Morning @ the Mattick: Report Day
Today position players are required to report, but that doesn’t really mean much for your Blue Jays. Most of the position players are already here and the one absentee — Scott Rolen — lives in Florida, sooo…consider him reported.
Looks like I’ve been in Florida too long already. When I strolled into Starbucks this morning, the girl behind the counter goes, “Hey, it’s Jordan like the river!” I guess her geography skills aren’t that great, though, because she spelled my name “Jordon” on the cup. Ah, well.
It’s a tad chilly here today, but my rule in Florida is to never complain about the weather down here, especially when most of you are reading from the frigid north. It’s about 55 and sunny, so it’s not really that bad. Some other media types have already been whining about having to wear their jackets.
The security guard at the entrance to the Mattick this morning was also complaining about the cold, but I said, “Comparatively, it’s really not that bad. It’s gorgeous out.” He said he used to live in New York, so he understood. After I told him how cold it was in Toronto, he blurted out, “Ugh! Fuhgeddaboutit!”
OK, time to work
