Go Tigers!!!

Written By: Gary on October 21, 2006 2 Comments

The Detroit Tigers made it to the World Series!!!! It’s totally weird that no one knew who it was that we were going to play until less than two days ago. Game one is tonight.

All I really remember about the last time we made it (in ’84) was watching the news as the fans went nuts (they flipped/burned some cars and other stuff) and the newscasters were talking all very excitedly about the celebration. And I’m thinking that “this isn’t good” and then the national news came on and used the same footage with “Riots” in all the captions and descriptions that they used…

    I remember the 84 series well. Seems to me we (Detroit) started the tradition of burning down the town when winning a sports championship :)

    I’m watching the WS now – while I’m sure it’s gorgeous, Comerica Park simply cannot hold a candle to the old Tiger Stadium. I love those old style parks.

    And just a snark for a moment, you’d think that with all his cash, Bob Seger could get to a dentist once in a while – the close ups of him singing the national anthem were horrific!
