Cleveland Indians Motivational Posters

It may be a bit on the hack side, but you can’t help the thoughts that enter your brain.  This morning as I was swimming, I thought about the parodied motivational posters that they do at and for whatever reason, I started thinking of Cleveland Indians players.  So, I got started, asked the rest of the WFNY team for some help and these are what we came up with.  Scott and DP collaborated beautifully on the Platoon one, so make sure you give them “attaboys” for that one.

Remember.  We kid the Indians because we love them and hope to love them even more.

    Pronk’s is one of the best above, but I still think the donkey portion of his name needs to be worked in somehow.

    something like: if your project starts with a donkey, then don’t be surprised when you get kicked in the nuts.

    Reep, the links caught it in our spam filter – you’re all good now.

    @#5 mgbode – well said. I would have also accepted, “If your project starts with giving a lot of money to a donkey, don’t be surprised when you look like an ass.” You were my inspiration, I just wordsmith-ed a bit.

    Low-hanging fruit is always the easiest to get.

  • OmegaKing

    I think I’m in love the the Peralta one – like, I might propose to it.

  • Garry Owen

    Okay, one more, then I have to get back to “work.”

    This is fun.

    @vagabond – since these are demotivational posters, can I be your uninspiration?

    (and yes, your wordplay was better. well done on the wordsmith)


    @17…..Insanity is how many fans are actually in the stands in that picture…..that must have taken forever to photoshop them all in!

    My take as a season ticket holder, especially since I’m the one in the photo (and I’ve got the scar to prove it).
