A Browns fan's reaction

I'm a week late on this video, but because it's about the terrible Browns, I have a feeling this could be replayed every week and still be applicable. Note: One of the words he uses about 20 seconds isn't exactly school/work/child friendly, but otherwise the video is clean.

Twitter and #Indians fans

I have been a fan of the Cleveland Indians since I knew what baseball was. I love the team and know that it won't always have a winning season.

Too bad the Cleveland Twitterverse doesn't feel the same way. During every game, my Twitter stream has been full of hatred toward the Tribe.

How mean is the Cleveland Twitterverse? Mean enough that Matt LaPorta deleted his Twitter account after fan harassment. That's cyber bullying.

If you don't like the Indians and how they're playing, don't watch. Why even waste the energy typing about it?

The whole situation reminds me of a blog post from Railbird J Slim, which said social media is making us mean and rude (in slightly more PG language). There are plenty of more productive things you could be doing with your time than complaining about something over which you have no control. (And yes, I know I could spend my time doing something more productive than complaining about complainers, but I'm almost finished here.)

It was a rough season, but I'm not a fair-weather fan (which is something else that garners complaints in the Cleveland Twitterverse). I'm going to like the Indians whether they're in first place or last, and I'm not going to harass players or fans who think otherwise.

Jim Thome's return to Cleveland

When news that slugger Jim Thome would be returning to Cleveland hit the Internet, social media users were buzzing with excitement.

Here's a quick Storify I put together with comments from Indians fans and information about Thome.

. @Alex_White6 lost some Cleveland followers

On Tuesday morning, Alex White posted a message on Twitter that elicited some varied and sometimes colorful responses from Cleveland Indians fans. Check out the Storify below to see what he said and just how passionate Cleveland fans can be.

My thoughts on the tweet: It was an immature comment, not well thought out. Sure, maybe Denver is a more beautiful city than Cleveland, and maybe it has more to offer. But the "With the exception of a few people" comment at the end of his tweet implies that there is something wrong with the people of Cleveland, the Indians organization and its fanbase. White should think before he tweets in the future - a lesson he probably learned well this week.
