Lazy Sunday Links: Mother's Day Edition
By Ian Hunter
True story related to baseball and my mom - when I was younger, I was so rabid for anything to do with baseball that she was willing to take me to see "A League Of Her Own" in the theatres.
It may have been a questionable film to go see for a young nine year old boy, but I thank my mom for supporting my love for the game of baseball ... even if it meant taking me to see a movie starring Geena Davis.
Elsewhere in the blogosphere ...
Our friend Eyebleaf from Sports and the City continues on his adventure to visit all 30 Major League Ballparks in 60 days with "Stealing Home". Earlier this week, he visited the ivy at the famed Wrigley Field. Lesson learned: you need a Canadian passport to buy beer at Wrigley Field.
Speaking of cheesetastic baseball movies and the Cubbies, did you know that scenes from the film "Rookie of the Year" were shot at Wrigley Field? Again, more useless baseball trivia you will only find at The Blue Jay Hunter!
I swear, this kind of stuff will come in use one day when that is the question on Final Jeopardy or the one million dollar question on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Who ever thought that it would be fashion conscious to wear a Blue Jays hat? The Globe and Mail reports that Blue Jays caps are one of the best selling lids in New York City, even outselling the hometown New York Mets.
They say it has to do large in part to Drake's cover in Vibe Magazine and some outtakes released by them from recent photoshoot featuring the Degrassi star turned rapper with one of the Cooperstown Blue Jays cap.
Lastly, you probably saw the hilarious video of Bruce Drennan ripping on the Cleveland Indians earlier this week. In the video below, I took the liberty of editing all the OH!'s together in this Bruce Drennan remix.
For those counting, it was 16 OH!'s in approximately 5 minutes.
