Too bad about the result (Randy had me rooting for Toronto as well, despite my fondness for K.C.’s unorthodox manager) but excellent that my old friend has finally seen the light. Mayhis newfound fandom it continue into the 2016 regular season!
Here I am in the Rogers Center in 2005. I was not rooting for the Jays. Sadly, Randy, what with the Nats now being my second-favorite team, we shall now be on opposite sides forever.
Anyway, I will now find myself rooting for the Mets in a World Series for the first time since 1986. Perhaps I shall dig up some embarrassing photos from 1993 of me in a Mets hat. Or perhaps not. Some things from the pre-Internet days are best forgotten.
