Cleveland’s Major Award

Cleveland is home to the newly rechristened Guardians MLB team and is also where the movie, A Christmas Story, was set. A key plot element of that movie is the arrival of Ralphie’s father’s special award. This prize was won in a contest. It is a hideous looking lamp that his father adores, but his mother detests. Pictured is a Guardian’s themed send up of the movie’s disembodied fishnet clad woman’s leg. You say potato. I say tomato. Let’s call the whole thing off. One thing that I wish that I could call off is the former guy’s latest scam. The day before, when he announced a “major announcement” was coming, I imagine that few people had non-fungible token trading card versions of himself portrayed as a superhero. I cannot begin to count how many years ago it must have been that he managed to look as svelte as he is portrayed in any of those images. Already the meme makers have created more contemporary and realistic versions, where all his rolls of fat bulge out everywhere from his spandex clad attire. One man’s special award is another’s major announcement. I just wish that I could call the whole thing off.
