A poem for Opening Day in Cleveland

Tribe opening day
A new season commences
Fans already freak

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I get it. My Dad saw the Indians play at League Park, Cleveland Municipal Stadium, and Jacobs Field. My Great Grandfather was an Indians fan, the kind that wore a suit, tie, and straw hat to the ballpark. He probably smoked a cigar, too.

What I am trying to say is that I love the Indians and I understand the emotion. It is a family tradition I an handing down to my boys.

But come on, people. The season is long. April to October is a long, long road.
