    The Greatest Blue Jays Games

    hello jays fans.

    i've become a fan of this team myself over the years. more specifically around 04/05. i've always known of their existance but it's just within the last few years that i've become hardcore. i know we're at a low point in team history but i still cant quite keep myself away from this team. i understand that's it's going to be sometime until there is any real contention, but i do like what aa has done up to this point, considering the circumstances.

    even though i do not enjoy those flashback fridays (waste of resources and effort imo), i still find myself curious about the past of this team. i have spoken to some older fans about games that standout in their minds, to which have been described to me from their perspectives or which i have a vague recollection about but was too young remember or didn't care as much as i do now.

    i have compiled a list of these games in hope to one day be able to see them (or hear them if no video broadcast exists). my question to blue jays country is: is there any games that stand out the most in your minds that you would considered as being "the greatest blue jays games" ever? i would be curious about the delgado years or any of the early years. would anyone know how i would be able to get any of these games for my own veiwing pleasure?

    and yes, this thread was partly inspired by "the greatest halladay games" thread and articles floating around.
