The A’s and Jays played in front of evidently friends and family in Oakland tonight. And like the game played in front of virtually nobody in Pittsburgh, it was a back and forth game ending on a walk off homer.
The Blue Jays took the lead with 2 outs in the top of the 9th. The A’s tied it and won on Brandon Inge’s grand slam.
It was damn good baseball.
And it was damn pretty baseball.
After years of wearing ugly or dull or totally unmemorable uniforms, the A’s and the Blue Jays finally LOOK like the A’s and the Blue Jays again!
The Blue Jays have the bird with the maple leaf back, looking more like George Bell or Joe Carter than they have for a decade and a half. And check out the yellow unis that read “A’s” instead of “Athletics.”
It’s starting to feel like all is right with the world again.
Now break out the dark green jerseys and I will be one happy Sully!
