The thing about finding a unicorn is you wouldn’t even enjoy it until you believed in it, and it would take a long time before you believed in it.

You would keep turning around, just to make sure it was still there and you could still see it. You wouldn’t expect it to be there. You might not even want it to be there.

'Wild Thing' let loose with Joe Carter in Toronto
The Toronto Blue Jays have been a little light in catching at the major league level. With J.P.
