So, the plan as of Friday was to go to the Jays game on Saturday afternoon with some pals who were in town for a visit. As we're having lunch, however, the girlfriend of one of the friends mentions that she's never been to the Royal Ontario Museum, so we all decide what the hell, we all see a lot of ballgames, let's check out the museum for a change of pace.
To summarize, NEVER EVER GO TO MUSEUMS
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
The four game sweep just seemed so...anti-climatic for me. With a great regular season and very good postseason, I was hoping the World Series would deliver on some sort of drama or competition. Ah well. Congrats to the Sox.
