DETROIT TIGERS !
Well, the usual embarrassing tradition of dressing the Marshall Fredericks “Spirit of Detroit” statue ensues again – because the Detroit Tigers are in the World Series – YO !
I could do without the dressing of the statue ritual though, it always reminds me of people with those cast cement gooses on their porch that come with all sorts of kitschy outfits to dress them in.
The greens guys wardrobe supplied by “Metor Photo”, one of Michigans most gawdawfully expensive photo finisher.
They took forever to get the massive security in place for the Mayor to pop out and say a few loud words – and just before he went up to the podium the sky opened up with some sleet that chased most folks away.
Sorry New York – you’ll have to do without a World Series team for this one year.
Peeps visiting from the Birthplace of the Blues – St. Louis, Missouri – WELCOME TO DETROIT !
