Le Baseball Part Deux

Found another clip. This one is from 1979 and promotes a Blue Jays/Brewers match.

Another jazzy tune with footage from a match between the Jays and the Mariners at the old Kingdome.

Le Baseball

Questionable clip selection by Radio-Canada for this baseball promo. Although I do like the jazzy tune.

From 1977, promoting the first home opener at Olympic Stadium. Lots of footage from Jarry Park.

Re. Beeston and AA

Lots of discussion yesterday about comments made by Paul Beeston and Alex Anthopoulos. They said if fans want the payroll to increase, they'll have to buy tickets and come to the games.

This is a simple case of putting the cart before the horse. If they want fans to buy tickets, Beeston and AA must give fans a reason to do so. In other words, put together a team that will contend.

Slight faux pas, but it doesn't change the state of the Blue Jays. This is a still a team that looks to be on the brink of success.

Remember, players ultimately determine the success of the franchise; not the opinions of management.

Re. The Hockey54 Show

Bad news, folks. The Hockey54 Show was cancelled earlier today.

A big thank you to Launy Schwartz, Sammy (our technical producer), Mr. Schultz of BCSS, 102.5 The Game, fans/writers/bloggers of the Nashville Predators and our featured guests. And of course, a HUGE thank you to everyone who listened to the show.

Launy and I are very proud of what we put together. It was a lot of fun!

7 solid episodes, all of which are available as podcasts ;)
