I haven't posted in a LONG time -- I just haven't had anything to say. I've been in what has become an annual state, the autumnal doldrums. I used to like autumn more than any time of year -- the crisp chill, clear blue skies and great leaf colors. Now, though, I just associate it with things dying, cold weather and the ever-faster passage of time. But, here's the good news. . .
Last night, I got to be at a really great game. The Tigers shut out the stinking New York Yankees! Yes, I know that the Tigers clinched the division title today and, yes, I know that this was the day to be at Comerica, but last night was awesome! The atmosphere at the ballpark was electric -- one of the players said that, even though there were 43,000+ fans there, it felt like 100,000 to them on the field. Kenny Rogers pitched one his best games ever and it was just a great game to watch. AND there was a fight right in front of us and 4 NY fans had to be escorted out (one of them in a headlock). Ah, baseball at its finest!
I could have gone today, too, but I couldn't take the tension two days in a row. Hopefully, I'll get to go to one of the ALCS games. It's wonderful to be a Tigers fan right now. From Opening Day (which I was fortunate enough to attend), when we couldn't believe they had won, to the clincher today, this season has been quite an adventure! No one is laughing at the Tigers now!
I know there have been lots of exclamation points in this post, but that's how I feel -- I LOVE BASEBALL!
