Hey New York.....HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES????????
Before I begin my gloating, I have to tip my cap to the Yankees. They played 8 innings of great baseball, full of tremendous power and dominant pitching. But the one small problem with that is baseball games are 9 innings long. The Guardians strung together 5 singles in the bottom of the 9th to score three runs and walked off 6-5 winners. 15 hits to 5 hits. Small ball vs. the long ball. Late game heroics vs a late game choke job. Guardians baseball vs Yankees baseball.
Put this Yankees fan reaction video on replay and let it loop for the rest of my life:
And hang this win probability chart in the Cleveland Museum of Art:
And give this video of the entire stadium singing the SpongeBob SquarePants song an Oscar.
AND UPDATE THIS DAMN STATISTIC!!!!!
This might be the greatest night in Cleveland sports history. There's just something special about beating the big city Yankees when you come from a small town like Cleveland. I love this team more than I've loved anything in my life. Going toe to toe with the Evil Empire and not backing down an inch, doing it OUR WAY. And now tomorrow we've got a chance to send them back to that trash infested city that they call home, or better yet, off to their vacation beach houses.

Please delete this, Will Rouse. Tonight is not about me or the 31 blogs I've written this week as a part-time employee. Tonight is about the Guardians, the beautiful newly weds, and my Dad bringing the positive vibes with his outfit.
ONE MORE WIN!!!!!
