Go Tigers!

I'd almost forgotten there was still baseball going on. My Cubs crashed and burned before the All-Star break, so it's been off my radar. And I don't care what Tommy Lasorda says, I don't give a damn about watching Major League Baseball (tm) if my team's not involved. However, I now officially pledge my allegiance to the Detroit Tigers for the duration of the World Series. I'm a National League guy, but there's no way I'm rooting for the Cardinals or Mets.

In honor of the Tigers and their 40-something pitcher Kenny "The Gambler" Rogers, here's a video of the "other" Kenny Rogers singing "The Gambler" with some muppets. Gotta love a kids show that openly flaunts gambling, whiskey, and cigarettes. I gotta say though, the tap-dancing muppet ghost at the end may cause nightmares:

I guess for me it's like this:

Tigers > Mets > root canal > Cardinals

Tigers are a good story too. I remember being shocked that Maggs and Pudge would actually sign there given the horrid season a few years ago. Now they have a World Series appearance as a reward. Not too shabby.

I remember when they signed Kenny Rogers and Todd Jones before the season, and thinking WTF?

Tigers are bringing it all back home. Best story in baseball since the 2004 Red Sox. Jim Leyland is King Midas and he deserves a World Series win for the team he was part of for 18 years.

Let's Go Tigers!
