CLEVELAND, Ohio– We live in an awesome town! And, the Indians and Destination Cleveland are making sure TBS knows it.
The Cleveland Indians tweeted out on Friday a photo showing several items including one that says “Cleveland- It’s Not That Bad, Have a Beer.” A Burning River Great Lakes beer is also included in the goody bag.
The tweet said, “.
@TheCLE has put together some goodie bags for TBS so the network can get a little more familiar w/our awesome town”
The analysts were shown opening them during the pregame show on TBS.

The goody bag is in response to what happened during a game against the Boston Red Sox.
TBS showed a graphic with some of their analysts in front of a river on fire. It was shown during post-game coverage.
The fire poked fun at the fire that broke out on the Cuyahoga River back in 1969.
It said “Welcome to Cleveland.”
A TBS spokesperson told FOX 8 News, “Cleveland is a great city, and we regret the use of the image. We look forward to putting the focus back on an exciting ALCS.”
