  1. Bill was my 4th grade teacher and Little League coach. A true Tigers fan and baseball junkie. If he said it was good, it was good. Kind of God like up here.
  2. Keepleyland2, thank you for all the work you've done this year. Greatly appreciated.
  3. Sad to hear this news. He helped me tremendously when I made my only trip to Lakeland. Another great lost. RIP.
  4. I'm 456 miles from Detroit. I don't get it. I'd be all over it if I could watch the Tigers.
  5. Never mind. Found an area on their site after much digging where I could put my zip code in to see what teams are blacked out. The Tigers are. No games for me this year I guess.
  6. I tried searching but didn't find anything so here are my questions. If you have it, do you get it year round or is just during the regular season? If I got it now, would there be older games on or talk shows or what? I live in the UP of Michigan. Would I get the Tigers games up here? I'm not sure if we're part of the local blackout area or is it just closer to Detroit? I dumped the cable but in doing that, I lose FSN so now I'm trying to see if there are ways to still get the games. Thanks.
  7. Biff-I still keep a copy of this in my favorites to this day. Every 9/11 I read it and post it. It always interests me, in hindsight, to see what has happened since it was written. Still brings chills.
  8. Bruce Springsteen for me. I can't stand his political stance and how he chooses to support it. His music touches a nerve with me in a good way but I can't force myself to spend my money on any of his output. I guess others feel the same way about Nugent too.
  9. If the Cubs are a hard ticket to get, are there any teams in the area that will be a possibility of a walk up to get tickets? I guess I'm just interested in catching a game there. I know there are a lot of teams in the area for sure.
  10. I have the opportunity to go to Phoenix next month and am thinking about catching a game there. I'd like to see the Cubs in Mesa. Anyone been there and have any input on the area, access to the park, etc? Thanks.
  11. Is there a site where one could watch reruns of past ball games? I see some on YouTube. I'm just looking for something to run on the laptop hooked to the tv to watch while on the treadmill. I'd like to get MLB.tv to watch the Tigers if I did drop the cable but I'm not sure if I'd watch it enough to justify it. MLB is the showstopper for me right now.
  12. I try to explain to the folks at work that I don't find Will Ferrell funny and you would think I brought a porcupine in or something. Damn near blasphemy I guess. I put him in my Robin Williams category of seeming to try to hard and driving me away instead of making me watch.
  13. Where do you find the early ones? We watched the series with the Aztecs then started trying to find more but only found a gap from '64 to '67 on Netflix.
  14. Where do you get your Lions news (besides here of course). I read *************** but it's hard to keep up with the current posts.
  15. Nice find blue. I like that format still. I know where to find what I need, not buried under a lot of fluff. Too bad Yahoo didn't have an option on their sports page to either use the old format or switch to the new. Wish in one hand...
  16. I used Yahoo for years but they changed it up. What website do you use to get your scores and information from?
  17. I keep this around for times like this. Our dog isn't getting any younger and I know the time will come soon. Hang in there dadair6. A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year old). Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolf hound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what wa s going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, 'I know why.' Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, 'People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The Six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.' Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like: When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.. Take naps. Stretch before rising. Run, romp, and play daily. Thrive on attention and let people touch you. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
  18. Here's a thread I started a couple years ago. You might find some information that will help. Great people on here with great answers. You came to the right place. http://www.motownsports.com/forums/motownsports-bar-grill/74479-detroit-hotels.html
  19. Looks like it'll be in the sun for us then. Is there a better view between 200/201 and the LF side?
  20. Going to make the March 10th game if I can get tickets. It looks like Section 201 has openings and then the left field side. How bad is the sun on the LF side? Should I grab the 201s and how bad is the sun there? Thanks.
  21. I'll trade them for a nice house in the UP.
