The Cleveland (name which will not be used)
Why You Should Hop on the Cleveland Bandwagon
As the Bay Area sports fan, wishing the city of Cleveland any more happiness than they already got is a little questionable. But then you realize they’re stuck with the Browns for a while, and you sorta feel bad for them again. This Cleveland team is actually really young, really talented, and motivated. The Indians have been on the verge for the past few years and finally have had a breakthrough. Root for guys like Francisco Lindor, Andrew Miller, and of course Terry Francona.
Why You Shouldn’t Hop on the Cleveland Bandwagon
They’re team name isn’t as much of a racial slur as the pro-football team in Washington D.C., but it’s despicable enough to have a serious beef with. Learn some actual history if you want to know why the term “Indian” is controversial. Take away their mascot and team name, Cleveland would be just as insufferable as Chicago of the Cubs were to win it all. As the likely Bay Area sports fan you are, another Cleveland major sports title, on top of all the “3-1” comments you’ll hear all season long in the NBA, might just be enough to drive you to hate all Cleveland sports for the rest of your life.
