Detroit is Hockeytown Tigers Town

Pinch me.

The Detroit Tigers are in the MLB Playoffs .

A handful of friends asked throughout the summer, "why haven’t you posted anything about the Tigers?" Simply put, I didn’t want to jinx them. I’m very superstitious, and I’ve seen too many collapses down the stretch in baseball. In fact, while the Tigers definitely deserve a playoff spot, and could finish with the #1 seed in the AL, they were pushed hard by both the Twins and the White Sox. But they made it, and I’ll take it – even if they end up with the Wild Card and lose in the first round.

What a huge season this was, not only for the team, but for the city of Detroit. After playoff disappointments from the Pistons and Red Wings, and the hilarity that is the Detroit Lions, the Tigers gave us something great this season. I’m no baseball expert, so I’ll leave the analysis to others. In fact, I know so little about baseball that the only reason I knew Verlander was a dawg is because my "neighbor" at work used to date him. He’s from Goochland, VA. Goochland?!

Anyway, this one’s for Matt S., Jake, Dieterface, Craig Boez, and everybody else that was a fan before 2006. Just like the ND game a few weeks back, stuff like this doesn’t happen every day. Enjoy it. TIGERS!!... PLAYOFFS!!

I love the Lions don't get me wrong... but it will be a nice transition from post-season Tigers into the Detroit Pistons season... One thing the Tigers must do is to continue to build upon this season and not let this be a fluke... Go TIGERS!
