Kickin' Off Summer with a Indians Tweetup

What a great way to kick off the first official day of Summer 2012 --- filled with lots of Tweeps and my favorite sports team, the Cleveland Indians!

It was another great Tweetup! This time it was held at GoodFellers (the old Cooperstown and Local Heroes.) It was a hot night and by the time the room was full it was even muggy inside. This Tweep said it best!
Early birds got the worm Mike Hargrove bobblehead dolls and t-shirts plus they had giveaways of all sorts of fun stuff like tickets to the Social Suite and gift certificates.
We had some nibbles and brewskies and mingled. Got to see the awesome @sos_jr@KaseyCrabtree@MaryLeeS and @taawd and make some new friends too. 

So nice to meet some of my favorite Tweeps like @LaVieBoheme73,  @ClevelandChick@VerizonAL, and @azrael! I even tried to recruit Heather's friend Tim to actually JOIN Twitter instead of just stalking. We'll see if it worked! (I hope you are reading this Tim! - hint hint)

And I finally got to meet Mike from @didtribewin (the blog that beat me in the Blogger Bracketsand his super sweet wife. Happy Birthday Mike - glad the Tribe gave you a win for your special day! Missed @KTOinCLE and @nidhizzle (damn traffic!)
me and @MaryLeeS
A fun time was had by all. The Running Condiments even stopped by to show us some love.

Afterwards, I walked over to the ball field to check out the game. I didn't actually go in - it was WAY too hot and humid for me - but I was really wanting to cheer on our Indians!

When I got home, I watched the game in the air conditioned comfort of my living room. So happy for the win and the SWEEP! #WINdians at it again!

Thanks so much to the Cleveland Indians, and Goodfellers for treating us to a really fun night downtown. @denisep@dan_labbe and @ack did such a great job!!

So now, get down to Progressive Field and see our first place Indians for yourself. And don't forget the hot dog!

Check out the pics from here. You'll get to see me get squeezed by the ornery Ketchup!
