TORONTO – Conservative Leader Stephen Harper’s appearance at the Toronto Blue Jays game Monday night may have messed with the team’s mojo, according to some social media users.

Harper was in attendance for the 4-2 loss against the Cleveland Indians as the Conservative leader campaigned in the city.

Prior to the game, Harper was greeted by Blue Jays great Roberto Alomar and took in batting practice.

Harper stuck around for a few innings of the game too.

The Jays were looking to get their 22nd win in August, and to capitalize on the team’s 1.5-game lead in the American League East.

It appears Harper may have messed with the team’s mojo and Blue Jays fans on social media don’t want Harper to attend Tuesday night’s game.
