Damn another goodbye. This is not fun and there may be so much more to come. But Cecil is a little different. Seeing him go means saying goodbye to a Baby Blue Bird.
He was so much part of what made 2015 so fun. When he came out it was guaranteed that no more runs would be scored. And man were we spoiled by that feeling. Losing him in the ALDS just showed us how important he was. I remember actually crying during his press confress announcing that he was for the rest of the postseason and then super delighted on the news that he could have returned if the Jays made the World Series.
He struggled this year and took a lot of crap for it. But he sure made all those who heckled and boo him eat their words in the second half of the season.
Thanks you Cecil. It’ll hurt seeing in you in anything but Blue Jays’ blue but I’m beyond happy that you got what was justly due to you.
And because I’m me, obviously it’s time to roll out some of my favourite Cecil GIFs:
