Damn you, Indians! 

Okay, you couldn't know.

But still - you could have beaten

the Marlins in the 11th inning,  when

my father was dying

and the Tribe was playing its last Series

of his life that

we would discuss, 2500 miles apart,

on the phone that Sunday

after I had wept because it

was THE LAST SERIES

and I only thought I

was watching the game.
