Please hold (but also eat some nachos).

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.

  1. Prince is the man!

  2. that was the best thing i’ve seen all season.

  3. Hang in there Sam. Thanks for the cartoony treats.
    Speaking of Prince, behold the Prince Fielder t-shirt of beauty and awesomeness! I got one from a local Dick’s and they also have them online. (I have no commercial interest here, just don’t want anyone to miss out who would love it as much as I do.)

  4. Glad you’re back, hope you’ll stay (a great season hasn’t been quite the same without you), love your work here. I am in awe of anyone who can suffer through an avalanche of increasingly baroque personal issues and still come up with such a phrase to describe it.

    So what happens if the Tigers play the Red Sox in the ALCS?

  5. Having been at Fenway with the blogger when the Tigers are in Boston, I can confidently report that she will be dressed in Tiger…..

  6. Excellent!

  7. I agree with Rod: “That was beautiful… That was PER-FECT!”

  8. How could this team not be winners??
