So the Cleveland Indians baseball team got knocked out of the playoffs last night, losing to the Tampa Bay Rays by a score of 4-0. And there was much sorrow in the land of Cuyahoga.
I myself do not mourn the loss. I have long been fed up with the way that professional sports teams gouge and extort local communities by having them subsidize their fancy stadiums. But to add insult to injury, the Indians have that repulsive Chief Wahoo logo. As long as they keep their logo, I have no sympathy for the team, however much they may moan about not winning a World Series for so long. They can never even make the playoffs again, and it would not bother me.
Apparently these three fans who were whooping it up at the game did not get the memo with the revisionist history that is being put out that Wahoo, far from being insulting, is meant to ‘honor’ Native Americans. Right.
