For the record, I have found a proxy who is old and fakes injuries to bypass the lines.
Everybody loves free shit.
And make no mistake about it, the Blue Jays love giving you free shit as long as you’re dumb enough to line up hours before first pitch and spend triple the cost of said free item on food and beverage.
The house always wins.

On the plus side, you’ve got a closet full of swag; on the negative side, you’ve paid a premium in both dollars and time to watch our boys play at woeful .400 clip (which is slightly better than the Giants, who are currently 27 games out of first place).
There's no real point to this post except it may help explain where that annoying, mouth-breathing, let’s-tear-the-whole-thing-
down-and-rebuild-it-right- after-I-call-Jays-talk bandwagon fan, who always corners you at work on Monday morning and starts the conversation with “Sweet Jesus, the Jays fucking blow," is coming from.
