As the Toronto Blue Jays continue to slide down the standings, there’s talk that their season maybe prematurely over. The team shows few signs of life and they’ve already fallen out of first place in the American League East to the suddenly surging Baltimore Orioles.
If this is the case, however, it doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to gain from the season. The Jays might be on their deathbed as a team, but there are still plenty of things left to enjoy and experience in the Jays’s crumbling universe.
Here’s a potential “bucket list” for Jays fans as the season chugs along:
10) Pet Edwin Encarnacion‘s parrot.
8) Take Dioner Navarro out for ice cream.
7) See the Jays win another series before the end of September.
6) Have an intelligible conversation with Munenori Kawasaki.
5) Volunteer to play infield and hit against left-handed pitchers.
4) Get medical advice from Adam Lind‘s mom.
3) Figure out what’s with the pink juice.
2) Place bets with the team on who’ll land on the DL next.
1) Have an intelligible conversation with John Gibbons.
Does this list sound right to you? Is there anything that should be added? Should anything be removed from the list? Have you already petted Encarnacion’s parrot? Let us know in the comment section below.
(Other options include: pet Lind’s goat; discuss the state of the American economy with Mark Buehrle; override a managerial decision from Gibbons; become an official citizen of the Dominican Republic; and have an intelligible conversation with Colby Rasmus.)
