Let's be honest, this is a little bit sad. I... I can't read through the comments sections from before the game. It was like going back and reading every text, note, and email you got from a girl, right on through the one she sent you letting you know it was over. (If your romantic tendencies swing towards men, just insert "boy" where I wrote "girl" and you'll get the idea.)
No; I'm strong. I can do this.
All I want for my birthday is an Indians playoff win!
The Occam's Razor of baseball strategy there. We needed more runs than they got, and instead we had fewer. Still, I feel like it could have all changed so quickly. Maybe if I had found a video feed, or if I had worn my other lucky shirt, or if Turk's girlfriend had been amorous instead of absent...
I know, both in the sense of wielding the power to change a game in the sense that I would invade Turk's privacy like that just because his girlfriend's kiss gave us the Giambi walk-off. Still, that's the edge you have to live on to be a successful fan.
Ah, the "fear" metric. It’s why Jim Rice is in the Hall of Fame!
You're right. I don't want people to start thinking of LGT as "that site that does the Soylent Green feature" and forget about all the great work done by everyone else from Ryan on down. I do have in mind making a big addition as a co-author though.
I hope it means he's fat. The Tigers are fat, and they are really good.
Ouch. That's setting the bar pretty low from my own brother. Thanks a million, Brad. For the final green of the week before the long winter, let's turn to Turk.
Four things, mostly things that have already been said:
1. What a ride. We got so much more than we expected from this team, and I feel dumb for writing them off so many times. The future is bright despite some admittedly large question marks. 2. Thanks to Jay, Ryan, Jason, and everyone else who made this consistently the best sports blog and community on the web. 3. I’m fully behind the Rays from here on. Screw Boston and Detroit, obviously. Screw LA, even. Pittsburgh has won enough in other sports. I’m tired of hearing about Oakland pulling off scrappy seasons in a terrible division. St. Louis and Atlanta have both had more than their fair share. I want Price, Longoria, et al. to get theirs. But not Delmon Young. Let’s make sure he doesn’t get a ring. 4. Screw that clown who threw a drink at DeJesus. Super trashy. Also dumb. Drinks at the stadium are expensive! Doesn’t he have any idea how much less he makes than Chris Perez? You can’t just be throwing away $8 beers!
Absolutely true on all counts, but especially number two. I've always loved the Tribe, but my fandom reached a new level when I found this community. Thanks so much to Jay, Ryan, Jason, talonk, woodsmeister, Adam, Andrew (wherever he is, but always in our hearts), westbrook, Evan, and YDW for keeping great content on the front page every day. It seems weird to say as an Indians fan, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing what the team does this winter, and I know the crew here will keep me posted every step of the way. Here's the last of the rest of your week in green.
The good news is that I watched the game with a NY LGT contingent that included YoDaddyWags. I can confirm that he A) does exist; B) doesn’t disappoint; and C) can wear the hell out of a pair of striped pants and a red vest.
I love Ubaldo. No seriously, seriously, seriously, listen. Listen. Seriously, I’m serious. I mean I love him like seriously. Listen. Did you hear me? Like he is, I just love him. Seriously. I love you too man, but seriously, Ubaldo is seriously. I just love him. I love all you guys too. I’m sorry. I just love him. Seriously.
Considering he spent the first six years of his life wandering through the cavernous Municipal Stadium like some baseball baby Moses, it’s fitting Tito has led this team to the edge of the promised land.
