"Hear the sound of the battle call"

southpaw.jpgThe first piece of news I have for you is that the White Sox have a mascot. His name is Southpaw, and he appears to be some sort of green dinosaur. I’m at U.S. Cellular Field about nine times a year, and I’ve never even noticed Southpaw. Shows how much I know.

The second piece of news is that Southpaw (@Southpaw) and the Tribe’s mascot, Slider (@SliderTheMascot), are about to have a Twitter battle during Wednesday’s 12:05 p.m. ET series finale between their respective clubs. Fans are asked to add the hashtag #GoTribe or #GoWhiteSox to their tweets during that day’s game. The team with the most tweets wins, and the losing team’s mascot will have to pay tribute to the winner before a future Tribe-Sox game. The fan who submits the deciding hashtag tweet and three friends will be treated to a pregame meal with either a Cleveland or Chicago theme, depending on the outcome.

Most importantly, for each #GoTribe and #GoWhiteSox hashtag that is tweeted during the game, each team will donate $1, up to a total of $1,000 per club, to Stand Up To Cancer, a non-profit organization that raises funds for research and the delivery of new therapies to cancer patients.

The contest will begin with Wednesday’s first pitch and conclude with the last out. For more information, visit this site.

What is a Cleveland theme meal!! When I lived in the area oh those many years ago (hint, they won the most games ever by an American League team one year I was there) the food around Cleveland was Tastless!! I remember alot of overcooked meat and boiled potatos! The last year I was there my Mom came up withus and thankgoodness! We actually got some spice in our food. Back then Ohioans thought black pepper was an exotic spice! Toronto was Cleveland’s closes match in whitebreadiness! I love Ohio and have a ton of relatives in the area – but the food was BORING!

All right, you win. I guess I have to go back to Twitter and defend my team’s honor … sigh …
