Or sitting outside in the beautiful Cleveland weather this afternoon watching on our porches, assuming we had a porch and the associated technology to support sports watching on it.
Think if the Tribe was 0-8, or 1-7, or even 2-6, it would be a depressing decision for people round herr to have to make; assuming they don’t watch or play golf like I don’t, my bad on that I blame my Dad though.
Regardless, if the Masters don’t do it for you and you’re looking to get in a quality root in this afternoon, there’s two other options.
The NBA Eastern Conference game of the year between the Heat and the Celtics where they’ll battle for the second seed in the playoffs / or / Wahoo Baseball versus TheGrind Time Mariners as Manny Acta and fellas go for their second straight series sweep.
I gotta imagine just about everybody in Cleveland is picking the latter, and glad to do so.
It’s nowhere near that depressing moment I referenced earlier either due to the Tribes torrid start, and today could prove as microcosim of what’s possible this summer too.
With speculation that everybody will be burning clothing in Cleveland all NBA playoffs long running rampant prior to the Tribes recent tear - and people going so far as concocting Hating party schemes as moronic methods of capitalizing on such supposed negativity - what if the Indians play so well that nobody cares at all what the Heat are doing?
What if they’re in first place in late May, early June? It’s possible, and today may just prove to be the first of many examples of what the Indians can do here in the coming months.
Instead of rooting for LeBron to miss a last second shot, or the Celtics to do him like they did last postseason, we can just turn the channel and root for a team he doesn’t even like.
Up the dial today, over in Seattle, Carlos Santana, Chris Perez, and Asdrubal Cabrera are continuing their reign of dominance over Major League Baseball all the while LeBron and company will be hiking up jumpshots against the Celtics.
So thank Bob Dibiasio and crew for putting all that together for you. Go Tribe today.
Technically, both games are not on at the same time exactly. If you were wondering, the Celtics tip off down in Miami at 3:30, and first pitch is scheduled for 4:10 out in Seattle.
Additionally for full disclosure, I will be watching a lot of the Heat / Celtics game today but it’s just because I watch a heaping ton of NBA Basketball.
I’m not rooting for anybody to lose either, just the Celtics to win…in this case.
MAGIC NUMBER UPDATE: What once was 155 is now 154 peoples. Here’s hoping it’s 153 by nightfall.
