Scene: Blue Jays’ Home Opener

Tough time on the field, and in the stands.


WHERE: SkyDome (aka, reluctantly, the Rogers Centre)

WHEN: Monday, April 9

WHAT: It was a rough one, the Jays’ return to home turf. After some strong early-inning defense by infielders Yunel Escobar and Brett Lawrie, and the game’s first run by outfielder Colby Rasmus things eventually devolved; closer Sergio Santos struggled to hit the plate in the ninth inning and left the field to a chorus of boos. Rough for other reasons, too: beer sales restrictions didn’t go quite so smoothly, either. True, there were fewer scuffles in the stands than in previous years—but the tension just moved outside, where frustrated fans bickered, scrapped, chugged brews between floors, negotiated lengthy queues, and got thoroughly annoyed with each other. The Old Brawl Game?

    This kind of news makes me want to stay home and watch the game on TV.

      What?

      It sounds like this “reporter” didn’t want to be there.

      Atmosphere was amazing, you could find a fast-moving line if you were willing to walk a few sections over.

      No rowdiness around me. Good time had by all until the top of the 9th.

      Went again last night and had a great time again.

    Pretty brutal when a Red Sox fan can’t go to a baseball game in Toronto without being swarmed by so-called Blue Jays fans who can’t hold a few beers. What is this crap. Not one guy upset with Red Sox fan but 5 guys taking swings at one guy not only that taking blind side shots. Real men, makes me sick and disgusted. Maybe these guys would like to be Real men and try doing it one on one instead. Bunch of low-lifes.
