Take Me Out to the Ball Game: Plus Size Sporty Style

I hope all my fellow Canadians had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I hope that you all had the chance to give thanks, and reflect on what it a privilege it is to be Canadian.  Fittingly, his year, October 10th, was also Indigenous Peoples' Day; a day of counter-celebration of Columbus Day. I also hope you all remember that we are living on stolen land.

On a lighter note, most Canadians I know spent at least some of their weekend watching baseball, myself included. The Toronto Blue Jays (my city!) won the MLB Wild Card spot, advancing them to the American League Division Series. The 3rd game in a series of 5 was swept by The Blue Jays, advancing them to the American League Championship Series, against The Cleveland Indians (*eye roll* - ironic appropriation). As Canada's only current MLB Baseball team, we have a lot of weight on our shoulders to achieve. We are the underdogs, but we are determined and we are fighters. I like to think that I am also this way.

My paternal Grandfather (Papa), was the biggest Toronto Blue Jays fan, ever. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2013, and my Nana, a year and a half later. After he passed, my Nana and I went through his closet. I ended up leaving with a University of Toronto (Papa & my alma matter!) Pullover and a Vintage Toronto Blue Jays Bomber from the 1980s. Let me just say, this man is where my tall, broad and strong genes came from. We were practically the same size (except he was a bit taller), and everything fit! I figured, why not wear these items, rather than have them sit in my closet?

My love for baseball certainly grew through our bonding time. We would sit in the living room or basement and watch the games together, while sipping on Diet Coke.  It certainly helped that I played ball myself, as the rules in MLB then become easy to pick up. I cherished this time more than anything, and I miss him so much each day. I know he is with me always, especially during The Blue Jays Post Season.
