Opening Day

Happy Opening Day! I realize that I may have all of zero Cleveland Indians fans reading this blog. We'll have to work on that. Not saying I need new readers -- the old ones can simply become new fans.














And how about that! First place already.
Cleveland Indians 10
Chicago White Sox 8
















Go Tribe!

(Note: It is entirely possible that the recent surfacing of a Red Sox fan among my readers was a significant reason for this post.)

I have no doubt that you would/could never completely spurn the Indians. Once a fan always a fan. But a capital "F" Fan? Here is the test:

Who were you rooting for last October?

(And "both teams" doesn't qualify.)

Oh, a duel between old friends... how intriguing!

Wise words, Megan.

Sorry, Jason, I'm sort of your average "zero Cleveland Indians fan". I guess you'll have to keep working on me. At least you can be assured that my allegiance is not vested in any other team.

***Note***
I finally have my official blogger identity officially finalized.

Megan,

After much prolonged thought about your (ahem) malady, I have settled on two responses. The first thought is one of consolation (for me); the second is a suggested remedy (for you).

1) At least (surely, SURELY) you are no longer a Yankees fan.

2) You shall simply have to leave Rome next October for a return visit to Ohio.

Stephen,

Nice profile. I had to laugh at your answer to the Blogger Random Question. First because I remember you joking in the past about spoonerisms in general and that one in particular; second, because your answer actually fits (which is really rather unsettling).

"At least you can be assured that my allegiance is not vested in any other team."
--True, but you can do better.

Ok Jason... You got me there, The Yankees are indeed the essence of evil. I gave into great weakness as child when I showed them any loyalty (However small it was). Time spent in Red Sox Nation has brought me to my senses. And we can all thank God for that.

But, I think you should know that occasionally when someone is surprised by my knowledge of baseball or the size of my baseball card collection (yes I still have it), I tell them of the 6 year old boy who lived across the street from me, took me under his wing (though I was about a foot taller than him at the time) and taught me everything he knew about baseball. He even gave me my first Red Sox baseball card. (And don't try to deny it.)

And so, with that said... I blame you for it all. Thanks :-)
