Still a Toronto Blue Jay ...




Reason number 3,543 why you should despise Bob Costas, and everything he stands for in life:

"The starting pitcher, obviously, for the American League, representing, at least for the moment, the Toronto Blue Jays ... Roy Halladay."

Oh, well done, Robert. Bravo.

Fuck Costas. This is about Doc, and Joe Maddon rightfully selecting him to start tonight's All-Star game in the house that Albert Pujols built.

Look, I'm hella proud of Aaron Hill; a couple of years ago I predicted he'd be an all-star second baseman. But no one represents Toronto like Doc.

For those of you who might be new to the blog, I made it my mission this summer to be in attendance for every Halladay start at the Rogers Centre SkyDome. I wanted to make sure I never took Doc for granted. It's ironic, because the thought of him being traded never even crossed my mind.

So far, I'm seven-for-nine. I missed Doc's start on May 17th, while a good friend tied the knot, and his effort on June 29th, while my Grandmother lay waiting for what comes after this crazy, earthly experience.

I know Doc will only be out there for two or three innings, but if there's one road start I could attend this season, it would be tonight's.

I trust that the esteemed Bob Costas won't be doing on-field introductions so, whether you're watching at home, or at a bar, take a minute to appreciate the hat Doc will surely tip to the crowd. It's the same hat he'll be wearing in the Baseball Hall of Fame one day.

"Roy Halladay, TORONTO BLUE JAYS."

For now and, hopefully, forevermore.

I came out of my half-zombie state to say Bob Costas can choke on a Roy Halladay cutter. Dick.

Tell Costas to eff off and go cover the NBA or the Olympics and stay away from baseball entirely.

I used to like Costas years ago, when he simply came across like a smart guy who enjoyed sports.

Now he comes across as a smarmy fuck who thinks he's too good for the gig and far more intelligent than anyone watching.

In short, eat a dick Bubby, you pretentious twat.

Costas is such a colossal douchebag.

The Ack is right, smarmy fuck.

I'm glad so many of you hate Bob Costas, too. And that link was delightful, Schultzy.

I remember Doc from when he was in the bullpen and first seeing him live was the game in which he had the near no-hitter until Bobby Fuckin' Higgenson smacked a home run, with two outs in the 9th. He was what got me back into baseball after I had given up on the Jays after the 1994 Strike. If he has to leave because of Vernon's contract....
