Disguise the Limit for Manziel Fans in Lake County

The Lake County Captains, located in the Cleveland suburb of Eastlake, Ohio, have made an annual habit of staging satirical tributes to Cleveland’s ignominious sports history. It comes as no surprise, then, that the Class A Indians affiliate is having a little bit of fun with the latest controversy surrounding Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.

For those who unaware of this latest bit of ridiculousness: Manziel partied in disguise in Las Vegas last weekend, wearing glasses, a blond wig, a fake mustache and a hoodie. During this period of surreptitious bacchanalia, he went under the assumed name of “Billy.”

Enter the Captains, via Twitter, bringing their trolling A-game:

To the victor, goes the spoils.

The mayor of Flavortown need not apply, however.

While waiting for the fan submissions to roll in, please enjoy the Captains’ 2014 homage to Major League. 

I, meanwhile, will be once again reliving the greatest moment of my life. This happened in Lake County in 2011.
