Let’s pitch for hope, Blue Jays!

To get you hyped up for the Jays’ post-season run, here are some stats that you can happily spout off at the next house party, bar or Jays fans message board to make you sound impressively intelligent!

So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
