Detroit Tigers - World Series-ly

I can hardly believe the team I referred to as our minor league baseball team is taking this town to the championship of baseball. Seriously. I would never have imagined it, and definitely would not have bet money on it. Every 22 years or so we get enjoy this baseball fever (1968, 1984, 2006).

Detroit is Championship City! Again!

This means all our professional teams have played in the playoffs this year (yes, our men's football team is not professional by anyone's stretch of imagination). The Pistons won the NBA championship in 2004, The Shock won the WNBA title this year, the Red Wings are always good and last brought the Stanley Cup to our fair town in 2002, and the Detroit Demolition of the Independent Women's Football League won 4 championships in a row from 2002 to 2005 based on a 52 game winning streak. Now the Tigers are getting close again.

And to all my friends in Chicago who were kind enough to rub my nose in their good fortune last year at Southwest Fox, the tables have sure turned. {g}
