1. Sorry for your luck...
Edited on Wed Apr-18-07 04:34 PM by Chimpys_Last_Stand
...I've been to Jays games several times myself, though not in the last few years. I have actually noticed a somewhat malevolent tone coming from the stands at Toronto hockey and basketball games, over the last year. That's from what I've heard by watching the games on TV. But the booing has been against the home team. A small but vocal minority of Toronto fans have become a fairly impatient and to some degree an obnoxious lot, at least in my opinion, over the last year or so. 40 years without a Stanley Cup? A perennially bad basketball team (until this year)? I did watch on TV the game you were at, and from what I heard it sounded like "Blue Jays suck!" coming from the fans, many of whom were Red Sox fans like yourself on some bus trip up from Boston or environs. Again, I heard it through the were there.

I agree that fans can be obnoxious, and child like, but happens everywhere. I watched a Jays game last year where they were on the road somewhere and the fans there were ruthlessly chanting "Blue Jays suck!!" non-stop, virtually throughout the entire game. It got so bad that the announcers actually commented on it.

Anyway, I hope you have a better visit to Toronto next time.
