Today, the Toronto Blue Jays take their first swing in the playoffs since 1993! Blue Jay fans everywhere have been waiting for 22 years for the Jays to make a run for the World Series since they claimed back-to-back World Series Titles in 1992 and 1993. Now is the time – the Blue Jays clinched the playoff bid and face off with the Texas Rangers at Rogers Centre today at 3:37 pm EDT.
There is little more thrilling than being among a crowd of blue, feeling the pulse of an entire city, and cheering your heart out. Perhaps CEO Michael Medline of Canadian Tire knows the power of Blue more than most. He gave about 5,000 employees the day off so they can cheer on the Jays. “I’m a mammoth Jays fan from when I was there on opening day in 1977,” said the executive who once dreamed of becoming president of the Blue Jays.
Blue Jay fever is spreading like wildfire and StorageMart has caught a case of the Blues. StorageMart store manager, Andrea Ionescu, coordinated our official Blue Jays Spirit Day and all of our staff across our 30 stores in the GTA are invited to sport their Blue Jays gear.
Andrea excitedly said, “We are all going to wear our Jays gear…and make signs. Even though we couldn’t be there, we want them to know that although we’re at work we still have them in our thoughts and we want them to do well.”
