This is Gonna Be Huge

A Warning To the Unwitting

Over the course of the next three days, the world will witness a spectacle unlike any other heretofore seen in this mortal realm. I speak, of course, of the impending series pitting the now-buoyant Blue Jays against the hungry Mariners. Walls will crumble. Fates will be decided. Expectations will be lowered.

Run to the hills.

It all begins tonight when the Poet faces the Piranha (that’d be Batista [4-11] up against Parrish [1-0]).

In the days ahead, these two powerhouses continue their epic struggle, charging bolt-throwing immortals with the task of hurling an orb from a mound of earth (bolt-throwing immortals who won't include Bedard, Halladay or Burnett, but, um, still) at massive, club-wielding men. The Rogers Centre will tremble to its very foundations, surely. Verily, the gods await the outcome of this awesome string of contests with great interest.

For real, though, woeful as the Mariners might (unexpectedly) be, if you live in Toronto, how can you pass up the opportunity to see The Human Awesomeness that is Ichiro?

Wasn't that incredible? The Republica song, I mean. So catchy. What ever happened to Saffron, anyway?

I'm willing to bet Saffron plays on a grassless infield as well. Errm, over the line?
