Yesterday, we updated you on a long-standing debt that Indians beat writer Paul Hoynes owed to a Twitter user. The origin: Back in September, this exchange took place.

As of yesterday, however, Hoynsie had yet to publicly acknowledge his impending dip nor actually enter the chill waters of Lake Erie, this despite the Tribe's berth in the Fall Classic being secured last week.



Well, this morning, he finally made good. (We'd like to think yesterday's post prodded Paul to finally take the plunge.)

Anyway, here's glorious video proof. And here's his short article to accompany his swim.
