just one small request

Since today is my birthday, I think I have the right to make a request. I would like to ask the Cleveland Indians to fulfill this request, and I don’t think it’s too much to ask. I just want them to win tonight’s game against Boston to earn a spot in the World Series. I feel good about their chances to win the series, but it would be really nice to do it tonight. I think I heard that they haven’t clinched a playoff series at home in like 87 years, so it would be nice to have a party here for once. And it would make it a birthday to remember for sure.
I do have one other small request, that I’d like to be filled if they have the chance. That would be to stick a fastball in the ribs of Manny Ramirez. The Indians were for the most part dismissive of his antics from Tuesday night, when after hitting a home run, he stood and watched the ball until it landed before flicking his bat, raising his arms and proceeding to casually stroll around the bases and congratulate himself like he had just hit the game winner in game 7 of the World Series, seemingly ignorant of (or unable to comprehend) the fact that his team was still down by 4 runs. Like Indians radio announcer Mike Hegan said right after he did that, if someone had done that back when he was playing, next time up they’d be picking themselves up out of the dirt. I’m sick of everyone saying “it’s just Manny being Manny”. No one should be excused for continually being a moron.
