    Just came in from cleaning up after my brew day and turned on the TV. The Blue Jay's vs the Oakland A's game is on. They were showing how the wind was blowing in the outfield and there were two massive flags flying. One of course was the Stars and Stripes, the other was the Canadian flag. Very classy, gave me a warm fuzzy. We are in so many ways very different, and yet we are in so many ways very much alike.

    When I lived in Cincinnati the church my wife and I went to there was a couple where the husband actually grew up in Niagara Falls, Ontario which not counting the international border crossing is only about 45 minutes from where I grew up. Always thought it was kinda funny because this was a guy where he grew up in a whole other country but in a lot of ways my experience growing up was a lot more relatable to his than those Ohioians who grew up in the same country but hundreds of miles away

    Speaking of baseball - anyone remember (goes back to early 80's) Dave Winfield, then a Yankee, threw a warm up ball in Toronto that hit and killed a seagull. He got taken in on a Cruelty To Animals charge. :) Nothing came of it other than laughter and embarrassment. And ironically, he later played for the Jays.
