The Political Sports Gig – Blue Jays, Trump Clinton Debate

12 Oct

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-11-07-51-pmThanksgiving Weekend in Canada is a time of reflection, and packing up the dreams of the past summer, to welcome Autumn, Jackets, Pants, and attitudes of the end of another year.

The 2016 Thanksgiving weekend was one in Toronto that was particularly ‘crazy’ as summer baseball continued. The Toronto Blue Jays were just on the cusp of winning their spot in a American league final, and at the same time – the crazy US debate of Presidential Nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was going on – at the same time. I’m sure (i know i was) we were all  turning back and forth from Trump to Jays, from Jays to Trump. It was such a nutty night. screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-11-05-41-pm

I was slated at performing just outside Rogers Center at the Fox Fiddle City Centre. It was nuts – people all decked out in their Blue Jays uniforms tense and hopefull.

And at 10:30pm as the Jays won the game, and Toronto and Canada went nuts – the cheering was insane inside the Fox aswell as outside on the street…and at the same time, people were talking about Trump and Clinton (while cheering)..what a weird world we live in.

I’ve never heard so much ‘cheering’ for my songs ever before. It was nuts, but the ‘high’ of that night (Sunday Oct.9th) will live for a couple more weeks in my brain.
