Toronto Star: Dear Blue Jays, we are gathered here ...

mikesapoz invites us to a…“Great story—Halladay and Burnett organized the “wedding” of Aaron Hill and Russ Adams.”

Adams and Hill knew revenge was in the air when a plane circled the field during yesterday morning’s stretch towing a sign that read: “Aaron, will you marry me? I love you. Russ.”

“We thought the fly-by was it,” said Adams…But no.

On reaching the clubhouse, Adams and Hill walked in on a catered affair. In the parking lot, Hill’s SUV was festooned with blue and white balloons and signs, some of which can even be printed here. The best: “Watch us turn two later tonight.”

“They didn’t miss anything,” said Adams, wedding cake still in his hair. “They had a deejay, a freakin’ videographer or whatever you call it, a fondue pot, gifts ... well, gag gifts.

That's hilarious. I liked this line:

He and Adams will make roughly $700,000 (all figures U.S.) this season; Halladay and Burnett are in line for a combined $120 million over the next five years.

Meh...take it to the "players aren't 'phobes" thread.

Seriously, it's pretty funny on the surface.

If they start winning it will because they have such great chemistry, if they start losing it'll be because they didn't concentrate on Baseball enough in ST.

But it was pretty funny ;)

I tell you, this got a lot of play in the T.

Halladay did wear a bridal dress in a Jays commercial a couple years ago. Maybe he has a thing for weddings.

I assume Orlando Hudson wasn't invited. Or are they still "friends"?
