Prepare Thyself: April 6- April 12

I know that the actual “holiday” this week lands on Sunday of next week, but as far as I am concerned, today should be a national holiday is well.

HAPPY OPENING DAY, EVERYONE!

Down to business.

  • Red Wings: 1-1
  • Pistons: 1-3
  • Michigan Baseball: 2-3

Grand total: 4-7

  • The Red Wings continued to struggle, with Ty Conklin giving up 4 goals to David Backes on Thursday en route to a 5-4 loss. However, a late Marian Hossa goal against Minnesota yesterday saved a split for the week.
  • The Pistons got back to their losing ways and have found their way squarely into the 8th and final playoff spot in the East.
  • Michigan baseball kept the roller coaster ride alive with another up and down week. This team officially worries me. Their pitching staff is all over the board, and each and every game appears to be a total crapshoot. One would normally assume that 17 runs would be more than enough for a win over OAKLAND, yet it was barely enough this past week,

Team of the Week = FAIL. Nobody gets it.

Actually, scratch that. I’m giving it to the Tigers. I mean, why not. The season starts anew today, all of the bad feelings from last season are gone, and they are as close as they may come all season to the top of the Central (I hope not.) Hope springs forth today, so embrace it Detroit! RESTORE THE ROAR!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!

(Let’s see how I feel in two months…)

Even now, I still think Opening Day in Detroit is one of the greatest spectacles ever. The Tigers open up COPA this year against the Rangers, and I will be watching and listening to every pitch.

The National Championship is tonight and Sparty is in it. I know there have been tons of discussions going on about whether or not it is ok to root for them tonight, but I am not getting involved. I have plenty of friends who went to State who cheer for Michigan when I am around, so I probably do owe it to them. It’s just so hard…

Anywho, should be an entertaining game.
