TORONTO — Just past the midway point of the season, the media seem to have given up on the struggling Blue Jays.
“Jays starting to face reality — It’s over,” the Toronto Star pronounced in its Monday editions after the baseball team fell to 45-52 following a sweep by visiting Tampa Bay.
“Try again next year?” offered the Toronto Sun.
“Blue Jays throwing away a big opportunity,” the Globe and Mail weighed in.
Tim Leiweke, the new president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, sees a different story, however.
“These fans in this marketplace are pretty unbelievable,” he said in an interview. “I’m looking at the Jays and how they’re drawing — win, lose or draw — and it’s a real testament to how they’ve become Canada’s team.

Why all babies are Royalty really
My granddaughter has decided that steamed courgettes are just so yesterday, which is worrying for her mum given that she only persuaded Lyla to like them about a week ago. Lyla’s method of making this clear is to throw the courgette slices all over the kitchen with enormous gusto. She has the same stubborn mule face after doing so that reminds me of her Mum at the same age. So the bolshie genes are intact.
Lyla’s diet is remarkably eclectic, in that it consists of three colours (green gunge, midbrown gunge and orange gunge) with additional variety provided by off-white milk and light yellow apple filling gunge for pudding. From time to time she eats chicken bits, but gives lamb the kitchen courgette treatment. Anyway, Katherine Duchess of Cambridgeshire has this all to look forward to – or rather, her bevvy of servants…
