A sign of the apocalypse

They may have finished in fourth place with a record of 71-91 last year, but as of this writing, my hometown team the Detroit Tigers have the best record in baseball (27-13) after a seven game winning streak, and we’re into the second half of May.

I realize that 6/6/06 is coming up, but this is ridiculous!

I don’t know about the rest of you Tigers fans out there, but damn if I’m not starting to believe that these guys just might be for real this year. True, they could be setting me up for a June swoon and a big disappointment, as the Cubs are wont to do to their fans, but for now I might as well enjoy the ride.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
