Go Tigers!

Very proud of the Detroit Tigers this fall. I had barely noticed that the regular season was over and the Divisional Series had started when, much like the American America's Cup team, they were one game from elimination, down 2-1 in a best-of-five series with Oakland. But a funny thing happened. Detroit won, tying it up. And then Verlander happened on the A's and the Tigers won in Oakland.

Tonight was the first ALCS game, in wondrous Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox. But I wasn't watching much of the game because of the 4OT Michigan-Penn State game. When I finally tuned in, Detroit was up 1-0. I guess they got a run in the sixth. In the bottom of the ninth, after Detroit stranded two runners, it was pointed out that Boston had no hits. That there had never been a no-hitter in a League Championship Series game. And only one Divisional and one World Series no-hitter.

History in the making amidst the festive post-season burning? Naw. Boston got a hit.

But they stranded that runner and Detroit won Game 1 of the ALCS.

Whee! The local fans will go nuts.
