What’s In A Word?

Jason Kipnis was joking, but it still kind of fit.

I polled the Indians players on Wednesday, asking them each for one, simple word to paint the picture of the Wahoos’ 2012 season. One, quick adjective — harmless on the exterior, but bursting with meaning and significance.

Kipnis swiftly replied with “burgerflickle” then “traveshamockery.” The Tribe second baseman was mocking a Miller Lite commercial, though “traveshamockery” (a fusing of “travesty,” “sham” and “mockery”) isn’t too outlandish compared to some of the actual responses. Kipnis eventually settled upon “A lesson,” which is technically two words, but he did supply four words in total.

Here are some of the other responses:

Tragic

Interesting

Disappointment

Enlightening

Trying

Roller-coaster

Eye-opening

Revealing

Frustrating

Inconsistent

Exciting
