The Curse of Chief Wahoo is in the World Series again

by Cleveland Frowns on October 20, 2016

There sure is a lot to love about this Cleveland Indians team, and to see them make the World Series in the same year that LeBron’s Cavaliers broke Cleveland’s epic 52-year championship drought is really something. But until Northeast Ohioans can manage to demand that their billionaire sports-owners not employ open and casual racism with their sports logos and team names, the Curse of Chief Wahoo gives me more to believe in than these guys who get paid millions to play baseball with “Cleveland” on their shirts, most if not all of whom will leave Cleveland the first chance they get.

Many of my relatives, friends, and countless other good people would of course be overjoyed if the Indians could manage to break the Curse, and that would be great. But if the Curse of Wahoo beats the Indians again, it would be another strike against open and casual racism with sports logos and another win for the most righteous curse in sports, and that would be great, too.

In the meantime, folks should remember that a sports curse isn’t really any good unless it lets you get heartbreakingly close every once in awhile.

    Regardless of what happens tonight the front office should finally retire the Chief. If we win, great, drought’s gone, so it’s time to make new traditions for the 21st century without racist caricatures. If we lose, sad, but it goes to show that the curse of racism is stronger than the curse of a goat and it’s time to get rid of it so that we can get to another WS and win the damn thing.

    While I’m thinking about it, the perpetuated lie that the name “Indians” honors Native Americans needs to stop being told. What exactly has this organization done to help “Honor” Natives in the past or the present? Especially in light of the Dakota Access Pipeline issue that is dominating social media.

    Anyways, I’ve retired the old Wahoo hat I have and if I do get merchandise It only has the boring block C. Like I said, it’s time to start new, non-racist traditions. It’s time for basic human decency for all.
