What Had Happened Was: 10/20/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Cleveland Indians are headed to the World Series. I repeat, the Cleveland Indians are headed to the World Series. This is huge for the city of Cleveland. Yes, the Cavaliers won the NBA Finals after the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead with the unanimous MVP following the best regular-season performance in league history. But wouldn’t it be crazy if after decades of not having a championship, the city of Cleveland won not one … but two? The 30 for 30 Believeland might have to add yet another bonus scene to the documentary.
The Indians shut the Toronto Blue Jays out for the second time in the series, winning the game, 3-0, and leaving the team and fans super happy.
I STILL CANT BELIEVE THAT THE CLEVELAND INDIANS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES #RallyTogether
