From The Branches: Blue Jays, democracy... maybe some Leafs?

New, comments

Good post-election morning! Get your links!

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Well, what a night that was last night, eh? The Blue Jays faced off against the Kansas City Royals in Game 3 of the ALCS, and Canada went to the polls to elect a government. Was the outcome of that game not crazy? That team in blue really deserved the win. And how about that election? I'm sure you're all happy or sad that your party of choice won or lost. I'd love to discuss the outcome of both events that I totally know because I definitely didn't write this blurb on Monday afternoon.

Now; to your links.
