Cricket and Baseball
I love Toronto. Only in a city this diverse would I find out that India won the world cricket championship, without the media. It was even my first guess when I stepped out of the subway and saw about 25 people cheering and waving Indian flags.
Last night I went to the Jays home opener. I’d never been to a sellout game (or anything even close) and the crowd fever was contagious. I was excited enough anyway. Congrats to Robbie Alomar and Pat Gillick for their inductions into the Hall of Fame. Now I wonder if they’ll retire Alomar’s #12. Toronto teams don’t seem to like retiring numbers, but I like the gesture to players who contribute so much to the local sports scene.
