A combination of work, grad school, and an avalanche of increasingly baroque personal issues have combined to slow Roar of the Tigers down to a ‘lead-footed backup catcher’ kind of crawl– as you’ve no doubt already noticed. We are working on getting these things into a steady juggling rhythm, hopefully so that I can cartoon you through the end of the season (and beyond??), but it is very much a work in progress.
In the meantime, remember that we are living in a world where Brayan Pena is an active tweeter, and is obsessed with his own nipples.
I also highly recommend taking a look at this video of Prince Fielder from today’s game. From this we may learn that Prince Fielder is always willing to run like heck after a ball; that said running, for Prince, works up a prodigious appetite; that Prince always keeps his wits about him and is thus able to react quickly to unexpected stimuli; that Prince Fielder has a magnificent sense of humor; and that nothing– neither ballpark wall nor active game status– can or should come between Prince Fielder and his true love 4ever: nachos.
