2 Days to Orlando City! (Updated after the game)

Soccer's starting

Why do I jump for joy now?  Because of two things.  First, I’m on my way to Florida to catch a spring training game for my Detroit Tigers next week.  That will be a good thing, even though I have to go to the Phillies’ stadium in Clearwater to see the game, instead of Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.  C’est la guerre….  The second takes precedence this year, though, and is why I’m in my soccer kit instead of my Tigers jacket.  I’m also on my way to Orlando, where I lived for 14 years, to catch the first game for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer, against fellow expansion team New York City FC, on Sunday.

A Great Rezz-Day Present

Go Tigers

Talk about rezz-day presents!  Today is my 6th rezz day in world; and, last night in RL baseball, the Detroit Tigers advanced to the American League Championship Series for the third year in a row.  Can’t beat that!!

(No, no deep or meaningful meditations on another year of Second Life.  Come back in a month or so for the 6th anniversary of the blog, and I may have something to say then.)

Jumping for Joy

And why am I jumping for joy?  Because the Detroit Tigers are up, 2-0 in the best-of-7 American League Championship Series, the last stage before the World Series.  If we pull off the next two games (both back home in Detroit) and make it to the Big Show, it’ll be the first time since our disastrous loss in 2006 to the St. Louis Cardinals.

And the Cardinals are in the National League CS right now, and are 1-0 against the San Francisco Giants.  Revenge may yet be ours….  (Evil grin)

Go Detroit Tigers, 2011 AL Central Champs!

I wish I could really be there for a game or two — in the stands, of course — as the Detroit Tigers have won the American League Central by a very convincing 15 games over nearest rival Cleveland.  The Minnesota Twins, a team that usually has our number, fell apart this year, and occupies the last place in the division — 32 games back!!

My Boyz start up the American League Division Series tonight in New York against the Evil Empire, uh, the Yankees, while the Texas Rangers goes against Tampa Bay.  The winner of each series will play off against each other in the AL Championship Series to determine the AL Champion, who will go on to defend the Junior League’s honor against the National League in the World Series.  If you love me, or even like me, or even just want a free glass of Guinness from the keg I’ll be putting in my store, please send up all good thoughts and wishes — especially against the Empire, uh, Yankees.


Take Me Out to the Ball Game


I’m an Ole Tigers Fan from way back; I can remember the days of Al Kaline and Willie Horton, heaven help me.  To see them opening the year tied for first in the AL Central is just beautiful.
