In an ongoing attempt by many clubs to make an MLB game look affordable occasionally (and get people into the park to sell full-price concessions to), the Toronto Blue Jays offered four dates this year with CDN$2 tickets in certain upper deck sections.
(Did she find Ferris or not?)
However, in an ongoing theme for Toronto fans, Blue Jays president Paul Godfrey may ditch the pretense next season after Tuesday night’s first attempt at concession upsells went too well, especially for the beer vendor.
Brawls broke out all across the truly cheap seats, causing over 100 ejections from Rogers Centre. (Of course, the same number were tossed Opening Day.) Not to mention the lovely young lady above who entertained the Opening Day crowd and two more shirtless visitors to the field (one of each gender) Tuesday.
Paul “Joykill” Godfrey sighed deeply and then wagged his finger at Toronto’s shirt shortage:
“It’s really unfortunate some fans feel like it’s a night club here. The few can always ruin it for the majority.”
Hell, that probably would make Rogers Centre the best nightclub in Toronto on a Tuesday night.
Still, Godfrey has canceled alcohol sales for the remaining three promotional nights in the affected areas and will pat down everyone headed up there for hard liquor, Camelbaks, and any fun smuggled into the game. Problem solved! Finger wagged, toys taken away, sent to room with expensive hot dog.
Come on, Paul. It’s not like the chicken streakers have been making their way down from the upper deck. Opening Day certainly didn’t have reduced prices on any item. Time to face facts: Toronto has started developing the rowdiest, drunkest, and least-clothed fan base for all sports teams.
Circle the date: May 27th. Toronto fans invade Oakland Coliseum. We stand on guard for thee, indeed.
