Blue Jays Adventure 2

From the person who brought us Gregg Zaun as a drunken mini-boss, we have the (unpatched) 2014 Blue Jays adventure!

About a year ago I uploaded an 8 bit video game adventure surrounding the 2013 Toronto Blue Jays.
Needless to say, things didn’t work out as the game predicted.
I took a stab at predicting the 2014 season, but for some reason I can’t get it to work correctly.

Word has it the Blue Jays stayed away from free agent acquisitions this offseason because they stored their money in Mt. Gox.

The original video actually ended up being pretty damn accurate. Reyes got hurt early, Lind couldn't hit lefties, Rasmus missed half the season, Melky was of no help, and there was no pitching to be seen.

I would've linked to it in the intro, but I didn't want to break the formatting. I watched it after I watched this one, and I laughed because I'd forgotten about Reyes getting hurt. John Farrell's depiction as the boss of the 2013 season was also accurate.

As this seems like the place to ask....the Jays game tomorrow is apparently on MLB Network, is that available in Canada? Or more specifically, available for Bell customers?

AFAICT from reading forum discussions / twitter, the MLB Network is only on Rogers, not Bell.

It's their fault for being so stupid, everyone knows Dogecoin is the wave of the future. So crypto, much value.

MLB Extra Innings is available to Canada, but Jays games are blacked out, unless you mask your location.

I think I claim to be in Alaska.

Bummer, oh well. Looks like it will be old fashioned radio baseball until tomorrow!

If it's any consolation, today's game and all future MLB Network broadcasts of Blue Jays spring training games are currently listed as "blackout in progress". I'm not sure if it's hilarious or sad that a 1 AM showing of an otherwise untelevised Blue Jays vs the Twins Split Squad might actually be subject to MLB's blackout rules.

Apparently the guide was wrong, the game's actually on TV.
