ESPN can eat it with Stadium Mustard: The Cleveland Indians are up on The Bloody Sox!
"So it looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue." --Steve McCroskey, Airplane!
And it looks like the wrong week for the "sports leader in television" to side with George Steinbrenner and his gigantic New Yawk payroll. It looks like the wrong week to side with LeBron James and his misguided "love" for the New York Yankees, huh-?
"And all I can do is just pour some tea for two, and speak my point of view. But it's not sane. It's not sane..."
The Cleveland Indians are for real, ESPN! No, the Detroit Tigers did not win the American League Central. No, your beloved New York Yankees did not advance beyond the first round of the playoffs (nor past the terrific Tribe). And, no, the behemoths known only as the Boston Red Sox are not pounding my Cleveland Indians into sublime submission during the MLB post-season playoffs either.
So, ESPN, do you have any other "predictions" to bestow upon the "unwashed masses" here in Cleveland? Maybe the New York Jets will win the Super Bowl while we have at it - nah, I think not.
Matt Damon was quoted in Entertainment Weekly recently stating that he owned a shirt proclaiming: "Jesus Hates The New York Yankees!" Well, sure, don't we all-? But... does he have a shirt saying what the Scientologists think about the Cleveland Indians and their slim chances? Hey, maybe they SHOULD... L. Ron Mother-Hubbards!
