There’s a New Love in my Life–The Dunedin Blue Jays

There’s a new love in my life, but let me start a different way…

I was born in Central Pennsylvania, I’m a Phillies fan at heart and always will be, but since we moved to Florida there’s been someone else. Well, may be I should say, someones else.

You see, I live three blocks from the Dunedin Blue Jays’ stadium. At first, I went there just when the Phillies or Threshers were there, like you’d expect, but the more I went, the more I was hooked. You see, there is something different about Dunedin, you feel like you belong. Go to a few games and they get to know you. There’s a smile as you walk through the gates, a wave from the ladies at the concession stand (even if you don’t need anything) and a real sense of community. It doesn’t feel like a big corporation, it feels like a team that belongs to the town, you feel like you’re part of something.

Every game a local charity holds their 50/50 drawing, there’s a toy drive for the local children’s Christmas charity, there’s the annual charity bowling tournament, sponsorship of little league teams, you name it, the Blue Jays are there for the community.

That’s why when I saw this article in the paper today, I smiled because OF COURSE they’d support TJ…

Boy with Famous Lemonade Stand Takes Pitch to Dunedin Blue Jays Playoff Game

In case you missed the original story: Dunedin neighbor is sour on boy’s lemonade stand

Then there was this: Dunedin boy with lemonade stand reaps windfall; neighbor under city review

So, now you know why, I’m seeing someone else…at least some of the time. So if you’re looking for me tomorrow night, you’ll know where I’ll be…
