DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Two Cleveland businessmen took it into their own hands to get the "Wild Thing" Charlie Sheen in town for Game 7 of the World Series. His plane arrived at about 4 p.m. at Burke Lakefront Airport.
"I didn't know the reception would be quite like this," Sheen said. "We still have a game to play. I'm just a spectator."
Bobby George of Corporate Management Group and Tony Madalone, owner of apparel company Fresh Brewed Tees partnered up to bring Sheen to Cleveland. A music producer, GT helped close the deal.
On his way to Progressive Field Sheen stopped to chat with fans and get them fired up for the game.
"Tonight is our night because you know what, Cleveland graciously invited its favorite son home and guess what, guess what..this [bleep] showed up!" Sheen yelled. "Tonight is the wrong night to be from Chi-town, [bleep]!"
"What an awesome opportunity for Cleveland. We're die hard Clevelanders and wanted to do this for the fans. There's no better way to rally everyone than to bring Wild Thing to Cleveland!" said Tony Madalone.
"Every time I watch Vaughn come out in Major League I get chills. Tony and I couldn't let this opportunity slip by us. We decided to bring out Vaughn must have been the entrepreneurial spirit in us, because we were both working on this simultaneously," said Bobby George.
Sheen tweeted earlier Wednesday that he was on his way to Cleveland.
The star recently expressed disdain after getting snubbed for a first pitch during the World Series.
The Indians will host the Cubs for Game 7 beginning at 8 p.m. EST.
