For as long as I can remember, I've been a fan of the Cleveland Indians baseball team. Even during the years when they couldn't seem to win a game if their lives depended on it, I was a fan. My siblings are fans. My parents are fans. My dad took us to games at the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium when we were kids, usually to watch a battle against the Yankees. That old stadium has since been replaced by the beautiful Jacobs Field.

If you follow baseball at all, you might know that the Indians are still alive in post-season play! They are battling the Boston Red Sox in the playoffs right now, and the series is tied at 1-1. The Tribe is coming home to Cleveland to play games on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Well, guess who scored tickets for Tuesday night? Yep! Me!!!! Buddy Bill and I are going to the game. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Do I care that I won't get home until probably 2:00 AM and then have to get up for school? Not one bit! When will I get another chance to go to a playoff game?

That does mean I will miss Insanknitty at Yarn Haven on Tuesday night. I will knit, however. I promise. While waiting for the Tatamy Tweed to arrive I have been working on the cast aside Log Cabin afghan. I've also been working on Buddy Bill's Cobblestone sweater. And today I might just start another pair of socks. I have some Colinette Jitterbug calling my name.

As long as these playoff games are going, you'll be lucky if it's over by 2 a.m. Have fun!

Congrats! I'm still bitter about the time my brother scored tickets to one of the Cubs play-off games... and then promptly sold some of them on Ebay, without asking any other family members if they wanted first dibs at them. He's never going to live that down. Have a great time at the game!

Hope you have a great time tonight! Our whole city is going crazy right now... it's so awesome.

And I'm boycotting knitting SOX during any of the games... for obvious reasons.
