This morning finds us in the City of Champions — Cleveland. UJ, Russell and I came up yesterday afternoon to watch an early edition of October baseball as the Tribe beat the Detroit Tigers, 1-0, in a brilliant display of bullpen management by manager Terry Francona. It was a fantastic nail-biter that ended in triumph. Then we walked to a nearby pub to learn that, thanks to a well-timed rain delay, we could watch the entirety of Ohio State’s epic beat down of Oklahoma.
Today we’re going to swing by Octoberfest on Public Square, then it’s off to see if the Browns can resemble a professional football team against the Ravens. Can we complete the Cleveland-Buckeyes trifecta? Or will we learn, as Meat Loaf once sang, that two out of three ain’t bad?
