Where are you little fans? (Where are you?)

Whoah oh, oh, oh-uh-oh
Whoah oh, oh, oh-uh-oh

Twinkle twinkle little fans
I don’t see you in the stands

Wish we may, wish we might
Win another game tonight

Searched all over for a crowd
That can cheer the Tribe on loud

Whoah oh, oh, oh-uh-oh
Whoah oh, oh, oh-uh-oh

Maybe it’s the “2005 Swoon” that is making the fans afraid of the last week of the regular season.
Could it be the offensive breakdown after the All-Star Break?
Maybe it’s the fact that we haven’t won a World Series since 1948.
Aw heck, let’s blame Soccer!
The Cleveland Indians announced that they drew over 102,000 fans for the 3-game Detroit series. That’s only a little over 34,000 fans per game. This is the same town that supported their Indians with a Major league record 455 sold out games from 1995 through 2001.
Bruce Drennan, on his nightly talk show receives live calls and reads fan
e-mails on the air. Most of the callers are very upbeat, happy, and pleased with the Tribe. However, there is a disturbing number that still think the Indians are going to choke again in the last week or get creamed in the first round of the playoffs. They are still picking on Wedge, Nixon, Peralta, Westbrook, and even Blake!
Get over it!

This team is the real deal!
They are currently tied for the best record in all of baseball!
“But they can’t beat New York!”
Yeah? Bring ‘em on!
This is a totally different team than the one that lost all six regular season games to the Yankees. No doubt, the Yankees hit…but we pitch and our offense is alive and livin’ for the comeback! I hope we play the Yankees in the first round. We will gain the media attention we so deserve as we methodically come at the Yankees from all sides.
Choke? Come on, this team has no quit in them!
And what if they did lose in the first round of the playoffs? Would you rather have them 16 games behind, spinning their wheels until the regular season is over?
It’s time to celebrate! Lighten up and enjoy the ride!
But know this…the 2007 Cleveland Indians are more than able to hold their own with any opponent and make it to the World Series!
With that said, dress in red, and get down to the Jake for the last 3 regular season home games…I’ll see ya there!
