Go Tigers

It's been a long time. Last time the Tigers made the playoffs, Reagan was president, the Red Wings had a 32 yr Cup drought, The Pistons were struggling to beat the Celtics in Boston, The Lions "only" had a 30 year championship drought, and I Latson/Grand River, the NW end of Challis/Grand River, and mand of these subdivisions that are around today all were still undeveloped.

Tigers 11, Royals 4
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Detroit Tigers had a 220-bottle champagne celebration Sunday and they hope to have even a bigger one later this week.

The Tigers fought off their late-season slump and clinched their first playoff berth since 1987, scoring nine runs in the second inning Sunday and coasting to an 11-4 win over the Kansas City Royals.

I'm very impressed with the Tigers this year. It has been so long since the Tigers broke the .500 mark that anyone under the age of 20 probably can't remember the time when the Tigers were a respectable team. After such a long draught I'd be happy if they had just managed to finish up with a positive record.

Going to the post season is a bonus. No matter what happens now, this will be a season to relish.
