Comments

Anna, nice posting. I only have one comment and it is a small one. The teams that play within Detroit's borders (city proper) are not just baseball and football, but also hockey. You might have included a little joke (as Detroiters often will) that while football is played within the city, it isn't played very well ... or some acknowledgement that the Lions suck and have for a long time.

Ah, of course, how did I neglect to give a nod to the Joe? Worthy catch, Brady.

I admire the subtlty of the following comment:

Too true. Too true. I personally take heart in the high-low patterns that, say, the Tigers epitomize (along with every other sports team, really). Someday, when the Lions return to competence, it'll be nice to say that rooted for them all along. The 2006 World Series appearance by the Tigers, for example, was so much sweeter to me for having been loyal to them during their in-the-toilet years.

I did rant a bit last fall about how I felt the Tigers organization pretty much OWED me free tickets to the WS, me having attended games when NO ONE was attending games, but alas.

As the moral of the story goes: Can't win 'em all.

Isak

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
