Using Elvis Andrus for inspiration, Indians Minor Leaguer steals home

Everyone who's still wondering if Leonardo DiCaprio's top ever stopped spinning knows that an idea -- even the slightest, most fleeting -- can be the most powerful force in the world. Unfulfilled ideas are unshakeable, unquenchable. When Elvis Andrus stole home on Tuesday night, he unwittingly implanted a very compelling idea in the minds of an untold number of individuals around the world.

One of those individuals was Indians Minor Leaguer Bryson Myles.

In the third inning of the Akron RubberDucks' Double-A matchup against the Erie SeaWolves, Myles stood at third with two outs. He eyed the catcher, he eyed the pitcher, he remembered Andrus' blistering run the night before, and he took off.

Look at that: Not even a play from the pitcher. Myles capped a three-run inning for the Ducks, putting them on their way to a 6-1 victory. That is an idea capitalized. 

And no, Bryson. You aren't dreaming.
