This is going to be a entry with a lot of different info, so brace yourself. :}
First off, the home-run derby of last night. I watched the whole thing, and let me tell you..I was so wrong in my predictions! I thought it would come down to Albert and Carlos, & it came down to Nelson & Price. Who, “became king” according to the announcers. I was very suprised that Albert didn’t win, I thought he would at least be the top two. I enjoyed the derby a lot, and the special thing is..this was the first one I ever saw! It wont be my first All-Star game though, I watched that last year and stayed up until 1:00 in the morning.
Albert Pujols did very well though, I really liked his swing. The weird thing I noticed was that before when he swung, he had a kick to it, & then he suddenly didn’t. Either he was trying to lucky up his swing, or he was just tired, I’m not sure.
Okay, now into my Tribe-Filled Life. I cant have an Indians blog without talking about just how obsessive I am about my team. First off, my room. Every year I get more Tribe stuff to put in my room, & this is what I have so far : An Indians blanket and matching pillow, a Grady Sizemore Pennant, a “Official Indians Clubhouse” sign that you see before you enter my room, a Tribe Teddy Bear,a Grady Sizemore Cup, a Indians pennant, a Indians license plate, a Shin-Shoo-Choo poster, a HUGE blow up bat, a Mini Indians bat, a Indians doorhanger, a Indians flag, an Indians Pez Dispenser, a Indians ticket, 2 Tribe headbands and 2 sweatbands, a Indians cup, a Omar Vizquel baseball, and a regular Tribe baseball, & some pictures around my room. Now that’s just accesories..I have a lot of Tribe clothes too. I am going to put some pics below.
These are not all my Tribe things, just some of them. & The words about Cleveland fans is what is on the back of my Indians Pez Dispenser. 🙂
Last but NOT least, the All-Star Game. Who do you all think will win? I hope the AL wins, and to be honest I think they will. I’m predicting another extra inning game. Victor Martinez is catching, & he is the only representative going to the game for us. He said this about the All Star Game ; “Getting to be here with my family and enjoying it is great,” he said. “You look around and you see all these great players, and you have to enjoy it. The All-Star Game is all about having fun.” He was also asked where he would like to be next & said ; “I would like to stay [with Cleveland],” he said, “and hopefully retire as an Indian.”
