Mike Lantry, 1972
I've got two finals tomorrow, so what better way to procrastinate than to watch my Lions choke away the division lead!
This one is going to be messy. Huge blizzard taking place, probably favors the team who makes fewer mistakes (ie: not the Lions).
Feel free to lock this thread (would probably be a good idea), but it will be posted ad nauseum if it's not up.
Detroit has filed for bankruptcy.
According to Freep and Detroit News sources, Illitch Holdings met with the DDA this afternoon and a tentative deal has been reached for an 18,000 seat multi-purpose event center. The arena would be located kitty corner from Comerica Park.
It's still very early in the project, so no word yet on the future of JLA. Illitch Holdings hopes to get the deal finialized by the end of the year.
Miguel Cabrera is officially in the lineup for tonight's game against KC:
Looks like the start time is 8:10:
Hopeful signs: Cabrera is at .331, Trout seven points back. Hamilton needs two homers to tie Cabrera. Both players will have wrapped up their games before the Tigers commence play, so we will know where we stand.
Do your commenting, hopefully celebrating, here. Updates, shifting percentages and tallies all appreciated, since I will be wrapped up with an eight-year-old who likes to go to bed at midnight, only looking in from time to time.
Started this thread to find a link to the game, thought I would remake it as an open thread in case anyone has observations, though the game is 2/3 over. Tied at four, middle of the seventh inning, watch here:
If anyone knows where a radio feed can be found, would love to know for future reference.
