|Uma's only saying what Tigers fans are all thinking...|
"Looked dead, didn't we?
Well, we weren't. But it wasn't from lack of trying, we can tell you that. Actually, that umpire's missed call put our team in a slump--a slump we were to lie in for four months. When we snapped out of it, we went on what the ESPN announcers refer to as 'A Roaring Rampage of Revenge.' We roared, and we rampaged, and we got bloody satisfaction.
We've beaten a hell of a lot of teams to get to this point, but we've only got one more.
The last one.
The one we're driving to right now.
The only team left.
And when we arrive at the World Series, we are gonna
BEAT THE GIANTS."
DEATH LIST FOUR
4. San Francisco Giants
If you readers don't get what was just referenced above, watch Kill Bill. You won't regret it, and maybe you'll blame us less for doing something so cheesy. But goddammit, we're excited. Our boys clawed their way out of mediocrity and disappointment and are now in the World freaking Series. Tigers vs. Giants. Verlander vs. Zito. It all starts tonight.
The Tigers have red on their ledger, and they'd like to…wait, wrong movie. Whatever. To Game 1 we go!!!
