    Default "Call obsure Tigers from the past" game




    We're going to play a little game. You must provide an obscure, lesser known Tiger from the past for the Tigers to "call now!" Only one name per post. Once you submit a name that has already been mentioned, you are disqualified from the thread. I'll start.

    Does Matt Nokes count?
    "And that is part of the larger pattern of the appeal of a new online collectivism that is nothing less than a resurgence of the idea that the collective is all-wise, that it is desirable to have influence concentrated in a bottleneck that can channel the collective with the most verity and force."

    I don't think Matt Nokes qualifies as obscure, but that's just me...

    Every time you play a hand of you poker you wanna run through a mental check list. Head Position Hand Position Neck Position Breathing Posture. More than 25 items. It's a lot. And that why I've come up with a handy mnemonic device. Just one word: HPHPNPBPECMSPAMDCPAFTSTTL. It's easy.

    My neighbor thinks I'm following or even stalking her, she is worried that I may be obsessed with her and any time she hears a noise in her house she is...purified? Oh, wait: petrified. Sorry, it's not easy reading a diary through binoculars from a tree.

    Steve Baker.

    Of all the mediocre/bad pitchers the Tigers have had since I became a fan in '78/79, Baker is the first one I remember by name.

    Good call! I believe he was with the Tigers on 2 different occasions. I remember "recycling" his Topps card back into my Tigers set when he was reacquired.

    Pat Underwood - one of my favorite games I've listened to in my life was when he went against his brother, Tom Underwood, in his MLB starting debut. I think the Tigers won 1-0. Great pitchers' duel.

    Tom Yewcic and Tom Brady are the only Patriot Players who have punted, thrown a TD pass, caught a pass and run for a TD.
