With the season firmly in the dumpster, its always a good idea to look back at happier times. It is frustrating, but I have a hard time getting too angry about a down season after 4 consecutive division championships. So I look to the future for hope, and to the past for good memories.
My personal favorite Tigers' memory was Game 2 of the 2006 World Series. Yes, the infamous "foreign substance" game by Kenny Rodgers. I was only a month into attending the University of Michigan when my Dad drove out and surprised me with tickets to the game. I still don't know how he got them, but I was out of my mind with excitement.
As an added bonus, he brought my grandmother, who might be a bigger Tigers fan than myself. Watching her take down an eight dollar beer while yelling and waving a white towel at high speeds is what baseball/America is all about.
The game was great, the atmosphere was electric, and Todd Jones made sure that the game was always in doubt. Of course the Tigers went on the lose the series, but getting to see a World Series win with my family is something that I will never forget.
