The Blue Jays Are In A Playoff Race, But Their Fans Would Rather Smash At The Rogers Centre Than Watch The Game

Another day, another couple caught doing the nasty at a baseball game. This time the couple caught was in Canada, at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-4 in 11 innings on Monday night. At 69-58 they are in the hunt for a wild-card berth, but apparently that wasn’t enough to keep the interest of this couple.

Law enforcement told both TMZ and blogTO that there was no information on the incident.

Censored video posted by Blog TO shows a woman straddling a man in the top row of the 500s level … and the outlet claims everything is on display in the unedited version.

 

Another clip shows the couple being escorted away from the area … and they were most likely escorted out of the stadium. The top of the 500 section where this couple got down with the get down, is all the way at the top of the stadium and they were surrounded by a sea of empty rows. But that’s no excuse for public smashing.

This also isn’t the first time a couple was caught engaging in sexual acts at an MLB park this season. Police in Oakland are investigating fans who allegedly engaged in a sex act during an Athletics-Mariners game at RingCentral Coliseum.

Don’t be surprised if we see an uptick in these kinds of incidents. Once people start realizing they can gain notoriety for this type of behavior and the punishment is minimal if anything, some will opt to engage in sexual activity in public stadiums.

A week ago, a couple in Ohio were arrested for having sex on a ferris wheel. The deed was witnessed by minors. They could face up to 180 days in jail.

Meanwhile the Blue Jays control their own destiny as the regular season winds down. Continue winning at an above average rate and you’ll be in the playoffs. They are three games up on the Baltimore Orioles for the third wild-card spot and one game back of Tampa for the first wild-card spot.

With 19 games in September against both clubs, the Blue Jays can cement their playoff appearance with enough wins.

“Look at the standings and understand that every game is important,” Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said of how to get the best out of his team in the stretch drive. “Three hours out of your day needs to be completely focused on trying to win. That’s the goal moving forward.”

The Blue Jays end the regular season with a three-game series against the Orioles. That series may very well decide the wild-card selections.
