Former Toronto Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell told a story once about how, during a losing streak, he was making his way down to the Air Canada Centre and was accosted by a squeegee guy.

As the story goes, the guy was absolutely thrilled to inform Mitchell that he was a Maple Leafs fan, and not a fan of the “lousy” Raptors. Mitchell said he was proud of himself for letting it slide, adding that in his younger days, he probably would have gotten out of the car and gone fist city with the dude. Sitting in his office outside the home team dugout at the Rogers Centre prior to Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons had a good laugh when told the Mitchell anecdote.

“Maybe that’s what I need,” the Jays manager said, when asked if any angry fans have approached him to talk about The Jays’ 19-27 start.
