Terry Francona needs to go to bed.
Terry Francona really needs a nap.
I don’t think the Indians manager has had a good night’s sleep since the playoffs started. During the ALCS, he had to find a dentist at 1 a.m. because his tooth popped out in his tobacco. Before Game 5 of the World Series, Tito found himself restless at 3:30 a.m. and ordered $44 worth of room service ice cream.
So did he sleep well the night before Game 7? No, not all.
Terry Francona had a nightmare last night that someone broke his ribs. He woke up to find he slept on top of his TV remote and had rib pain.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) November 2, 2016
When he woke up, he also had peanut butter on his glasses.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) November 2, 2016
I’m not pulling for any particular team in the game tonight. I’m just rooting for Tito to grab a warm glass of milk, put on an eye mask and get a good eight hours after it’s all done. That seems unlikely, though, considering he once stayed up all night eating 17 popsicles.
