Attendance looks similar to that of a Jays' game.

My dream is that one day, I will again get to use the "FULLHOUSE!!1" cheer in a non-Bob Saget related manner. Someday ...

Great stuff man... really enjoy reading this journey of yours... it looks like you cut through my city of Toledo to get to Cleveland... enjoy Ohio! Pennsylvania is much nicer

Did you get to talk to the Bongo drum guy?

@ Garrett: On that night, it was actually less than the Jays game. And I hope your dream comes true, buddy. Someday ...

@ Aquamelli: Thanks a lot, my friend, and thanks for reading. Much appreciated. I did cut through Toledo. Ohio is, well, Ohio. Loved Progressive Field, though, and the area around the two stadiums downtown.

@ Moneypuck: I did. Really nice guy. He's met fans from all the over world. He said we Jays fans and Indians fans have a lot in common. And he let me have a go on the drum. Good people, for sure.

Are you funding this trip or is the Globe and Mail funding it? Not really my business. Just curious. Do you have reporter credentials from the paper to talk to people?

Always loved going to an open field concept. Still love the Dome but there is something about sitting in the sun watching baseball on a Sunday afternoon.

@ William: It's a freelance project with The Globe; they're coving some expenses. And I'm sitting amongst the fans, and letting them know I'm a journalist. Most people are willing to chat.

@ On The Fence: The Dome is a lot better on a sunny day, when it's open. It's the cavernous feel of the place that will now bother me a lot more.
