Blue Jays fans who hate Toronto share their inner turmoil
It's a season that's moved Toronto fans to sing their team's praises.... especially last night, after the Blue Jays clinched the American League East division title... for the first time in 22 years.
But today we're asking whether Toronto's big league team has managed to clinch the even bigger title of being "Canada's" team.
Because for all their on-field victories this year, there are still a lot of folks who just can't stomach the idea of cheering on a team from Toronto.
And that includes Vancouver's own, Rafe Mair.
As a child I was a Habs fan not because I knew anyone in the city of Montreal, but because I couldn't stand the Toronto Maple Leafs '"Captain Canada Crap".- Rafe Mair. former radio host
- Albert Nerenberg is a self-described 'laughologist', and co-director of the documentary "Let's All Hate Toronto". He was in Kingston, Ontario.
- Robin Brown was a sports journalist for CBC for 20 years. She grew up in Toronto as a Blue Jays fan and now produces the radio program, Windsor Morning. She joined us from Windsor.
- Michael Baumann is a baseball writer for the website Grantland. He joined us from Houston, Texas.
So what do you think? Can you support the Jays and hate Toronto at the same time?
