There’s a good feeling in New York right now. The Yankees sitting pretty off a comeback win in a thrilling American League Wild Card play-in game and relishing the thought of game one against the AL’s top dog in the Cleveland Indians.
In a sly move ahead of last nights ALDS Game 1 between the Yanks and Tribe. The Yankees’ official Twitter account decided it was time to troll the Indians. And you know what?, they nailed it.
The above photo is ten years old, and it was snapped during the 2007 ALDS when the Yankees met the Indians in Ohio. Lebron, an Akron-native, grew up supporting the Yankees, though since then he has backed the Indians as their success has risen over the past few years.
This is what what LeBron had to say about his baseball allegiances last October when the Indians’ secured run to the World Series.
“I’m a supporter of winners,” James said, via the New York Post. “As a kid growing up, I needed inspiration to get out of the situation I was in. I loved the Bulls, Cowboys and loved the Yankees. Those are winning franchises. I liked them because they gave me hope of being a winner. That’s part of the reason I loved those teams but I definitely support what the Indians are doing right now.”
Were pretty certain this is one photo op he wished he’d have skipped.
