The harvest moon was bright and round over the Rogers Centre Monday night as the Blue Jays hosted he Chicago Cubs. Marcus Stroman was dealing and the fast-paced game reached the middle of the seventh inning by eight o'clock. A proud Blue Jays seventh-inning stretch tradition is the singing of "OK Blue Jays"--rather than appealing to a deity to act favourably on a country that uses the name of a continent to refer to themselves--before "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

During the song, J Force--the Blue Jays' dance team--leads the fans in a simple dance that involves some clapping and some fist pumping. On Monday, Colby Rasmus, who has been with Toronto since mid-2011, showed that he knew those moves too:

Seeing Rasmus participating in this piece of Blue Jays culture while sitting on the bench during what may be his last days as a Blue Jay just breaks my heart.
