As I sit here reading through Blue Jay stats, crossing my fingers for Mark Buhrle and the boys to get out the brooms tonight and SWEEP Tampa…I have to share this with you.
Of all 15 fans that actually go to a Tampa Bay Rays game…check this guy out. The guy on the screen is Jairo Jacinto Mata…watching the game live through his uncle’s computer. Read the full interview Jairo did about this HERE but here’s the best-of from Bleacher Report:
Whose idea was it for you to video chat with your uncle during the game?
It was my idea. I asked him to show me Tropicana Field, since I don’t have a visa to come to the US, and it’s hard for me to imagine an MLB stadium — and I like baseball.
What was the purpose of the chat? Did you get to watch any of the game or just look around the stadium? Does your uncle often chat with you from games?
The chat was to show me a little of the structure of the stadium and the field, and to make me feel like I was in the stands at a Major League game. I’d just seen the stadium from the outside. I love baseball, it’s a Venezuelan passion. I wasn’t able to see any of the plays because the image wasn’t very good.
