Know what I didn’t think to do yesterday? DVR the game. I wonder if I might’ve seen myself on TV. At one point, a fly ball came our way and everyone reacted to it. I couldn’t see it, so I kind of freaked out and ducked behind the guy in front of me.
This is the most beautiful place on Earth and I was thrilled to be there again. Too many years have gone by since I last set foot in this park.
I just got home from the game. The Tigers didn’t win, but it was still great to be there. I’m grateful to my friend Brooke and her husband Tony for getting us all tickets. I had been wanting to go to a game for a very long time. It was me, my sister Nicole and my brother Fred, Brooke and Tony and their kids. The group might have been bigger, but a few people were unable to go.
It rained quite a bit in the middle of the game. They stopped the game for a while and had the tarp over the infield. A few people stayed out in the rain and waited it out, my sister and I among them, but most went up to the higher seats where there is a roof. I’m a hunter, I sit out in the rain a lot, so this wasn’t a big deal for me, especially when it was a warm day.
Well, I checked, and I see the Lions won today. They ended with a tie last week, but they didn’t lose. So, we can say that, so far, the Lions have not lost a game this season.
Twelve innings and John Hicks breaks the tie with a homerun while the bases are loaded.
Tigers 8 – Orioles 4
I don’t think Michigan plays this weekend, but I just watched Eastern Michigan beat Illinois. 34-31.
They were really pissing me off in the end, but the Lions managed to not lose. But they didn’t win either.
A freaking tie?
I have not seen a tie in NFL since… I don’t know if I ever have.
Final Score: 27-27.
Two overtimes and Michigan beat the Army. 24-21.
The Detroit Lions will win the Super Bowl this season.
Because I said so.
Thursday Night Football starts at 8:30. First game of the NFL season. I’m rooting for the Packers.
Hope I don’t drink all my beer before the game starts.
Michigan kicks off their season at 7:30.
I’m a diehard Michigan fan and baseball is my religion. When Michigan’s baseball team fails to win the College World Series, I need a strong drink and a shoulder to cry on.
But it was a good game.
