With a noon time wind chill in Cleveland of negative 28 degrees, someone brave soul that runs the Indians twitter is ready to take on a rather dangerous challenge inspired by the classic Cleveland filmed holiday movie ‘A Christmas Story.’
The tweet, as you can see below, involves licking the foul pole at Progressive Field – something that no human being should be doing on a day like this (remember what happened to Flick from the movie when he did it?)
If we get 1,000,000 RTs, we'll lick the foul pole.
No, we're not warm yet.
Yes, we will do it. pic.twitter.com/aiykd0UpQV

Of course there’s a catch that likely will save someone (and the fire dept) the pain and suffering they would go through by trying such a feat, that being the teams’ official account is asking for no less than one million retweets of the tweet before taking on the task.
They had better hope that the tweet doesn’t go viral and actually reach that number – or someone had better get some hot water ready for the person that has to carry out the licking of the pole.
