After getting swept/embarrassed by the Kansas City Royals over the weekend, the Detroit Tigers somehow managed to come from ahead to lose the AL Central to the Twins on the last day of the season, earning them a trip to NYC to play the Yankees. I'm trying not to think about the fact that this is essentially an unwinnable series for such a young team (check the experts' predictions), instead focusing on the fact that no one (not even me) expected the Tigers to get anywhere near the playoffs this year. The series starts tonight in the Bronx, so if you can pry yourself away from Dancing With the Stars or Gilmore Girls or whatever to cheer against the hated Yankees, I'd appreciate it. We need all the help we can get. And for the record, as a former resident of both cities (Detroit and San Diego), I'm pulling for the highly improbable 1984 World Series rematch. Leave your predictions/condolences in the comments.

p.s. I know some of you hate girls and sports, so I'll (loosely) tie this in to indie-rock by pointing out that Fox is using The Walkmen classic "The Rat" in their promos for the Tigers-Yankees series. So there.

Spine Magazine has a track from the Clipse's upcoming album, Hell Hath No Fury. We can't wait for this one, and after being pushed back approximately 8 times, it should finally drop in December:

I think you should replace the Paris Hilton Picture with the Detroit Tiger T-Shirt picture.
It's okay to root for the hometown team even if you are a girl. I doubt youll get many complaints.

I can't believe the twins just lost to smOakland, its a sad day in twinkie town. At least we were able to spoil Detroit's run at the series in the meantime. Boo yankees.

its easy to hate on detroit, seeing as how three of our four major league teams were the best in their respective leagues this year. of course, the fact that (probably) none of them will have won championships is reason enough for detroit fans to hate on detroit. fuck it, i'm rocking the old english D all over NYC this week and f*ck the stupid yankees in their stupid arses.

Hang in there, Chris, there's something to this weird curse of Mariano Riveria. For those who don't remember, in 2001, right after September 11th, the Yanks made an amazing run to bring the series to a 3-3 tie with the Diamondbacks. After a 1 run lead, the Yankees fabled closer, Mariano Riveria lost the series in the 9th, and the rest is history. Something tells me that NY got too greedy. Maybe not the Tigers, hell, maybe not the A's or Twins, but something tells me the Yanks aren't going to do it this year, even if they should obviously win it all. The baseball Gods are fair, and ever since the Yanks tried to buy championships, the Gods haven't let it happen. As for this year? Those gods better start showing something, because us Yankee-haters are scared to death. This team is nasty, so let's go out there and stop the boys in Pinstripes for taking home their 2,075th title. Maybe one for Moneyball? Possibly the Cardinals coming out of one of those "holy shit we almost got axed from the postseason from that piece of crap Clemens" modes to revamp and destroy the NL. Who knows? All I can say is "Tigers/Yanks"? That's an over bet I'll take every damn day of the week.

Alex Rodriguez can't ever be allowed to win a world series. It would throw off the whole balance of the universe...plus I couldn't stand the smirk on his vaselined lips.

At one time or another, I do not have the LOTRO Gold ; I did not want to buy it. At the first time, I am not willing to buy Lord Of The Rings Gold . But I do not wonder I buy the cheap Lord Of The Rings Gold , my friend thinks that I am ill. But when I have it, it carries the magic from such a group, such a link in the world; it is the key bring you to this world. But buy LOTRO Gold is the best desire that I make.
