The Indians won again tonight! Aaron Laffey, Lewis’ replacement, nearly gave me a heart attack in the first inning but he got out of a bases loaded one out jam beautifully and it was smooth sailing until the sixth inning from there. Unfortunately for aaron Jensen Lewis was not quite as commanding as he has been recently and gave up two runs that were charged to Laffey taking away his chance for a win on his 24th birthday. But the Indians won on his 24th birthday and Kerry Wood collected his first save as an Indian. It was a great game and I was thrilled to finally see another victory.
I have a song of encouragement for my boys as they head off to New York to face my most favorite team ever (sarcasm definitely intended) the Yankees.
Change- Taylor Swift
And it’s a sad picture, the final blow hits ya,
Somebody else gets what you wanted again
You know its all the same, another time and place,
Repeating history and you’re getting sick of it
But I believe in whatever you do
And I’ll do anything to see it through
It was the night things changed
Can you see it now?
Those walls that they put up to hold us back fell down?
This revolution, throw your hands up,
because we never gave in
We’ll sing hallelujah, we sang hallelujah, hallelujah
The Indians’ season so far has been rather sad and they have watched for years as everyone else seems to get what they want but eventually it will change. They will eventually start winning. I just hope it starts in New York where it does not really seem fair that this team that will definitely be struggling to keep it together in these economic times has to play a team that can spend billions of dollars on players and a new stadium. I am not blaming the Yankees for having money, it just does not seem fair. Bu the Indians can win and I hope they do. I hope they take this win today as a sign that they have the talent to win any game this season. GO TRIBE!
I strongly suggest clicking on the thumbnails and seeing what I named the pictures. Especially if your name is Jordan and if I remember right you think my names for pictures are funny.
