So the last post was admittedly a bit heavy. Let’s focus on something much more pleasant shall we? Tomorrow evening “the boy” and I are headed to my hometown to once again cheer on our Cleveland Indians. In trips past, … Continue reading Brohio

C.C. See Ya!

That large black cloud that you see coming from Cleveland is the official mark of an all-out fire sale in C-Town. Everything Must Go! Lost our Lease! Blah, Blah, Blah. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have seen this movie. C.C. Sabathia is headed to the Brewers for prospects. The 2008 MLB season in Cleveland is officially over. Bring up the kids and lets see what we have for next year. One thing I will point out is that the movie that I have seen before usually included the player in question sticking around until the … Continue reading C.C. See Ya!

That Sound You Hear

That large crashing sound you hear is the Cleveland Indians tanking this season. No sooner had they reached first place (with a .500 record), as of last night they had lost their 5th in a row. As if that wasn’t bad enough, 3 of those losses came to The Reds and two came to the division rival White Sox. Good times. Why is it that the teams that were expected to rip the cover off of the ball this year (I’m looking at you Detroit) have been terrible at the plate. I figured that the winter off would help Hafner … Continue reading That Sound You Hear

Ode to Manny

You gotta love “Manny being Manny” (Ramirez that is). After his 10 minute stance at home plate on Tuesday admiring a homerun that brought his team to within 4 runs, he came out yesterday with the following “bulletin board” material….for the Red Sox??? “If it doesn’t happen, who cares?” Ramirez said Wednesday afternoon. “There’s always next year. It’s not like it’s the end of the world. Well Manny, like many others, I wondered what exactly is “like the end of the world”. Our friends from REM put together a little tune back in the 80’s that might give us some … Continue reading Ode to Manny

Friday Randomness

Oh Lebron! Oh the humanity! How dare you wear a Yankee cap in the Indians crib? How can you ever show your face in Cleveland again after wearing a rival teams hat? This is all tongue in cheek folks. Seriously, where is it written that Lebron has to cheer for the Indians just because he plays for the Cavaliers? The only bad judgment I can see is that he likes the Yankees. It’s not the first time he has worn their gear either. Much ado about nothing. That being said, Hey Lebron, “Scoreboard“! Speaking of the Indians, it’s a big … Continue reading Friday Randomness

Super Sunday!

If I thought this coming Tuesday was going to be good, I had no idea that today would turn out as great as it did too! Talk about a big day! First off the Indians capped off an amazing August and September by clinching the division on Sunday. There is a paver brick outside Jacob’s Field that reads “just once before I die”. Those are my thoughts exactly! October here we come. Now this next part is going to sound strange since I am a CLEVELAND Indians fan, but when it comes to football, it’s all Raiders baby! We are … Continue reading Super Sunday!
