Commemorate The Joy Of The Tigers’ Lost Season
I don’t mind Detroit. Really, I don’t. I know they’ve been having some harsh times – what with the destruction of the American car industry and all – and they’re generally nice, enjoyable people. But got-DAMN if the city’s baseball team losing their AL Central championship crown during the last week of the year by losing a whole bunch of games in rapid succession didn’t make this Chicago White Sox fan smile a bit. (But that’s more to do with having a few friends who are, let’s say, animated Tigers fans than anything to do with my association with the White Sox.)
And now, with this great link from Deadspin, we all have a way of trash-talking our friends who are annoying Tigers fans!
Unfortunately, you can’t buy the memorabilia anymore – if you could, that would definitely be the way to go – but saving this image and either emailing it or sticking it up on their Facebook page is the way to go. Perhaps with a phrase like “So close, yet so far away” or something along those lines. The point is, now is the time to make fun of them! Have at it!
