I remember in the fall of 1993, when the Blue Jays last won the World Series, and how the celebrations in the streets went on all night long. Even those of us who weren't die-hard baseball fans were caught up in the thrill of our home team winning the series. We were all proud Torontonians, and we felt the communal aspect of the win. When we watch sports on TV, we can't help but have strong emotions.

Why Everyone Is in Love With Josh Donaldson

Donaldson deserves all the love he's getting. Off the field he's reported to be a mentor to the young guys and, to boot, the social butterfly who keeps the Jays' clubhouse loose and laughing. On the field, he's a leader, all grit and fiery determination.

For the first time since touch-'em-all Joe Carter hit his historic three-run, walk-off homer to lift the locals to their second-straight world championship nearly a quarter-century ago, your Toronto Blue Jays may just (gasp) find themselves in the World Series.

Why Can't We Just Accept Baseball's Steroid Era?

We all -- as fans -- pretended we were outraged and shocked when our favourite players, our icons were named to the lists and the reports and the chapters of Jose Canseco's memoir. In fact, we were pretending when we treated these guys as icons in the first place. They're just men... silly, stupid, bloated, inflated men with egos and fears and faults.

The Week In Review: A-Rod Should Be Free To Dope If He Wants To

Are performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) an unnatural advantage? Sure. But so are many of the extreme training methods and nutritional regimens that are all now a regular part of almost all professional sports, including baseball. If PEDs were permitted, MLB could at least take the significant money it would save on expensive detection schemes, investigations, and mediation (players' unions don't tend to take kindly to 100-game suspensions) and use it instead to educate players about the health dangers of PEDs and the doses at which they are safest.
