Today marked the return of Major League Baseball! The Toronto Blue Jays played their first game of the 2015 season against the NY Yankees in the Bronx, and BEAT them 6-1. Sweet victory! A great start for the Jays.
Now, I’m not saying we had any role in this win, but there are far too many coincidences that maybe, just maybe, we did have a hand, or um a paw, in this win!
If you’ve been reading my blog, then you’ll know we named our pup Carter, after Joe Carter of the Jays. The Joe Carter that hit THE home-run that won the Jays the 1993 World Series. Joe Carter wore number 29. In today’s game, a rookie, a young pup, named Devon Travis had his first hit in the Major Leagues, and it was… a home run! Guess what Travis’ jersey number is? Yup. Number 29.
Joe Carter wore 29, this young pup Travis now wears 29… there was a home run today…. coincidence? Who knows, who cares! The Jays won, by beating the Yankees no less, and we love it. Wahoo!
Yes Carter watched the game. Ok only for a few seconds at a time. He’s a young pup, a rookie member of this family, and he’ll learn how to sit through 9 innings soon enough. His name is CARTER and lots of home runs are what we’re hoping for from the Jays and the two baseball players in this house! So far so good. Good boy Carter, good boy!
