The Duck Quacks at Twilight

Playoff time is here


October 3, 2007

Its a great day here at the Duck, as the playoffs begin and my team, the Cleveland Indians, are front and center, tied for the best record in all of baseball, as the home team hosting the Evil Empire, better known as the Yankees.

Hope springs eternal in Cleveland. Our team, ranked second in the ESPN misery index of suffering baseball fans, is now a very likable, exciting, group of players, led by Grady Sizemore, Victor Martinez, CC Sabathia, Fausto Carmona, and Pronk, perhaps the best nickname in all of baseball. I’m here to give the baseball loving IR world a little dose of Cleveland Rocks.
