    4-0 tonight against the Astros. Clemens held his own until he gave up 2 walks in the 7th, and then Monroe got an RBI double off of Dan Wheeler. Tomorrow is the last home game until after the All-Star break. I'm going to be in a suite for the first time in my life at the Copa, feasting on hot dogs and free booze, watching the Tigers wrap up this series.

    I am looking forward to this series against the Pirates. They won last night so they should be ready to start another loosing streak.

    What a wild series against the Bucs! I see The Gambler and Pudge made the All Star Team. Justin Verlander is also up for final vote and can make it as well. I just voted for him 25 times. Come on Tiger fans!! Lets get him a ton of votes. Vote now at mlb.com!!

    WTF happened?

    Same thing that happens to many loyal players (like Johnny Damon and Pedro Martinez of recent history). They have a really great contract season, and they tell the media they love the city/team that they play for and they want to stay. Then, when in negotiations, the team offers less, thinking that the player will stay, and then the player leaves for more money elsewhere.

    Players should just keep their damn mouths shut. They'll get the money they want.

    Of course, I think even the 49 over 4 the Pistons offered is too much for BenWa, and the 51 over 4 they countered with is ridiculous. The Bulls make some dumb moves sometimes, and dropping 60 over 4 for one of the worst free-throw shooters and probably one of the lowest scoring starters in the NBA is almost no surprise.

    I sure hope the Tigers are back on track after winning yesterday. No matter what happens, the 2nd half of the season will be a lot of fn.

    Two great victories in a row against the Royals. We are now 32 games over 500. Take it for what it's worth. Lets go Tigers.

    In today's Detroit Free Press, there is an article about Charley Marcuse, the singing hot dog guy--and the genial, well dressed sales person at the Claymore Shop. Charley won a contest to a Tigers-Yankees game in New York. Here is the article:

    Detroit
    Singing vendor wins trip

    July 22, 2006

    The singing hot dog man still reigns at Comerica Park.

    Charley Marcuse, known for singing operatic arias as he peddles franks, won the Hebrew National hot dog Higher Authority Hawker Challenge on Friday night before the Detroit Tigers took on the Oakland A's.

    The contest is for the best hot dog vendor.

    Marcuse, 24, of Birmingham was one of four finalists. He receives a luxury trip for two to New York City to see the Tigers play the Yankees on Aug. 31.

    The other finalists were Brenda McCants, 22, of Detroit; Johnny Kelmar, 34, of Warren, and Julius King, 54, of Detroit.

    Fans have voted for about a month at Comerica Park.

    Went to the grand-slam victory over the White Sox. Saw Charley refuse to give ketchup to a ChiSox fan with her hot dog. She couldn't believe it, but he would not budge. "No ketchup at the ball park, mustard only, or plain."

    He made some kind of analogy that I forgot.

    The whole scene was awesome.

    I was at the same game with a bunch of friends. A few of my friends were slightly inebriated from some tailgating. After the grand slam, and a few more, they tried to lead our section in some chants and general cheering. This enraged a ChiSox fan two rows behind us to no end, and she started arguing with my friends. Her husband/boyfriend or whatever he was physically had to hold her back from going down the stairs to go after them. It was great. Hopefully it was the same woman that was refused ketchup.

    Their chants and cheering were nothing offensive. The worst might have been "White Sox Suck!" or something. Honestly, if you're in the opposing team's stadium, you have to expect some ragging on your team, especially after that grand slam.

    8.5 games up now with the Twins coming up next. It should be a great weekend of baseball. I say keep the team the way it is. We don't need to try to trade to get anyone. Bless you boys!! This is the year!!

    Charley NEVER gives ketchup. To anyone!

    One of the greatest wins of the season thus far. Coming from behind (when the game seemed to be lost) to beat Cleveland 7-6. What an unbelievable catch by Inge (who plunged into the stands.)
