Lou Boudreau, Manager of the Cleveland Indians once blew a game when he blew his nose, forgetting that the "steal" sign was putting a towel to his face.
2007 brought many more oddities to Cleveland;
The Snowed-Out Indians Opening WeekendThe "Home Games" played in Milwaukee and Seattle
The "Phantom Run" taken off the score board 3 innings later vs. BaltimoreBug-Gate, game 2 of the Yankees-Indians ALDS
How about "The Field Goal" vs. the Ravens that bounced off the center post of the goal post and back onto the field, forcing the Ravens to come back onto the field after going to their locker room with what they were sure was a victory?!We have some great traditions in Cleveland sports that are laced with oddities. I suppose we wouldn't have them any other way, except to include a championship or three. If the Colts win tonight, all three major sports teams in Cleveland will be in the playoffs for the first time in a calendar year!
Go Indians, go Cavs, go Browns, and go Colts!
Happy New Year!
