Thumbs up Congrats to the Raptors & Their Fans

7th game at home & they're on to the conference finals... first time ever. They beat the Heat to do it. I am not, never have been & have no interest in becoming a basketball fan, but well done to the team & Lord knows Toronto fans need something to cheer about. The Jays brought us close last year but... it just didn't work out.

Now it's on to the Cavs... doesn't mean anything to me as I don't know a jump shot from a cheap shot. The fans & still partying in Jurassic Park - the outdoor area where fans congregate with a big screen TV... love it - Jurassic Park!

Now to try & figure out what that Blue Jays, dugout clearing brawl was about. Joey Bats took a heck of a fist to the face. He must have been a tad rude to the Texas player...lOL

Okay, I don't know basketball but even I have heard the name Lebron James... sounds like it will be a huge surprise if Toronto wins.

Be a good week or so for the sports bars though...

Sue - as for the Jays brawl, it was a very late and hard takeout slide to second by Bautista that started it. Odor went right at him after the throw. Clocked him pretty square too...

I JUST saw a replay of that slide & considering the bad blood between the Jays & Texas... it was going to happen sooner or later. Man, did he get clocked good, though!

The internet response has been fun (sorrow to drift the thread Raptor fans...)
