Christmas has once again come and gone and someone special must have read my Christmas wish-list posted here two weeks ago, that retro standings board I wrote about was waiting for me under the tree Sunday morning!
This past week my wife and I have been watching Game 6 of the 1992 World Series one inning at a time, her reaction to Tom Henke blowing the save in the 9th was priceless (yes kids, in Tom Henke’s last appearance as a Blue Jay he gave up the game-tying run with the Jays just one strike away from the championship, of course Dave Winfield helped us forget all about that). Throughout the game the CBS feed would cut-away to a SkyDome packed full of fans just watching the game on the JumboTron waving their foam blue “J”s around in the air (Dear Blue Jays, please hand out those foam blue “J”‘s again in 2012. 20th anniversary + return of blue = do it!). I can’t wait to see that passion return to the city, slowly you can feel it starting to return.
Last week I started my 2011 MLB logo and uniform year-in-review looking at National League teams alphabetically from Arizona through New York, this week I’m continuing with part two of this series which will be looking at the remainder of the National League clubs as well as the first four American League teams.
