Come introduce yourself at Let's Go Tribe

Come and get to know your neighbors!

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Many of you have been around these parts for quite a long time, while some of you just experienced your first Opening Day at Let's Go Tribe. Whether you're an old hand or a newbie, a prolific commenter or a lurker, I think the start of a new season always makes for a good time to get to know one another. If you're fairly new here, or haven't commented much, this is a good way to introduce yourself and dip your toes a bit. The bottom item is for more seasoned commenters, giving you the opportunity to explain an LGT meme that might befuddle newcomers in a way that potentially makes them feel unwelcome.

I've put together a series of questions, and am inviting you to copy and paste the blank numbers at the bottom of the post into the comments, and then fill in answers for as many as you'd like. If you'd prefer to only answer some of them, that's fine too:

  1. What is your first name? Otis (just kidding)
  2. Where do you live? Chicago
  3. Where did you grow up? Oak Park, IL (first suburb west of downtown Chicago)
  4. When did you become an Indians fan? 1986 when they were my t-ball team
  5. What do you do when you're not at LGT? Teach 4th grade, run, live the engaged life
  6. Who is your favorite current Indian? Carlos Santana
  7. Who is your favorite former Indian? Jim Thome
  8. Who is your least-favorite baseball player? Frank Thomas
  9. What is your favorite book? To Kill a Mockingbird
  10. What is your favorite TV show? The Simpsons
  11. Who is your favorite movie character? Indiana Jones
  12. If you could only listen to one musical act for the rest of your life? The Rolling Stones
  13. Where in the world would you most like to visit? New Zealand (or maybe Patagonia)
  14. Who would win in a fight, a gorilla or a grizzly bear? The bear
  15. What superpower do you want? I'd like to be semi-indestructible, like Wolverine
