Is This Any Way To Treat Our Guests?

I was saddened to read in the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER under Monday Moaning about a couple from Detroit who came to Cleveland to watch a Tiger/Indians ballgame. They told how awful their experience was because of rude people around them who not only teased them because they were Tiger fans but even threw food at them. They said even the ushers were rude to them. They mentioned that they spent a lot of money in Cleveland and didn’t expect that kind of treatment. This is the type of thing that gives Cleveland a bad name not to mention it's no way to treat people.

I'm sure if company came to visit the Clevelanders at their home, they would not treat them like that.  When out-of-towners and visiting teams come to the ballpark, we should treat them as our guests.  

I love this poem by John Wesley which was included in the book I read recently, Season of Life--A Football Star, a Boy, a Journey to Manhood by Jeffrey Marx:

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

Being kind is always, always better than being mean!

Yay I can see your blog!

It's awful when people treat others mean. We went to a Beavers game a couple of weeks ago and some of the Louisville Cardinal fans got on our shuttle bus and everyone gave them good natured ribbing but nothing mean spirited at all. It was rather nice to see.

Ugh that's too bad! I never saw that at Indians games when I lived in Cleveland, but I was usually in the student section so I'd imagine there weren't too many out of town guests in those sections.
