2012-01-25T17:04:13.197-05:00

I was NEVER happier to be so wrong. I don't think too many folks saw it coming, and that made it all the more fun when it happened.

From January 21:
"Prince Fielder

Sigh. I would not even list him, but since so many delusional fans keep clamoring for him, let us outline why Prince will not be coming here.

1. He's looking for a long term deal, and there is no reason to think he won't get one. His agent is Scott Boras. Do you really think Boras would even allow him to entertain the idea of a one year contract? Please awaken from this dream state and return to the realm of possibility.

2. He's famously estranged from his pops, and would face nothing but constant hounding about Cecil if he played here. Even fond memories of hitting batting practice home runs as a 13 year old at Tiger Stadium will do nothing to sway him.

3. He plays first base. Ahem.

Let's move on, shall we?"

Don't worry, Jen. On Phil Naessen's podcast I dismissed Prince-to-the-Tigers, too.

But isn't crow DELICIOUS sometimes??

That's a good plan. It really is like losing an old friend. Sigh.

I wrote a very similar post a while ago because I'm in the same spot you are in. I will no longer have a Tiger.

I don't know yet who will be my Tiger next year. I may have to wait until after Spring Training to make my mind up.

BTW, my Tigers blog, named after Johnny Grubb---who wore no. 30!!!!

2011-10-18T06:36:16.119-04:00

The aforementioned jury duty. It's Federal District court in Detroit. I did get to drive by old TIger Stadium, so I guess that's a bonus....;)

I know this isn't the point, but...why were you coming home from the "Detroit courthouse"???

2011-10-05T22:29:38.978-04:00

We have the same 3 guys, just positioned differently. I have Maddon #1, followed by Leyland and Washington. Hey, we can agree to disagree, but at least we aren't Tom Verducci of SI, who had the Indian's Manny Acta 3rd, and no Leyland on his ballot.

Worry not, my fair maiden. The Tigers are going to win this thing by 8-10 games. You heard it here first.

2011-06-22T18:46:44.784-04:00

Just for the record, it's not that I hate Twitter. I just didn't need another time-suckage outlet and whatnot. Thanks for theTwitter shout-out by the way, even if I was being facetious about followers. Ha.

2011-06-22T04:55:53.839-04:00

Just embrace it, Jen! It's okay.

Think of Twitter as allowing you to "blog" all the things too short to justify their own posts.

We'll get you those 20 followers, toot sweet.

2011-06-12T21:52:07.711-04:00

I know right? We can't take the Sox' sloppy seconds.

Comerica does play snippets of Detroit Rock City during games, so that could be a natural choice. I'm sure a lot of people would advocate for something by Kid Rock, since he's prominent in the sports scene here.

2011-06-11T16:07:16.042-04:00

Thanks for ruining that song for. If there is one thing I can't stand it's anything associated with the ChiSox. :o)

If they want to use a song that has Detroit in it, why not go with something like 'Detroit Rock City'? Not only does it have the city in the title, but it's a song that can get people on their feet and it's loud and fast and full of energy.

2011-05-16T04:38:13.102-04:00

That's OK; I wear them remedially, so I'll take a Tigers scarf, please!

;-)

2011-05-15T19:54:40.889-04:00

Oh no, I didn't think anyone would call me on that! Sadly my talents with yarn are strictly remedial. Hats, scarves and the occasional dish cloth. Sad.

2011-05-11T23:29:42.818-04:00

LOL...I once wrote on my non-sports blog about how amazing it is that Mike Ilitch has made a mint off a pizza product that is as bad as Little Caesars is!

I think it's partly due to, when Little Caesars started, there were like 3 places to get pizza in Detroit.

But now? Clearly marketing is part of it, but sooner or later isn't it whether the pie is good or not? Even Domino's admitted they sucked!

Who buys/eats Little Caesars pizza, if you're not at a Tigers or Red Wings game? Clearly, someone is! Even though it's sauce on cardboard.

I tweeted Will Rhymes about my method to bring him home. We will see if he writes back.

Wish you hadn't called out Thomas; I was believing you until then.

Maybe when the ballplayers start playing shirtless and making goo-goo eyes at us in the stands like that FSN girl does....;)
