I got forty red white and blue shoestrings
and a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can get rid of these things?

Just some dumb lists to share before I head off to the ballpark.

Ho hum. The Jays show what they can do with a couple of timely hits and pull out the finale against the Angels, 4-3. The Jays allowed only 10 runs during the three game set, but of course its the Jays so they scored only 7 and won just once.
