We’ll Get Up Again.  
I meant to make this post last week, but then Sandy hit and the World Series seemed less important suddenly. And then my Halloween fic came back from beta and then the election happened. So now…let’s talk a few things.

Not only did the Tigers lose the World Series, but we got completely swept, losing the first four games right off the bat. Ugh, boo. For the record, my appreciation for the San Francisco Giants has turned bitter. No amount of adorable flirty fanfic about their pitchers and cute little talented catcher will sway me now. San Francisco, you’re officially on my list!

This is the problem with being overly invested in these things. What an anti-climatic letdown that was. Still, I am going to get myself an American League Champions shirt because the Tigers are still amazeballs and that was an awesome season! And I still hate The Yankees. This year was the 11th ALCS win for the Tigers since they were founded in 1894...112 seasons, all of them in Detroit! Just wish we hadn’t got swept so bad in The World Series.

And now baseball season is over and…/gasp/…I can go back to filling my days reading fanfic! I know, you’re all shocked.

In other news that makes me sad-face, Halloween kind of blew. The BFF was sick and didn’t come down. Half of our tombstones were ripped or destroyed. It was too cold out to do our witches theme in the front yard. And we only got, maybe, 1/3 of our usual trick-or-treaters. Both the weather and those stupid trunk-or-treat things kept them away. (Raise your hand if you know what Trunk-Or-Treat is - I am curious as to what other states have this.) We sat for an entire hour without a single trick-or-treater. Finally we got about 30 kids and my sister gave away the candy in handfuls, because it was obvious that we weren’t going to get our usual 150+ kids. Of course, after she gave away the candy, we got 20 more kids at the door and I had to send them away empty-handed. The whole thing was a bust.

Here’s to next year, I guess.

Finally, on a better note, I would like to take a minute to say ‘THANK YOU’ to lizibabes, denig37 and vikingprincess for the V-gifts of Halloween cookies. I think I am really hungry right now because suddenly I am craving cookies coated in delicious sugary frosting.

You know... I think I still have an ALCS poster from like... '88? '90? Something like that.

I remember '87 was a pretty damn good season for us. Also I know I was at least ten before I saw a bad season for the Tigers, so I looked it up. 1989 - Blue Jays took the division while the Tigers came in last place. The next year you beat us out too but we both got stomped by the...Red Soxs or the Twins, I can't remember. I was born in '78, so I got ten good seasons before I had to see a bad one. I just remember once we hit the 90s, things started to go downhill for The Tigers, but decidely uphill for the Jays.

It's got a big huge blue jay with a tiger tail coming out of his mouth. 'Cause we ate you guys for breakfast!!

Dude. That's harsh. ;) We aren't in the same division anymore, so I am happy to let the Jays take the East - as long as it's not The Yankees!
