Media is shit. All I hear is drama about the Yankees. Sportscenter headlines are "ALCS: Yankees down 3-0." The Tigers are getting no press in this series. Nobody comments on how well the Tigers are playing, all I hear about is ARod and Granderson not starting games. The Tigers starting pitcher rotation has been phenomenal this post season, and I only hear about it on local radio. A combined ERA under 1 for the four pitchers. Incredible.
Anyways, loving this game right now.
Because whether you like the Yankees or not, they are a big deal and the drama is a great storyline that everyone wants to read.
In terms of popularity, the Tigers aren't even a pimple on the ass of the Yankees. It's true and you know it.
If Lebron led the Heat to the NBA finals and then missed all of his shots in a four game sweep do you honestly expect people to not notice or care?
Congratuations to the Tigers -- an excellent ballclub -- but the Yankees just had a historic collapse. You're going to hear about it for a while.
