Go Astros

Still having a hard time getting over last night’s sweep. Not sure why but this season’s postseason slump hurts worse than previous years. Maybe it’s cause no one that has a job got to watch any of the games? Talk about a terrible schedule. Oh well… I’m an Astros fan the rest of the way. 

Here's To The Indians

Still love me some Tribe… and now it’s officially Browns and Cavs season in the CLE.

We’re Underway – It’s Tribe Time!!!

With their 7-4 victory over the Tigers on Monday night, the Indians clinched the 2016 AL Central title and they’re back in the playoffs! This is the first time since the 2013 season the Tribe has been to the post season and the first time since 2007 that they’ve won the division.

I ran across this on Facebook this morning when Carrie Nagy Swain added it as her cover photo.

Indians playoff tickets went on sale the other day and sold out within an hour. Progressive Field should be rocking!

The Finals Are Back

The Cavs are back home in the NBA Finals (albeit down 0-2) to Golden State. Tonight they look to get back into the series with a victory on their home court. This photo was posted last year on Instagram by officialclevelandsports when they said, “The calm before the storm! Let’s be loud and proud tonight! Let’s show the world what Cleveland is really about #IBelieve #ClevelandAgainstTheWorld”

Cavs Historic Night In Game 2

The Cleveland Cavaliers broke the NBA record for 3-pointers in a game when they drained 25 threes during a 123-98 drubbing of the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of the Easter Conference Semi-Finals.

JR Smith posted this photo to his Facebook account with a single sentence: “I think this is a credit of just how hard we work.”

The Cavs take a 2-0 series lead to Atlanta where the series will resume on Friday night.

Cavs Sweep Into The Second Round

The Cavaliers completed a first round sweep of the Detroit Pistons last night winning their opening round series 4-0. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined to average more than 50 points per game in the series. The Cavs now rest waiting for the winner of the Celtics and Hawks series which is knotted at two games a piece.

Do you think the Cavs are ready to make another run to the NBA Finals?

Sea of Wine & Gold

It’s almost time for the NBA Playoffs once again and the Cavs have secured the #1 spot in the East. Last year, Instagram user jennifersteer had this to say when she snapped this shot: “A sea of wine. #AllinCLE #NBAFinals #Cleveland”

How do you think the Cavaliers will do in this year’s post season? Do they have what it takes to bring a title to C-town?

A Cheat Sheet For Tonight’s Tribe Game Courtesy @zgebler

I found this little piece of brilliance on Twitter this morning while going through my feed.  As you know, the Indians are hosting the Wild Card game tonight a Progressive Field against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays in a one game playoff which will determine who goes on to face the Red Sox on Friday.  Here’s hoping that we get to hear the “GONE!!!” part of this flow chart quite often tonight.  Let’s Go Tribe!!!

A Swing And A Drive… Are You Kidding Me?!?!?

In case you haven’t noticed (and judging by the attendance you haven’t) the Indians are in the thick of the playoff race here in late September.  Last night, Jason Giambi sent the Progressive Field crowd home happy when he hit a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to beat the Chicago White Sox.

If you’re a baseball fan you already know this, but Cleveland is lucky to have two of the best voices in the business to call our games: Matt Underwood and Tom Hamilton.  Hamilton has long been known as one of the best voices in baseball and his home run calls have become iconic.  Underwood… especially last night… has been taking up the mantle of home run calls as well.  Here’s both of them in all their glory.

– Matt Underwood’s Call
– Tom Hamilton’s Call

I’m typically a Hamilton guy, but I think (at least for last night) I may have to give the nod to Underwood.  Either way, it was an incredible win and it put the Tribe that much close to playoff baseball.  Tonight the Indians close the regular season at Progressive Field.  Get out and support them!

That’s Cleveland Baby!!!
