This weekend watching the Tigers was tough, it was a big series against Baltimore that they should have won with Verlander, Fister and Porcello going against three guys I’ve never heard of.
After working on Saturday I got home, opened a beer and sat on the couch and turned on the game. All of this was just in time to watch one pitch, the one Chris Davis hit for a game-winning three run home run in the seventh. I chugged the beer, looked at the T.V. and turned the game off.
Next, on Sunday ESPN let me know that the Tigers were up 5-0 in the first inning and with Fister on the mound I figured it was a game in the bag. I turned the game on to see a victory in the second and proceeded to watch the Orioles score seven in the next three innings and again, off goes the T.V.
So I’ve made a decree, I am going to take the week off before putting another game on the big screen at home. I will watch at work and keep up on my phone but the home is banned or cursed or whatever.
But the bigger problem seems to be I am doing anything I can to make sure the Tigers win, but should I have to. This season has been a disappointment from the team standpoint as they are still two games back of the White Sox. Detroit was supposed to run away with the A.L. Central, but now they have fans doing any cheesy thing they can to keep from cursing the team (yes, I am very much apart of this crowd.)
Detroit is back in action tonight with the Blue Jays in town, who are still without their best player in Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion is injured as well. After the Jays, Mike Trout and the Angels come to town for a three-game set that could be crucial to the wildcard chase.
Anaheim is also reeling after losing 13 of the past 17 games, even losing a series against the struggling Indians. These should be series that the Tigers need to win to get back on track before nine games against the Central.
So do any other fans have an crazy habits to keep the Tigers from losing or given up on them completely? Let us know at @DSBloggers on Twitter or on Facebook or in the comments below to tell us what you, the fans, think.
