Bless You Boys!

As I write this, it's the bottom of the 7th inning game 5 in St. Louis and the Tigers are down 4-2. It's a must win game for the Tigers. I have to say honestly that while would be great if the Tigers won the whole thing (first getting a scrappily played win in tonight's game), but I think it would be great if it also went 7 games-winner take all. And who ever wins-good for them. It is a boon for both cities who have weathered so many down times. Both are blue collar cities and scrappy teams. Both cities are part of the "rust belt" depending a lot on the automotive industry-which has been in the cellar for a while. There are many things in common between the cities, the teams and of course the friendship of the two managers. A lot of people paid god-awful amounts of money to see these games in person, so I hope they all get that opportunity. If the Tigers win tonight, the last two games are in Detroit. I don't have tickets and if I had them, would give them away to my kids and hubby (I don't like crowds). So my fingers are crossed for the chance to let everyone who has a ticket actually get to enjoy the fun of it all.

Luckily, I have been to celebrations like this in my lifetime-the NBA Finals three times and the WNBA Finals once-what a blast! So I wish the same for everyone who loves sports. Thanks to all the athletes who have given us a chance to get away from the real world for a few hours and be a part of something fun and energizing. Bless you boys!
