Detroit Sports and stuff

My ranting of sports, life, and whatever I feel like...but mostly sports. Now in the un-daily variety.

Red Card-ed

Well, the Tigers were "sent off", if you will, losing game 5 to St. Louis, 4-2, to become the runners up. And I can't say that we didn't deserve it, as we didn't hit all series, and if you can't hit, you don't deserve to win. But this team is only going to get better in the next couple of years. The young players now understand what they need to do to win. As much as I wanted them to win, I think that getting this far was just as valuable. Now comes the always turbulent off-season, and hopefully it will be productive for the Tigers, without being too disruptive (and although I like Mark Teixiera, I do NOT want to trade Jeremy Bonderman to get him, which is what some rumors have us doing).

Remember: 2006 was a celebration for the Tigers, from start to finish.

Michigan remains unbeaten in football, defeating northwestern, 17-3. Not an eye-popping score by any means, but the defense still looked liked the best in all land. Just a walk-through for the Ohio St. game Nov. 17.

The Red Wings are back on the + side of .500 with a 4-3 win over the Dallas Stars. We still didn't do very good on the power play (1-4) or the penalty kill (Dallas was 3-4), but the 'W' is the only thing that counts. Tonight, the Wings are playing the St. Louis Blues, and hopefully the Wings can extract a little revenge for the Tigers tonight. Currently, they are up 2-0 in the first inning (recap when game is over).

And finally, Arsenal were fit to be tied, drawing with Everton 1-1 at Ashburton Grove. Robin vanPersie's 71st minute strike made sure the home side got at least a point, having to cancel out an 11th minute goal from Tim Cahill.

Lions can't lose this week, and that's always a bonus.

Yeah, celebrating. I bet that's EXACTLY what you were doing last night.

I totally agree with you on the end result. Disappointing, yet at the same time, beyond our wildest expectations.
