Hafner Slammin It

Hafner served the clean up spot on Sunday after spending what seems like forever away from the plate.  With the bases loaded, Hafner swung the bat and launched one out of the park in what would be a 7-run 7th inning leading to a 9-1 win over the Mariners! 

We die-hard Tribe fans love the team we inexplicably follow and back (akin to die-hard Cubs fans), and when our "should-be" stars knock one out of the park or pitch a super game or make dazzling defensive plays, we are the first to stand up and shout a barrage of "WAHOO"s at the screen (or if lucky enough, at the players on the field in person). 

A team fan has a few favorite players, but we root for the TEAM above and beyond any individual player, though rooting for the team certainly means celebrating the individual accomplishments of the guys who bear the uniform.  As for supporting the owners and management?  That's another story.

Welcome back, Pronk!


  1. WahoooooO!!! very nice post. It is the support we gave to our teams and when they hear it their adrenalin keeps going high and they will surely give us a great game.

  2. I am so glad that Pronk is back to give our lineup a little bit of pop. Hopefully the grand slam on Sunday is just the beginning of good things for Pronk. He has been on the slide down ever since his great year a few seasons back, but he is still as deadly a hitter as we have in our lineup today. Go Travis!

  3. Thanks for your comments! I hope the Tribe and regroup for next year!
