I used to join a ton of roto-leagues every year. In fact, I just got an e-mail last week from my old posse asking who was going to join one this year. I'm so out of the loop, I can't.

Being a baseball fan is tough and time consuming. Once I went back to school, I didn't really have time for it. And I was pissed at the Jays' (then) owners for ruining my team.

I have the autographs of all members of the 92 and 93 world series teams, most of them on cards.

We moved here in '89 and Jays fever was insane, so we were assimilated into fandom. I still get mocked about the Jays shot glasses in my bar. I still go, but lately it's to bring family that are over visiting so they can experience it.

I agree - afternoon games are better than night games

It sets up a good buzz for the rest of the night

Some of the best memories I have are of afternoon games with friends, and then wandering the streets, stopping into various bars for the rest of the night. One time, completely by accident, we found the coolest little piano bar...went in, various piano players were jamming, taking requests, all the patrons were singing along...

That sounds suspiciously like a Billy Joel video.

Fantasy leagues, there are various formats and rules....you can either be assigned players, like an automated draft, or you can do the entire draft one by one, with each member taking turns drafting (lengthy and time consuming process ) and then your team is assigned points, based on the players you have, and their real life stats.

I was working a mile away from Angels stadium in Anaheim and the hotel where the visiting teams would stay, was right in front of my store. We saw every American League player in that store....all of them.
Most were friendly.

One time, we saw some Detroit Tigers bring a rookie in to the mall dressed up as Sponge Bob.... that was awesome!

It was a great night. I've actually looked for the bar since then, and I don't think it exists anymore. Maybe I imagined it.

Ahhhh. That fanatsy stuff - people get insane over it. They have a pool here in my office, and these dudes get into arguments and shit. Last year, during football, some QB got hurt, and they wouldn't allow some rule exception for the guy that had that QB, and man, he lost his friggin mind - "YOU TOOK MY QUARTERBACK! THEY TOOK MY QUARTERBACK!" It's awesome, I love it. I should join this year.

I knew you'd get it ...esp. in TO, it just lends itself to those baseball/beer afternoons. I hate going to games if we have to drive back for that reason...I don't even mind the nosebleeds there on a sunny day. Those are some of my fave summer memories...except when the sun is behind the tower and interrupts my tanning

Cool.

The Jays hold this luncheon for charity every year at the beginning of the season. All players and coaching staff are there at tables, and you line up to get autographs for an hour or so, and then you go into this ballroom, and they all sit at a head table, and they serve lunch. That's where I met most of them. That, and most of the time we stayed at the Skydome hotel, and especially early in the season, a lot of them are around there, till they find homes or whatever. The only player I've ever seen be a complete asshole is David Wells. The rest were all nice, some of them exceptionally so.
