Winter’s behind us, there’s a fresh spring scent in the air, and daylight stretches into the early hours of the evening. Just as importantly, baseball is on its way back to our ball parks and home screens. Even if you’re not a die-hard Blue Jays fan, it was hard not to get caught up in the spectacular season they had last year. It seemed like the whole country was cheering them on, glued to their TVs.
Who can forget the unbelievable comeback in Game 5 of the ALDS Series? Or Josh Donaldson’s flying leap into the stands for a truly amazing catch? This year’s dugout seems to have winner written all over it too.
Baseball for so many Canadians is the heart of the summer. We don’t call the Blue Jays the “Boys of Summer” for nothing! And nothing goes better with a classic game of baseball than a classic slice of pizza. Whether it’s the anticipatory first inning, or the nail-biting 9th, a warm slice of Pizza Nova’s famous Nonna’s Favourite™ pizza, topped with herbed olive oil, Mozzarella, chunks of plum tomatoes, basil, parmigiano, and baked until well done, makes watching the game all the more enjoyable. Pizza is as fantastic for an afternoon game on the weekend as it is for that evening game mid-week.
The varied line-up at Pizza Nova means never having to repeat a choice and that your enthusiasm will never wane. So let’s hold up our slices to cheer on our AL East Champions and celebrate the season. Go Jays Go!
