AROUND THE WEB:
— A Toronto judge has blocked an attempt to ban the Cleveland Indians’ Chief Wahoo logo from being worn in Canada during the ALCS.
After indigenous people advocate Douglas Cardinal filed suit with the Supreme Court of Justice in Toronto to ban the use of the logo in Toronto arguing it is offensive, a judge ruled the team can continue using the logo in the Canadian city.
Cardinal is an architect who designed New York’s National Museum of the American Indian and is a member of the Blackfoot tribe.
“Using a racially discriminatory caricature is a violation of the Ontario human rights code,” Cardinal’s lawyer, Monique Jilesen, told the Ontario Superior Court.
Jilesen argued the Indians could play the game in their spring training uniforms, which do not have the Chief Wahoo logo on them.
But the judge denied the request.
“Given the demands for completing the League Championship Series in a timely manner, MLB will defend Cleveland’s right to use their name that has been in existence for more than 100 years,” MLB responded in a statement.
“We would welcome a thoughtful and inclusive dialogue to address these concerns outside the context of litigation,” the statement also said.
The Indians wore the Chief Wahoo logo in Monday night’s Game 3 and beat the Blue Jays, 4-2.
— It seems Jim Harbaugh will do almost anything for a steak sandwich.
The University of Michigan football coach recently turned up as a member of the chain gang at a high school in Albany, California, for what many assumed was a chance for him to scout El Cerrito High School offensive tackle Aaron Banks.
When asked why he was there, Harbaugh gave a surprising reason.
“They needed a guy. I was promised a tri-tip steak sandwich at halftime, that was all I needed to hear,” he said.
This isn’t the first time Harbaugh has been inspired by meat.
When a Michigan Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse promised customers a special discount equal to Harbaugh’s Wolverines’ winning-point differential, Michigan demolished Rutgers 78-0 on Oct. 8.
Harbaugh even went to the restaurant himself to take advantage of his accomplishment.
— Frank Kaminsky hates the Cubs.
The Hornets center and devoted White Sox fan returned to his hometown of Chicago with the Hornets for a preseason game and showed his distain for the Cubs by wearing a Steve Bartman jersey around town.
He showed up for the game against the Bulls on Monday wearing the jersey and also wore it to Wrigleyville on Sunday. The Cubs lost on Sunday, so apparently this is working for Kaminsky.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Of course, we would not stand in Torey’s way, as we discussed last week. In my opinion, he’s ready to be a major league manager.” — Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, on bench coach Torey Lovullo possibly taking a managerial position with another team
THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY: The Red Sox, facing elimination in Game 5 of the 2007 ALCS, began their comeback against the Indians with a 7-1 victory as Josh Beckett pitched eight innings and recorded 11 strikeouts.
