I’m becoming a believer: The Tigers lead the ALCS 3-0


The Tigers just won their third game in a row against Oakland! They now have a commanding lead in the series of 3 games to none. One more win, and they’re in the World Series for the first time since 1984!

You know, although I expressed skepticism about the Tigers’ chances earlier in the season, I’m starting to believe. In fact, Mitch Albom’s take on the situation is sounding better and better, particularly this part:

You can say whatever you want. You can call the talk shows, fly your flag on your minivan, sing that hokey “Go Get ‘Em Tigers” song, call your friends in New York and say, “We did your Yankees, and we’ll be back to do your Mets!”


Meanwhile, The Onion, as always, expresses what baseball fans everywhere (except in the New York metro area) are thinking:

George Steinbrenner Fires Tigers.

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.
