"Last weekend… a guest of a guest visited our patio for a quiet drink. And a few quiet drinks were exactly what he had!
Had this young man had drinks in any of the local pubs or clubs in the entertainment district, he might have attracted a lot of unwanted attention. He’s a local athlete; he’s the first baseman with the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team who just recently signed a four-year contract worth $24,000,000!
Since most our our guests are foreigners, and hence know little of the game of baseball, Lyle Overbay went largely unnoticed among those enjoying a summer evening on our patio. That’s just the way he likes it!
So Lyle is among the most famous guest to grace our hostel although he went largely unrecognized by the Soccer, Rugby and Cricket fans who make up the majority of our residents.
As well as being among the most famous guests, he’s definitely the wealthiest!”

A guest of a guest, hey? Well played, Lyle, well played.
