Pulse of the Tribe: The Real Opening Day
All we need to do today... is celebrate...
Of course, we have many reasons to celebrate. There is nothing better than an Opening Day in Cleveland, even if the Indians have already started playing. Sure MLB's "Opening Day" was earlier this week, and shoot, the first game was in Australia this year. That technically opened up the MLB season and even then, Sunday night's contest was the first official game in April.
But today... Today is the real Opening Day that everyone in the 216 and surrounding local areas waits for.
Nothing beats the excitement or energy than what this day is and means to everyone who loves the Cleveland Indians.
Let's just add on with the fact that the Indians are already 2-1 after taking a series from the defending AL West champion Oakland Athletics.
And with more cause for celebration, the Indians felt like now was as good of a time as any to announce that Jason Kipnis has been locked up with a six-year contract extension.
Oh happy day... The best from the rest of you... Because ya'll are saying it just as well, if not better, than I can.
It's a great day in Cleveland! #TribeOpener 💙❤️
