The Cleveland Indians or the Chicago Cubs?
I was born and raised in Columbus, OH. I am a fan of many teams from my home state, around the country and all around the world for various sports for various reasons. I have written about the Indians and the Cubs qualifying for the World Series through a pop-culture/movie lens throughout the past few days and the fact that rises above all this jubilant chaos occurring in Major League Baseball is that we’re currently living in a Bizarro World. The Cubs are in the World Series for the first time in seven decades and the Indians could potentially win their second professional sports championship in the same calendar year, leading to a city-wide identity crisis.
What is happening right now?
The one thing I do know is that I will be cheering for…
Tom Hanks may have said it best last night.
Go Cleveland Indians!
If Tom Hanks is not shown on national television sitting at a World Series game in Progressive Field (definitely a catchier name) with a typewriter, while wearing an Indians hat and jersey or t-shirt, then we’ve officially entered a new dimension of the Bizarro World. Indians organization: The “Wild Thing”/Charlie Sheen and Tom Hanks are handing you pop-culture TV gold on a platter…take it and show it to everyone!
Otherwise, that’s what those in the baseball biz call a
strikeout K – (open parenthesis, SIT DOWN…backspace, backspace, backspace, Shift 8, ”’, close parenthesis).
