today i was at lansdowne station waiting to catch the subway to head over to the skydome when a father with his two young kids walked past me, all decked out in blue jays gear. the younger of the two boys stopped in front of me and asked me something, which i didn’t hear. pulling off my headphones, i asked him to repeat himself, and he said, excitedly, "are you going to the blue jays game?" i told him i was, and he replied, "we are too!" to which i gestured at his oversized jersey and said, "i thought you might be!" the moment reminded me of how excited i’d get going to jays games as a kid, before it became old hat, so i hope my comment didn’t sound too condescending.
