One of the teams I'll be mildly rooting for the rest of the way is the Detroit Tigers, due to family-from-Michigan influences. One Tigers fan, ToppsGuy of the blog Baseball Cards and Life, and I made a trade a while back. Here are some of the results on my end:
Listia win, I can now play with Wes Helms on the Baseball Advance game (GameBoy Advance, y'all). He tends to strike out more than not, however.
expressed interest in the Cubs' managerial job. Considering their last two managers are Mike Quade and Dale Sveum, I suppose they could do worse.
Back of a Brian Jordan card, on which we learn a piece of obscure sports/teevee trivia; who knew Jordan was a "Young and the Restless" fan? Well, Wikipedia, obviously.
Ahh! Original and Archived Bob Watson cards! This was not the only Archives card ToppsGuy sent my way.
Kevin Pasley anymore.
You know your facial hair is serious when cutting it off makes news. Could have also been a slow news day, though, too. I'll give you that.
Thanks to ToppsGuy for the card and the trade!
