The Blue Jackets allowed Boomer to show up for a Halloween video and it is making 2020 that much better

Let us all be honest with ourselves. 2020 as a year stinks. It stinks a lot. We're going to take our tiny wins where we can. So when I tell you that the Columbus Blue Jackets came out with a video that put a big, earnest smile on my face for the first time in a long time, you should take a peek at the aforementioned video.

We get a peek at the famous, phallic mascot of the Blue Jackets, Boomer. The video is supposed to be about Halloween but given that it is the team's 20th anniversary, you have to wonder if they have any more Boomer-centric plans.

Could we see him at games even without fans? Could we see a throwback to older jerseys during this anniversary year? What about a Boomer-themed jersey? That may be a bit out there but stranger things have happened.

Regardless, it is nice seeing him in the video. Nice things can happen still. Boomer has shown me that.
