The point I was making was that it was 'Canada's Team'.
I wonder who the Englishman was.

Them and the Montreal Expos.

The point I was making is that the USA wasn't pi$$ed that a Baseball franchise in Toronto won the World Series any more than a Canadian is pi$$ed year after year watching a bunch of NHL teams (made mostly of Canadians) in US Cities winning the Stanley Cup. I'd root for Toronto over the NY Yankees any day of the week.

Danny Bradford Cox born in Northhampton England. For all I know he could have been an Army brat and grew up here in the US.

The problem was the expos didn't get the support in Quebec. just like the grizzlies (NBA) didn't get the support in Vancouver. You guys have the same problem with hockey in a few of youir southern, midwest states. Phoenix for one. Sometimes experiments just fail.

Southern states are fickle in anything pro. The University of Tennessee Volunteers have more people showing up for football than the Tennessee Titans NFL team.

I am not sure how well attended the Blue Jays games are but I would bet that I could drive up and get a ticket for any game. But it is not just the Blue Jays, I once saw the Florida Marlins play at their place in Miami. I was sitting on the first base line and I could have shouted across the stadium to people on the third base line.

I don't know how hockey goes but I think there is parity and a team salary cap. In baseball there is a salary cap but you can go over the cap as long as you pay something towards the league or something like that. That is why the Yanks win so many championships because they have town support and will pay whatever the cost to bring the World Series back.

we know how to play baseball

Okay, let's go over the ground rules.
You can't leave first until you chug a beer.
Any man scoring has to chug a beer.
You have to chug a beer at the top of all odd-numbered innings.
Oh, and the fourth inning is the beer inning.

I'll take the dodgers thank you, never have liked the yankees,
and there was a time when they were just as much a part of new york,
as the yankees, then they decided there was a better place to play.

With all those World Series wins, it has to be true that we are God's # 1 team!

The reason the fans got angry about the players labour problems is in baseball only the umpire can call a strike
