It’s time for the Winter Caravan, that annual collection of randomly delightful Tigers appearances in the cold and the snow and the dead of Michigan winter. I, with my Massachusetts location, will not be able to attend, but maybe you will? There are many wonderful options to choose from, such as
Rajai Davis at the Frankenmuth Snowfest, doing snow things, or
Nick Castellanos serving you Buffalo Wild Wings, which I know is your true wildest dream, or
Ian Kinsler posing seductively with cars at the North American International Car Show,
or any other number of magical things that will be happening with Tigers in and around them. Hospitals! Rotary Clubs! MudHens! Hockeytown! A police crime lab (??)! The US Customs and Border Protection Agency (??????)! Something at Oakland University that will be taking place on North Squirrel Road! Just what you need to warm up your winter.
Also, we now know how the Max Scherzer situation panned out.
So I suppose that is that. So long, dear friend. We will miss your spot in the rotation and your goofy good nature and most of all your beautiful, extremely cartooning-friendly eyes.
