The growth of Chisenwords to describe the fantastic feats and unfortunate follies of Cleveland Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall only continues to grow. While I doubt I'm first person to ever make a portmanteau out of the player's last name, I've championed their use since the offseason. Now, a mysterious figure known only as "Nate Turner" has emerged, asking PepsiCo to formally name the water cup trays that come with its Gatorade coolers as "Chisen-trays". My only recommendation is to drop the hyphen.
Let's recall the two separate occasions when Lonnie Chisendumped the trays of water on teammates after walk-off wins. The first came after Tyler Naquin's inside-the-park-homerun on September 19th.
The two-cup salute came in the heat of the moment, but Chisenhall made sure to fully load the Chisentray before Brandon Guyer's walk off on September 20th.
You can be a part of history; the moment when
a big unruly mob the concerned citizens of Cleveland fought corporate America and won. Sign the petition. Make it the Chisentray.
