the curse of chief wahoo
i grew up in cleveland. i suffered through the indians of the 80s, the drive, the fumble, the shot ... and if you don't count the cleveland crunch (indoor soccer...), the city of cleveland hasn't won a professional sports championship since 1964.
while some people blame the drought on the curse of rocky colavita ... or a more general cleveland sports curse, how about blaming things on our cute smiling little red racist friend?
while the cleveland jewish news isn't quite sure, i agree with rabbi jill that chief wahoo may be the real reason why cleveland sports teams thrive on disappointing us year after year.
in any case, i like my new old-school indians hat, without the wahoo logo...
