Yankees invade Indians' territory and conquer them

Fred Hofstetter on October 12, 2017

The Yankees stormed the shores of Progressive Field and conquered the Indians by force in Game 5 of the ALDS.

Shortly after the game, the Yankees erected a flag to commemorate their brutal victory.

Led by the heroic and brave Aroldis Chapman, the Yankees landed ashore at the Indians’ Progressive Field and defeated them in an epic struggle for survival in the MLB playoffs.

Under the auspices of Yankees’ royalty Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi, Yankees players voyaged into Indians’ territory and eliminated them from playoff contention, dancing atop their conquered territory as the remaining Indians sheepishly withdrew in dishonor.

Several Yankees were heard in the clubhouse chanting “This is our house now!” while others adorned the clubhouse in Western cultural Yankees apparel and memorabilia.
