Did you know the Tigers had players named Hooks, Moose and Wahoo? Do you know that Curt Flood was not the first free agent ever?
It would be nice if your old boss called you if you left your job.
“I think these sheets have like 1,000 threads per square inch,” Foster said, noting that, of course, he’s been the only occupant of the bedroom on this trip.
We love our professional athletes in Detroit even if they are mediocre.
I always joke about what it was like back in the day.
Justin Verlander is Hollywood now. He hangs out with a big time super model.
My first reaction was to scream bloody murder when the Tigers got rid of $5 ticket prices. Those tickets now cost between $12 to $20. It prices out poor families that could by tickets for $5 and get parking for $5. It was a great deal.
Detroit Waza Flo repeated as Eastern Division champions of the Professional Arena Soccer League but now the real work begins.
Imagine going to Lions practice just to see the seven on seven drills between wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive back Darrelle Revis. It could happen.
He’s punched a teammate. He ran the wrong route on the football field, giving his team less a chance to win.
When Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom retired this week, he called playing for the Red Wings the greatest job in the world.
Did somebody remind Titus Young that Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in the history of football?
When I was a child batting practice was part of the experience when you went to Tiger Stadium.
Waza Flo leads the Eastern Division of the Professional Arena Soccer League but its next three games could decide the team’s fate.
Calvin Johnson is still a top five player even though his production is down and he went through a horrible case of the dropsy’s.
Valenti and Foster congratulated Matt Stafford on scoring in the first quarter and fortunately he laughed.
The Lions lost 20-13 to the Vikings on Sunday, where they trailed from the opening kickoff against Minnesota.
Jim Leyland is not the problem. Dave Dombrowski is the biggest problem with the Tigers struggles this season.
Central Michigan University’s student newspaper CM Life recently ran a story quoting current students who will root for Michigan State to beat Central Michigan in Saturday’s clash at Kelly-Short Stadium.
Our world is filled with dumb rules.
Sports Illustrated is the only preseason magazine I can find that says Michigan State is a better football team than Michigan.
Running back Cedric Benson signed a free agent contract with the Green Bay Packers and took a mighty swing at the Detroit Lions as he signed on the dotted line.
Sorry gang. I can’t do it. I cannot call Michael Phelps the best athlete ever.
While Wieber cried for not making the team I cringed while seeing an out of date rule ruin her chances.
Over the years I’ve attacked brackets guy for showing me his NCAA tournament bracket when I didn’t ask for it.
I am tired of apologies. They are not sincere. They do not matter.
The coolest thing about Tigers slugger Prince Fielder is his hair. His braids look like tiger stripes, and I will admit being envious that Fielder can have such a cool ‘do.
Tiger pitcher Justin Verlander is the best pitcher in baseball; however he has not been the best pitcher for the first half of the 2012 American League season.
The knee-jerk reaction: Release Aaron Berry. It’ll send a message.
I returned from the family trip Sunday in time to see the magic of Justin Verlander who guided the hot and cold Tigers to a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh.
