The Blue Jays celebrated clinching a playoff berth on the final day of the season Sunday with a champagne-soaked celebration in the visitors' locker room at Fenway Park:
On Tuesday, two days later, Toronto beat Baltimore in the Wild Card Game to advance to the American League Division Series--and then went through the entire ordeal again:
New t-shirts. Probably new goggles as well. And a whole bunch more champagne.
I get it the first time--you're celebrating the success of a 162-game season. But seriously, what's different about your mindset 48 hours later? "Woo-hoo! We haven't been eliminated from the playoffs since we qualified two days ago! Let's get nuts!" I have to think some of the players must have been thinking "Seriously? Are we actually going to do this again? Do I really have to put on all that stupid crap and get soaked in booze for the second time in three days?"
This reminds me of that episode of How I Met Your Mother where Ted throws a party so he can hang out with Robin, but when she doesn't show up he hosts one the next night too, then the night after that also:
The postseason continues for the Blue Jays in Texas at 4:30 pm Thursday. Hopefully they can still play after two days of partying.
