Hastily Made Cleveland Indians Ballpark Tourism Post

After Camden Yards, the second ballpark to really usher in the new era of baseball stadiums was Jacobs Field in Cleveland. The move away from cookie-cutter to retropark began in Baltimore, but Cleveland wasn’t very far behind. And I finally made the trek to Cleveland in July to see “the Jake” or “Progressive Field” as they now call it. But the trip wasn’t as much about the game, or Alex Rodriguez’s quest for 600* on that night, it was much more about the “social deck,” in left field.

And this game just also happened to be the same exact one in which a fan wore a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey to the game, acted like a douche to egg on the crowd, and got kicked out after causing a riot. So that was a story in itself.

Like my friend Peter Pattakos of Cleveland Frowns said “here, it’s not about this (pointing outward), it’s about this (points inward)” It’s true, in Cleveland it’s not about where you go, but who you’re with that matters.

Virginia Earthquake, Hurricane Irene, but No Lake Erie Tsunami: Browns are Safe

Despite what you have heard, there is no tsunami expected for Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake Huron, or Georgian Bay. The Lake Erie tsunami warning rumor got a lot of traction on Twitter today, but luckily for the city of Cleveland, and the Browns, whose home is located right on the lake shore, it’s not a legitimate concern.

Despite all the sick jokes and juvenile tweets you’ve heard on Twitter, Colt McCoy’s home stadium is safe from flood and raging waters.

Most Annoying, Disgusting Cleveland Indians Fan in the World (Video)

cleveland-indians

This is someone’s mom. That’s a frightening fact. Ideally, you’d want the prime specimens of the gene pool reproducing; not the skimming from it.

You can see this Cleveland Indians fan’s daughter hiding her face in shame as the MILTPITF (mom I’d like to punch in the face) tries to rile up the crowd. At least this fan has her looks (uhm ok maybe not) to fall back on. Well, at least her looks match her personality, intelligence, class and self-awareness

Cleveland Indian Shin-Soo Choo’s on-field problems, DUI solved with a hug.

Indian's Shin-Soo Choo

Quick question: Before the season started, who had the Cleveland Indians atop the A.L. Central, leading the league in run differential and seemingly trading back and forth daily with the Philadelphia Phillies for the best record in baseball by mid-May?  Yeah, I didn’t think so.  Just about everything has been clicking for the Tribe as of late, but amidst the fanfare and joy that only the best home start since 1901 can bring, it seems there is one Indian who has yet to join the party:  Shin-Soo Choo.
