Springtime and the Detroit Tigers go hand-in-hand. They are both filled with hope of good things to come early in the season. Once again, hope springs eternal for the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers are 5-1 coming back to Motown to play their home opener today. The weather will be absolutely gorgeous for baseball in Detroit today.
I hope that like the first warm spring day the Tigers are not teasing us and setting us up for cold and cloudy days ahead. As a lifetime Tigers fan who hasn't had a whiff of success since the Sparky Anderson era came to an end I am hoping against all hope that this is the year the Tigers break out of the cycle of mediocrity.
I am not asking for even a post season spot this season. I just want the Tigers to at least have a winning record and be fun to watch. Go Tigers!
