Did I just happen to overlook this, or did anyone else notice that Joe Carter will be at the Flashback Friday game on September 5th? This conveniently coincides with Joe Carter figurine day on September 7th.
So now I have to make the tough decision - do I go to meet Joe in person, or do I go to bring home a lifelike replica of him celebrating his walk-off HR? I imagine it's going to be an absolute clusterfuck on the Flashback Friday - anyone and everyone will be there wanting to get an autograph from Touch 'em All Joe. On the Jays website, it says he will be there from 5:45 - 6:30pm signing autographs. So if you are anticipating on being there, plan on getting there Backstreet-Boys-concert type early.
And oh yeah, the Jays will be playing the 1st place Tampa Bay Rays that weekend too. Do you think there's any chance that Joe might come out of retirement and DH for the Jays that weekend?
