This evening’s activities: watching baseball and playing Tetris

So, tonight, I did exactly what I said I needed to not do in order to keep up my blogging frequency: watching baseball and playing Tetris.  I watched a ton of baseball tonight.  I watched the second half of the Tigers-A’s game and pretty much the entire Mets-Cardinals game, with a little break for Tetris in the 2nd or 3rd inning.  I was happy to see the Tigers win.  I’ve been rooting for the Tigers more or less all season.  To a large extent, I find myself rooting for Detroit because practically their entire coaching staff is ex-Pirates (from the early ’90s when the Pirates were good).  However, I also find myself rooting for Detroit because of the team’s similarity to the Pirates.  Not unlike the Pirates, the Tigers had something like 12 or 13 consecutive losing seasons before this year.  While the Pirates have yet to break out of their string of consecutive losing seasons, Detroit’s success gives me hope that turning things around is not an impossible task and that things can actually be turned around quite quickly.
