The Impossible Return

Yankee fans are pumped about last night's victory over the Texas Rangers, in which the Bronx Bombers overcame an early 10-1 deficit to win 14-13.

Not bad New York, but not enough to impress us more jaded Clevelanders. Give us a call when you trail 14-2 in the bottom of the 7th, and then come back to win. That's what the Cleveland Indians did on the night of The Impossible Return.

Do you remember? In case you don't, or if you just want relive one of the few things Cleveland fans have had to smile about during this millennium, here's a flash presentation that takes you through the entire comeback, complete with the play-by-play from Tom Hamilton and Mike Hegan. (Click on "Watch this Movie" and the site will take you to the presentation).

As you listen to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when the Indians could put the fear of God into a team that would go on to win 116 games, keep your fingers crossed and hope that this year's edition of the Tribe can make it two in a row against a team that just may lose 116.

That was the first thing that I thought about when I saw the Yankees' highlights.
I'd forgotten that Cabrera was in the clean-up spot.
