So apparently it was a really big deal when the Blue Jays won back-to-back World Series in 1992 and 1993. I wasn’t living in Canada at the time but I heard all about it from friends and relatives, who were suitably excited. I guess it was the first time a Canadian team had ever won the World Series, which is pretty awesome when you think about it. And two years running, no less.
So for today’s installment of Wishful Skillin’ I decided to travel back in time and catch the Blue Jays game 6 defeat over the Philadelphia Phillies* in ’93.
*Sidenote: as far as team names go, I am kind of loving this one. Philadelphia Phillies! I think that sports franchises should use shortened versions of the names of their cities wherever possible. Keep things simple, right?
Anyway, the Fox loves baseball so he came with me. Here we are in the stands as Joe Carter celebrates after hitting his game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
