THE GUIDE TO BEING A SILLY INDIANS FAN IN THE AGE OF TWITTER #GoodGuyDavidMurphy
The Indians have been a frustrating lot early this season. It seems like they always give up runs right after scoring them, if we get a really good start we don't seem to score any runs. When we win we win ugly, and when we lose we lose in the worst ways. But we are their fans and we need rallying cries, to hope that the ship gets righted like it did last season.
Since Twitter has become the quintessential place to discuss anything with other fans, my main contribution for the Indians has been introducing the wonders of David Murphy. When looking up information about Murphy I discovered that he was religious and refrains from swearing, and if overall seen as a good guy. And sure enough I found a Texas Rangers fan blog devoted to Murphy called Good Guy David Murphy.
The tag #GoodGuyDavidMurphy moved on to Cleveland and since the beginning of the season I have posted various takes on the good things that Murphy has done.
I'm not the only one who has used it, I have started finding others posting their own #GoodGuyDavidMurphy memes onto Twitter. And the official Indians twitter referred to Murphy with the #GoodGuyDavidMurphy tag. I hope someday those Rangers fans see what they have started for us.
