autumn colours, blaze

for the fall of opening days

before winter’s white linen spreads out over plains

and stadiums sit still, unopened

we wait,

we’re here,

opened, for spring

but we stand still, for now

nothing can close our days

we are the blaze, the autumn colours

fall and wi...

I sat in the stands on

another September night

in another year with

more white hairs in my beard.

I looked up at the CN Tower,

at the 1973 concrete stain,

surrounded by a blue September sky

and empty blue seats:

The all too familiar baseball scene in Toronto.

I sat in the empt...

On August 15th, 2019, Binghamton, New York, a small city swallowed by trees, was about to witness a great baseball battle. A battle that would result in the first win of the double-A season for the growing legend known as ‘Big Nate’, the samurai, who stabs his victims...

the harsh winter air smothers canadian streets

and the sun reaching down, with its blaze,

is miles away from the lazy summer minor days

and popcorn, peanuts, and cheap american beer

not long ago, i was staring out my window

at the cbc building and the snow-covered sidewalks...

The calm Merrimack River ran its river ways on another summer evening. Patios were busy in the downtown city streets of New Hampshire. The sun was about to set across the sky casting those beautiful colours that Bob Ross liked to mix on his paint board. It was a perfec...

root canal and radiohead

blue latex covers the area surrounding

the dying pulp tree tooth

my life is in a rain delay, tarp out

thom yorke’s voice is on shuffle play, spotify

light, needles, novocaine, and drills

mouth open, it begins

i’m confused about what’s happening

i walk past gate 11 at the rogers centre

and i see an 11-year-old boy sitting on the concrete steps

eating a sandwich before the game with his stepdad

chicken sandwiches that his mom made for them to save money

she got the deli meat from st. joseph’s bakery in st. catharin...

This is my little corner of the internet. My place away from the noise. I'm not here to scream.

Tired tricks are too easy. 

Baseball is weird. And so am I. 

I started this site a couple years ago to rant and rave. I reread some of the old pieces that I wrote. They ar...

Jaws is my favourite movie.

Tom Candiotti had a great knuckleball.

And I'm about to float 60 feet and six inches like a knuckleball.

Maybe I'm coming home. 

It's summer. It's time to drive the asphalt. And see where it leads. 

It's all about the story.

Go check out my fifth mailbag of the season for Blue Jays Nation. I do my best to come up with some sort of answer for every thought-provoking question. In this week’s mailbag, I discuss Kevin Pillar's cape, the Cashman, Melky, and more!

It’s a very serious mailbag and...
