Wow! I was looking over the Cleveland Indians roster here on opening day at “Progressive Field,” and I noticed something:
None of the players are older than me!!! This makes me a grouchy old veteran fan, I guess.
The only one who even comes close is:
Birthplace: Yamanashi, Japan
Height: 6′ 0″ Weight: 195
College: Nippon Sport Science
MLB Debut: 04/02/2008
I’m older by about three months.
I grew up watching this team, through the dread of the ’80s failures of course.
Whew, we sure had some zeroes on the roster back then.
Well, the Cavs blew it. Boston marches on. We won’t have to hear from them in a while. My favorite aspect of yesterday’s game was Joe Tate and his commentary. The Tribe also blew it, swept in the Queen City by the Reds. Inter-league games are strange. Commentary from the “Voice of the Cleveland Indians” TOM HAMILTON was also enjoyable. During Sunday’s game he described the slack-jawed chant of Reds fans as ” Reds fans showing their intelligence.” Subtle but nasty!
Anyways, the Cavs are done for now. It is time to watch the Indians, hoping they “get it together” as it were.
I will be attending May 23rd’s game at “Progressive Field” when they take on the Texas Rangers.
Untill then, I will be enjoying the nightmare that is quiting smoking.
By the gods!!!!!!!!!! Make the pain go away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
