This is coming from a die-hard Giants fan: if the Tigers beat the Giants, I will sleep fine at night. Maybe 2010 is still fresh in my mind, but I feel like winning the NL Pennant made this a successful season for SF and it'll only be icing on the cake to win it all (of course, I'll root hard for them to do it). But at the same time, from a baseball fan standpoint, I remember how good 2010 made me feel and I'd be happy to see Detroit fans (and I do have a couple Tigers fans in my classes) experience the same if the Tigers win this year.
I just hope for a good series. No sweeps! Let's go 7!
Yeah man I feel you 100%. As a Cards fan this year, my team had a whole lot to prove obviously, and everything past winning that playoff game with the Braves was icing in my book. So likewise, as disheartening as it was to watch us fall apart in y'all's hands, I'm not losing any sleep over this season. We made another great run after losing a Hall of Fame shoo-in manager and slugger, with our ace being hurt most of the season, as well as our best hitter from 2011 hurt. I'll take it.
Yeah man! But I have a feeling Detroit might make short work of you guys like the Yanks if they get rolling, sorry.
