I’m a Michigan native with a long resume of radio experience beginning back in 1972 with on-air and sales work at stations in Ludington, Holland and Muskegon. I worked as News Director and WOOD-AM/FM in Grand Rapids from 1987 to 1997 and also was the play-by-play voice of the Michigan White Caps before landing at WXYT in 2001.
At CBS stations 1270 XYT The Sports Station and WWJ Newsradio 950 in Detroit, I’ve held such positions as WXYT program director, afternoon drive sports anchor for WWJ and WXYT and co-host of “Inside Tigertown” with Dan Dickerson. I currently work as Managing Editor, weekdays in the WWJ Newsroom.
I’ve heard people saying the Tigers are a team of destiny…as their opposition has been self destructing over the past few weeks. But I think to say that is insulting to the team.
I was watching Fox-2′s sports talk show this week end….and 97.1′s Jamie Samuelson made an interesting point. Remember the bad old days of 2003 when the Tigers had a chance to set the all time record for losses in a season? Tiger fans dreamed of the day that the team could once again be a contender and playing meaningful games in September.
It’s unclear how cuts will be made in individual departments, but Napoleon requested $105 million to run his department, including jails, and was given $85 million.
Finally, after waiting for most of the season, the bat of Delmon Young has come alive. It may be just in time to help the Tigers to a division title, or at least a spot in the playoffs.
Is it a bird??? Is it a plane? No….it’s Andy Dirks.
We’ve all experienced it at one time or the other in our lives. You get that foreboding feeling that something bad is about to happen. I’m afraid I’m getting that feeling from the Tigers.
The title is one of my weak attempts at humor….as Sigmund Freud felt that many of a person’s mental problems could find roots in early childhood. Whatever is behind the hitting struggles of Brennan Boesch..time is running out.
It’s the second biggest purchase most of us will ever make: buying a new car. But new research shows some consumers are leaving with a new set of keys — without ever taking a test drive.
The Tigers improbable victory over the Indians was fun and thrilling. Some are calling it the greatest game they’d ever seen. Once the flush of the win goes away….you shoud remember it really didn’t mean a thing on the long term.
