Cow and Pickle Restaurant

Monday, April 26th, 2010

These are some photos from last year. This is the Cow and Pickle Restaurant located at the corner of Parliament St. and Dundas St.

The restaurant is based on a fast food theme.

Great food, fast service, and for some reason, they have a picture of a giant pickle and a cow holding hands painted on their wall.

These were taken with my cell phone so the quality is not the best.

Homeless Entertainer With Musical Spoons

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

This is a photo from Thursday April 15, 2010. This Homeless Entertainer is playing the musical spoons.

This is a video from Tuesday April 20, 2010. He still looks the same but has a new sign.

If you see him stop, listen and give him a few cents. At least he is providing entertainment. He is not one of these in your face homeless creatures or one of the fake homeless that sits in the streets of toronto.

These were taken with my new camera.

Vernon Wells homers, Blue Jays beat Royals 4-3

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

These are some photos from the Kansas City baseball game on Tuesday April 20, 2010. This is the Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre.

As you can see in this picture still low attendance.

John Buck was playing against his old team.

It was the 737th RBI for Vernon Wells.

Blue Jays beat Royals 4-3.

This video shows an amazing double play from Kansas. Toronto has the bases loaded with 1 out. After the ball is hit they throw to home plate and get the force play then on to first and get the batter out.

These were taken with my new camera.

Alien creation in Toronto’s Distillery District

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

This is a photo from last year. This is an Alien creation in Toronto’s Distillery District.

For three years, this creature named Koilos will stand silently as pedestrians walk through the popular tourist spot.
The 14-foot-tall Koilos could be out of a Del Toro film: a creature in the crouching position has a head fringed with flames, giving the impression of a monster eager to pounce. It was made with 2,000 pounds of steel.

This was taken with my cell phone so the quality is not the best.

Chicago White Sox game in Toronto April 15

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

These are some photos from the Chicago White Sox game April 15, 2010. This is the Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre.

One night after a stadium-low crowd of 10,610 watched an 11-1 loss, attendance rose slightly for the series finale.

If you happened to turn on a Major League Baseball game Thursday, you probably noticed every player, manager, and umpire was wearing the number “42.”

Major League Baseball does this every April 15 to commemorate Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in the league. On April 15, 1947, Robinson took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers as the first African-American player to ever play in the MLB.

Although it can make things a little confusing at times when watching the games, (”Wait, which No. 42 is this batting right now?) I still really like that baseball does this.

In this photo you can see that in the 500 level, 200 level and even the 100 level behind home plate is not very filled with people.

Starter Dana Eveland followed up a strong first start with six innings of three-hit baseball to give Toronto a 7-3 win and a split of their four-game series with the Chicago White Sox.

The announced crowd of 10,744 marked a slight improvement over Wednesday’s Rogers Centre record-low mark.

Here is a video of Alex Rios striking out.
