What a hero

Unread postby British_Pharaoh » Wed Feb 20, 2013 5:26 pm

The Cleveland Indians' Albert Belle is being sued for more than $850,000 by the guardian of a teenager accused of egging the outfielder's home on Halloween.

The 16-year-old Cleveland Heights boy contended Belle gave chase in a Ford Explorer and bumped into him after Belle's home was hit with eggs by trick-or-treaters. Belle was charged with reckless operation for chasing after the boys and was fined $100.

I assume this was a news story from 1995 (or whenever that took place) because they describe Belle as an Indian in present tense. But yeah, I'm confused.

That "teenager" is almost 35 now.

Bet he goes to the Tribe game on June 1 for the Albert Belle bobblehead giveaway.

Should we tell him about the strike zone in the World Series, or make him suffer seeing it on his own?

It's only 10am and I got to see the cops taser a guy in person. It was pretty funny.

Sorry, I should have put OT.

I was just reminded of one of my favourite Albert stories and decided to post on here.
