JFTC BRINGS YOU ‘A WORD FROM GIBBY’, A LIGHTHEARTED PRESENTATION OF RECENT COMMENTS FROM TORONTO BLUE JAYS’ MANAGER, JOHN GIBBONS ON THE NEED FOR A WIN STREAK
The Toronto Blue Jays manager recently appeared on Power Alley with Mike Ferrin, Jim Duquette, and Jim Bowden on MLB Network Radio. We had some fun with some of the things he had to say about the way that baseball works when it comes to win streaks. They tend to happen to every team and after 3 months of disappointment, the Blue Jays are still waiting for theirs.
It is not too difficult to tell that this was inspired by the SNL greatness of Jack Handy. What those had was an ability to make us laugh and think at the same time.
John Gibbons is similar in that he is able to entertain us with his personality, but often provides us opportunity to pause and think about a good number of things. After the announcement of his contract extension, we brought you The Best of Gibby, which was a tribute to the gems he’s given us over the years
Whether you like him, or not, you can’t deny the pure comedic gold in just about everything Gibby says. It is for that reason, we will continue these short vignette’s. You can catch these, our pregame shows and more video content on our YouTube channel!
