You Won’t Believe What This Jays Fan Is Doing To Watch Game 5
After suffering through a 22-year MLB playoff drought, Toronto Blue Jays fans couldn’t be more excited about their team’s chances of reaching the 2015 American League Championship Series. Things weren’t looking good early on, as they were trailing the Texas Rangers 2-0 after the first two games of the ALDS. But after winning Games 3 and 4 in Texas, both teams have returned to Toronto for a decisive Game 5 at the Rogers Centre.
With gametime less than 30 minutes away, many Torontonians are doing whatever they can to get inside the stadium or in front of a television to take in the biggest baseball game that the city has hosted in over two decades. Some of those citizens are even taking some rather extreme, and seemingly unnecessary, measures, like this guy:

According to Toronto Police Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu, the man fled the scene before the cops arrived, and it’s probably a good thing. As Sidhu later noted, “The funniest part is when you’re arrested there are no televisions in the holding station.”
Hat Tip to Guzz for the find.
