I’m becoming a believer: The Tigers lead the ALCS 3-0


The Tigers just won their third game in a row against Oakland! They now have a commanding lead in the series of 3 games to none. One more win, and they’re in the World Series for the first time since 1984!

You know, although I expressed skepticism about the Tigers’ chances earlier in the season, I’m starting to believe. In fact, Mitch Albom’s take on the situation is sounding better and better, particularly this part:

You can say whatever you want. You can call the talk shows, fly your flag on your minivan, sing that hokey “Go Get ‘Em Tigers” song, call your friends in New York and say, “We did your Yankees, and we’ll be back to do your Mets!”


Meanwhile, The Onion, as always, expresses what baseball fans everywhere (except in the New York metro area) are thinking:
