I think we all had reservations about how this Tribe season would go, both from a baseball stand point and a life stand point too. But even though the season is shortened, late season, and post season baseball is still incredible to watch.
Three times this week, the Tribe had walk off wins in meaningful games and the area is a abuzz about it. Now today, we can all catch our breath and get ready for the post season that starts tomorrow. This only happens with a MLB team in town. The every-day-ness of it is the key. Even if it's only 60 games this year, I'm bummed we aren't playing today! And man, do we need a nice distraction. I find when I'm watching the Tribe these days, it's all I can think about, and I think we all need that.
I know there were a bunch of social media experts out there that were poo-pooing the whole Clevinger (BTW he's hurt again) trade thing, and there were calls to cut Zac Plesac (BTW he's pitching incredibly well) after his really bad decision making earlier in the year. I really wish "fans" would quit whining about the ownership, and management with the Tribe. This franchise has proven to us all, that it can be done, and compete with anyone even the teams with the huge money. Then the 8 game losing streak didn't look good, and Manager Terry Francona being out most of the year was a drag as well. And sports radio experts were writing us off. Take off your blinders, and stop the go-to old and tired complaining about Cleveland "poor me routine"
This season as reminded me of a few things that are really good to remember. One, baseball is the greatest game in the world. Two, the Tribe may be the best run organization in all of MLB. They have no real money in a small market, and somehow, we have won more games than any other team in the American League since 2013. We are in the playoffs again, we will have the Cy Young winner yet again (Shane Bieber) , and more than likely the MVP (Jose Ramirez). And three, our lives, our passion, and our desire to have a good life, no matter what is in front of us, is more powerful than the things or people that try to weigh us down.
There is no doubt we all would rather be at these games than not, but right now - not possible. And sure, MLB has it's problems off the field, and that ticks me and everyone off. But when you're in a race to win the World Series, it all fades and we can sit back, and enjoy this amazing ride.

This will not be a negative post. I don't write them here - or on Social Media. But now that fall is here, I can't say I'm ready for it.
Understanding that there are some wonderful aspects to the 4th season, I do like the color, some of the weather is fine, and some of the traditions are great. But what always makes me, and others, a little bit sad, is the fact that summer is over. I don't really care for long weeks of 95 degrees, but I do like the fact that you know what you're gonna get when you walk outside. Warm.
Fall is the chameleon season. There's the fantastic fall, 65, wonderful golf, colorful leaves, pumpkin flavors, sunny Thanksgivings, wonderfully crisp mornings and evenings. Then there's the 38 and flurries, with blustery winds, slush, Halloween in the snow, and dark skies, with shorter days. That is still fall, and there are every imaginable kinds of day in between each.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't go into some huge depression over this. I get it, seasons change. And the fact that we have four seasons here is a good lesson, and metaphoric for our lives in general. There are things to be learned from them. During your life, heck during your week, you will have many different kind of days, and stretches. And you must live through fall, to survive the winter, to welcome the spring, and to love the summer. The seasons, and fall in particular, remind us that that life has an admission price.
Maybe in the longest of runs, I may not dislike fall as much as I may profess. And maybe I hold fall responsible for the end of summer. But I do know that in order to welcome the next summer that seems so far away, we first must usher in the fall, which has now knocked at our doors.

It’s been a long crazy year and working on this music has felt so liberating from the madness of the world. When we think about “Christmas” we think of family, peace, rest, love and reflection, gratitude, celebration and we wanted this music to be the soundtrack of what Christmas is to us and hopefully spread a little of that to all of you through this project. We are so excited to share with you our Christmas EP, “When I Think About Christmas” it will be out everywhere 10/16!! Where does your mind go when you think about Christmas, What does Christmas mean to you? ✨?❤️
