Taking VIA Rail to Montreal to greet your Toronto Blue Jays as they return to Canada this weekend for the first time this year?

Need some reading material for the ride?

Or are you pining for your old team the Montreal Expos, Canada’s first team?

Well, we have a couple of suggestions.

Danny Gallagher grew up in Douglas, Ont., listening to the Hall of Fame broadcasters Dave Van Horne and Duke Snider.

Bill Young graduated McGill University in 1961 and eight years later fell in love with the expansionist Expos.

Jonah Keri grew up in Ville St-Laurent, a 25-minute drive (23 Metro stops) from the corner of Pie IX and Pierre de Coubertin where Olympic Stadium, the previous home of the Montreal Expos sat without ball since 2004 until the New York Mets and the Blue Jays play there Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
