Happy Holidays from Roar of the Tigers! For Chanukah you got Hank Greenberg. Now you get Magglio Ordonez flying a happy team of tigers. If you really want to enjoy the image, you may click here to view it larger.
There is very little going on right now, and some might say that no news is good news. Personally I wish there WAS Tigers news right now, and if it was along the lines of “Holiday Miracle: Joel Zumaya Suddenly Sprouts New and Entirely Healthy Arm Like Some Kind of Limb-Regenerating Lizard!”, so much the better. Both Chanukah and the winter solstice have already come and gone, so Jews and pagans have already done their holiday wishing, but Christians and those who celebrate Kwanzaa still have time to wish for new and improved Tigers.
I suggest wishing first and foremost for bullpen help, and then for a hot young backup catcher. Merely suggestions, of course. If you want to wish for Magglio Ordonez to show up in your stocking wearing nothing but a Santa hat, that is up to you.
Those without winter celebrations may dispense with wishing and may choose to send letters requesting relievers to Dave Dombrowski year ’round, of course. Tigers for all!
So whether you are celebrating the holidays or just lounging around on your days off or simply feasting on candy canes when they go on sale in a few days (something people of all persuasions can come together to enjoy- I choose to interpret delicious peppermint candy as entirely secular, ’cause so far as I know, ain’t no candy canes in the Bible), have fun, Tigers fans!
And if you DO somehow or other get Magglio in your stocking, please let us know. That would definitely be worthy of a post ’round these parts.
