Call them the Broom Jays
Two teams take turns trying to score and trying to prevent the other team from scoring. It's known for its combination of strategy and skill. The Toronto Blue Jays were doing it on Friday. What sport am I talking about? Curling, of course.
The Blue Jays are in the midst of their Winter Tour, in which they're bringing members of their team around the country and sampling all the culture Canada has to offer along the way. Friday found them in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where Colby Rasmus, Anthony Gose and mascot Ace, among others, picked up brooms and hit the ice with the Granite Curling Club.
