Things for which we can be thankful:
–Despite his very best efforts, Fernando Rodney did not actually manage to kill any of us this year.
–Tiny fluffy kittens.
–Having an inconsistent, frustrating, disappointing season from the majority of the players on the team, and STILL coming thisclose to winning the division.
–Best lookin’ home unis in the league for the millionth year.
–Comerica seat prices as compared to the prices in Yankee Stadium.
–Gerald Laird’s defense.
–The fact that Gerald Laird’s defense allowed Brandon Inge to play at third base.
–Frederick Alfred Porcello the Third is NOT a figment of our collective imagination.
–Ernie Harwell is one of us.
–TWO WHOLE LIONS WINS!!
–We’re not Racist Logos fans.
–Mr. Dombrowski’s willingness to bail his players out of jail at unholy hours of the morning.
–All of you cats, readers and commenters and lurkers and fellow bloggers, makin’ the blogosphere what it is today.
Don’t forget to work on your entries for the photo contest! A few folks have gotten their images in early, and it’s gooooood stuff. You’ve got ’til December 10, get crackin’.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, kids and kittens! May it, as ever, be filled with delicious NOMs and only the most minor of familial stress. Go Lions, Go Not Trading Tigers I Love, Go Turkeycats!
