DUNEDIN, Fla. — Mascots are twice as funny once they leave the context of the ballpark and enter the home realm of the fans. D-JAY the Blue Jay, a mascot of the Toronto Blue Jays organization for the minor-league affiliate here, recently escaped from Florida Auto Exchange Stadium to see what was up on the waterfront. He found a picnic in a public park that was celebrating Tampa Bay's community drinking water contest.

As if someone could make this up.

Time to head back to the ballpark, D-JAY. Hope you enjoyed your picnic, along with your short walk on a long pier.
