It’s Hard Being a Tigers Fan Lately
With the line-up this year’s Detroit Tigers have, they should have easily won the division and coasted into the post-season. Instead, watching them this year was like riding a roller coaster: filled with amazing highs and unbearable lows. Through it all though, they figured out a way to win and make it to the World Series.
I’m extremely happy about this, but man is it hard to watch them right now. It almost feels like whatever momentum they had during their pennant chase and whatever run they’ve been on while they got past the A’s and swept the Yankees is completely over.
Their pitching has been absolutely amazing (save for JV’s Game 1 egg) and the hitting just isn’t there. The bats aren’t just cold, they’re frozen. Now they’re down three games and on the brink of elimination.
I’m extremely frustrated and very critical about the performance the Detroit Tigers have had this World Series…but I’m still a fan.
So, while it’s hard and frustrating to be their fan right now, it’s something I am.
Rally Caps on folks.
