So here it is, the 9th game of the season and already some of us are starting to wander close to the ledge. I think it's fare to say that if the Jays lose this game the season is a total loss!
I hate to make everything all about me but what more do I have to do? I tried cute birds, I tried fire and Voodoo, same results! I'm starting to think that I'm the jinx. I may have to be banned from doing these gamethreads for the sake of the team. So I guess there is nothing for it but to pull out all the stops, go insane and spend all night making a Photoshop disasterpiece. Yes I may have lost it, but that's what happens when your team loses to the lowly OriLOLes!
If you don't see yourself somehow represented in the above masterpiece then it's probably because you sent Bowling Guy an email saying: "I'm amazed that somebody could be that much of a loser. I bet TFSML lives in his parents basement and is in his under pants all day. hahaha". Seriously though, if you're watching me in my underwear while I Photoshop away in my Mom's basement, who's the bigger loser?
Orioles lead the series 2-0

So it's up to young Kyle Drabek to show us the way forward. Let's see that hope, that pedigree, that glimpse of greatness we all long for. Time for some of the flash, talent and youth that cost us seeing Roy Halladay pitch every 5 days(did I mention the ledge?).
