Blue Jays, Canada ripped by Fox's Harold Reynolds
TV commentator is hating on Canadian baseball
If you've been watching any of the Blue Jays playoff games, you've likely noticed that the regulars you're used to seeing bring baseball into your homes have been replaced by Fox Sports and their respective commentators.
Well, with Fox comes Harold Reynolds, a former MLB second baseman who apparently hasn't spent much time north of the border.
"We talked about foul balls into the stands... they don't play a lot of baseball in Canada, a lot of people aren't used to catching them"—@HReynoldsQuotes
Canadians didn't take his comments lightly and flooded the Twitterverse in disdain.
I didn't hear your stupid comments, <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/HaroldReynolds?src=hash">#HaroldReynolds</a>, because my igloo sprung a leak and I was patching it with maple syrup.—@ScorinPositions
Harold Reynolds needs to publicly apologize for his disrespectful comment directed at Canadian baseball fans .—@swirsk054

At this rate, Harold Reynolds will require both a personal bodyguard & a police escort if the ALDS comes back to Toronto.—@AndyFrostQ107
I won 7 gold gloves. I think part of winning them was cause I could catch. 😊—@Cdnmooselips33
Even non-baseball fans got in on the action, proving Canada really does #cometogether when it counts.
"Cdns aren't used to catching foul balls b/c they didn't grow up playing baseball" - Harold Reynolds. *as American lady gets smoked* <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/idiot?src=hash">#idiot</a>—@cmancuso19_
And just to make sure Canada knows they still have our backs, Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole came through big time.
SORRY CANADA. WE DIDN'T SAY IT. - signed Jay and Dan.—@fs1otoole
