So here we are, leg wrapped up and iced down, thoroughly disappointed in the quality of the painkillers we've received.
But we're not gonna let it get us down.
When we started this blog, we had notions that it would track our building elation as the Blue Jays rose beyond expectations and into a playoff birth. We had fantasies that we would run to our laptop, soaked with champagne sometime in late October, and send out a missive that the dozens of loyal readers, who would then print it out and have it framed and hung on their walls.
Clearly, we were out of our mind.
But our point here is that we never intended for the Tao of Stieb to be about venting and whingeing and moaning, and getting John Gibbons fired to the exclusion of everything else.
So, starting tonight, we're gonna turn over a new leaf. We're gonna accentuate the positive. We're gonna cheer this team on, stop focusing on all of the negatives.
We're gonna make it a happy place.
(However, we reserve the right to grab the wheel and veer completely back into the negative. If we so please.)
