Because our friends and family like to enable our unhealthy obsession with the Blue Jays, we've received a Blue Jays gift card this year. (Discounted Frank Thomas bobblehead, here we come!)
We were also excited about receiving the card, since Vernon Wells has popped up on our screen a few dozen times this week, telling us of how we can receive a FREE supercool retro Jays toque when we register our gift card. (And hearing a Texan say "toque" is really worth the price of admission.)
But for the past four days, as we've gone to register our gift card as directed at bluejays.com/giftcard, the system has crapped out on us, thus denying us our toasty headgear and ensuring a miserable winter of head colds and possible pneumonia.
We're not sure what the issue is, but if the Jays want to make sure that we remain healthy and happy through this long offseason bereft of hope and cheer, they can frickin' well get their act together and sort out their computer glitches. Because receiving our free toque in July isn't going to be that helpful.
