Ep. 18 – Baseball is Weird

This week we’re talking about sports (YAY!), and specifically, we’re talking about baseball. That’s right, America’s (dullest) pastime. The World Series is happening right now, and the Chicago Cubs are trying to overcome a crazy-long drought. They haven’t won since 1908, which is rather nuts. We didn’t even have Facebook in 1908!! Jeff and I talk a little about Major League Baseball in general, and our perspectives on “Canada’s Team”, the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays last won a World Series when we were in our prime fandom-incubating years, but that didn’t really stick on either of us. The fact that the Blue Jays are suddenly good at baseball again fits in with the nostalgia cycles that Hollywood is cashing in on right now.

There’s plenty of talk about the controversy, doping, athletic prowess, and super bacteria out there but I want to focus on my favourite part of the games: the costumes and hair. You know, sports stuff. Specifically, let’s take a close look at […]
