Blue Jays fandom a national affair

This week, the New York Times wrote up the seemingly improbable national support garnered by the much-loved Toronto Blue Jays.

Reporter David Waldstein writes:
Canada, a nation of some 35 million, has only one Major League Baseball team, with the Expos having moved to Washington in 2005. Some Canadians may prefer the Minnesota Twins, the Seattle Mariners or the Boston Red Sox, but from Vancouver to Moose Jaw to Witless Bay just south of here, the Blue Jays are the home team.

The account opens with a scene from St. John's, which the writer aptly points out is closer to Portugal's Azores than it is to Toronto yet still very much Blue Jays country.
