on Roberto Alomar, Toronto Maple Leafs legend Doug Gilmour will be at the Oshawa Centre on Saturday.
