I like that you have a bluejay right after a cardinal. They always seemed like they should be on opposing teams playing each other in something. 🙂
In Major League Baseball, the Toronto Blue Jays and the St. Louis Cardinals are on opposing teams. However, they don’t play against each other very often because they are in different leagues. For example, they met for only three games in the 2017 season and before those games they hadn’t played each other since 2014. By the way, the National League Cardinals won two of the three games they played in April 2017 against the American League Blue Jays including both games of a doubleheader. To be fair, they did have the home field advantage.
It’s not all birds here at Joe Kayaker. There’s also snakes and turtles, deer and rabbits, chipmunks and scenic views, and, yes, even arcane baseball trivia. We serve it all here at Casa Kayaker. 🙂 JK.
Yes, rather like the Mets & Yankees. The Cardinals were always the problem for the Mets when I watched them as a kid — and the Bluejays didn’t trouble me since they were in the other league. Though one ends up rooting for one’s league in the long run — it goes team, division, league. I never crossed over to the other league even when people would say, “Well, the Yankees are from New York; you should root for New York.” Nope. Never. National League all the way. 😉
I grew up a Mets fan but when they traded Tom Seaver, I stopped being a baseball fan in general. He was The Franchise. That was his nickname. It was then that I realized that it’s more business than sport. I still read about baseball from time to time but without the fervor I had when I was a kid. JK.
Oh, don’t get me started! I wrote an angry letter to Frank Cashen about that — and he wrote back too. We used to root for The Mets when they’d play the Cardinals and Tom Seaver was pitching but hope that they wouldn’t score against him and then they’d take him out so the Mets could then win. 😉
Yeah, but if they took Seaver out you might get Tug McGraw. That guy was fun to watch. And the Cards had a great team back then. A whole lot of legendary players. I could go on and on but this blog is supposed to be about nature and photography. JK.
No, Tug wasn’t on the Cardinals then — just a bunch of red birds. 😉 (There — I got you back to the birds. 😉 )
I meant that if Seaver was removed, the Mets might put in Tug. Mr. McGraw was on that wonderful Amazing Mets in 1969. JK.
