You guys usually click this feature looking for... well, I'll be honest, I'm not sure what brings you back here. Here's the thing though: when was the last time you saw something - were part of something - legitimately special? I'm not talking about making the playoffs; that's not done and dusted, and besides, 4 or 5 teams do that every year (though not the Yankees this year).
Every time you thought you were out - even my tiny, angry brother, God bless him - they've pulled you back in. For every back-to-back gut punch given up by Perez, there has been an improbable Giambi bomb. Nothing is certain, even with three games left. Enjoy the ride, brace yourselves with hope, don't worry about getting your guts ripped out... again. We're Indians fans; a desperate wish is all we ever have. Here is your week in green.
That is a dead sexy ballpark when it’s packed. Goodness.
I’m sitting in a hotel in Peru with a slow internet connection trying to watch the game streaming from my home DVR when the screen froze during the flashback to Giambi’s previous walkoff. Eventually I realize that it is not current action, and my brief euphoria fades to reality. Then he hits another one. It was like the emotional roller coaster everyone else experienced except compressed in to about a minute. Go Tribe!!!!!
I was at the park for some pretty substantial moments in the 90’s, and those are my best memories as a sports fan. But I am absolutely positive that I’ve never had an experience at Carnegie & Ontario like I did tonight.
I don’t know whether this is a special club, but I do know that this is a special moment.
