one out of eleven

Thursday night, Kristy & I headed downtown hoping to see the Cleveland Indians snap their 10-game losing streak, their longest in 29 years. It didn’t look good when Aaron Laffey gave up an early 2-run homer, but the Indians battled back and ended up spanking the 1st-place Devil Rays, 13-2. The weather was perfect, and the crowd, though sparse, was surprisingly enthusiastic given the Tribe’s current last place standing, which I was glad to see. We have tickets to the game tonight, but currently the weather forecast isn’t looking so great. Which sucks because tonight is supposed to be their big Rock n’ Blast fireworks show, which I am particularly looking forward to since I missed seeing any fireworks last weekend.
Speaking of baseball, I’ve seen this video of a minor league manager video going nuts way too much over the past few days. It reminded me of my favorite manager meltdown of all-time, Phil Wellman of the Mississippi Braves AA team.
