For people in CLE the name makes sense and that’s all that matters. It’s an excellent move. Now if they can do something about that WS drought..
First I read about CBT and now this? White site am I on?
I find baseball as exciting as watching paint dry. I did watch when the Cubs and Boston and Toronto won their respective World Series. Those were historic moments. Other than that, meh. I understand how passionate people are about their sports. After how many years of Native people calling for changes to sports team names, finally something is happening. I don't get it like I don't get Kraken for Seattle's new NHL team, but whatever. It makes not difference to my life at all.
Except the Kraken will be crushed by my Canucks.
Its not as clear cut as you make it out "After how many years of Native people calling for changes to sports team names". Of course you can find information on groups that absolutely called for the change, but again, its not as black and white as you purport. I couldn't care less that the Washington Football Team of the Cleveland Guardians changed their names. Other than the Guardians sounding dumb to me, its just the name of a sports franchise that doesn't really effect anything. I just wanted to point out the other side of the story.
