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.
