Low Blow by Indians, No Blow for Beckett

The Cleveland Indians have announced that country music singer Danielle Peck will sing the National Anthem before Game 5 of the ALCS tonight. This wouldn’t necessarily be news of any kind, except for the fact that Peck is Josh Beckett’s ex-girlfriend. Yes, the same Josh Beckett who will be taking the mound for the visiting New England Red Socks tonight in Cleveland.

“It’s an incredible coincidence. Honestly,” said Indians spokesman Bob DiBiasio. “She’s from Ohio. Her entire family are Indians fans. We did not know anything about her connections to Beckett. The next day, we find out the rest of the story. How are we supposed to know who Josh Beckett dates?”

My guess is that Red Socks fans will blame the loss on this stunt if the Indians win tonight.

    This might be the coolest booking in sports history. I applaud the efforts of the Indians organization.

    you mean like the way the yankee fans blame the midges for losing the Indians series?

  3. LairdNYC Says:

    absolutely the same thing about the midges, although the bugs were the excuse for that game, not the series.
