1. That Seventh Inning. Blue Jays Musings wrote that “you will remember where you were when the game happened.” An unforgettable 53-minute seventh inning — recapped very nicely by The Armchair All-Americans — propelled the Blue Jays to the ALCS.

As Cozy Comfy Home discusses Blue Jays Fever spreading across Canada, The Pete Sports Beat asks if the interruption caused by fans at Rogers Centre played a role in the outcome.
