May 2009 Desktop Wallpaper

Here's the desktop wallpaper for May. I asked the readers at who they'd like to see on upcoming wallpapers, and I was told Inge, Porcello, and Cabrera. As I have never featured Brandon, I thought I'd start with him.

Also, one reader asked that I note which games are shown in HD. So, I've added a new icon next to the game time to indicate this.

Right-click and choose Save Target As to download the wallpaper in the desired size.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming

My apologies for the lack of posting lately. I've been absorbed by two things these past couple of weeks, the NFL draft and my actual job.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I am a Detroit Lions fan. Unfortunately, I found their selections from the NFL draft this past weekend to be rather disappointing. But I digress. This is my Detroit Tigers blog, not my "The Detroit Lions will never amount to anything under the ownership of William Clay Ford!!!!!!!!!!!" blog.

On a happier note, the Tigers won the series against the Royals over the weekend by eeking out a 3-2 victory on Sunday. The boys return home to face the Yankees in a three game series. Let's keep the winning going!

Go Tigers!

Mark "The Bird" Fidrych

I'm sure you've heard by now that Mark Fidrych passed away yesterday from an accident on his farm. I can't add anything to what is being said by the papers around Michigan except for my personal memory of Mark.

I never met him in person, and I was too young to remember him on television. However, I was watching the last game at Tiger Stadium with a friend, when during the post-game ceremonies, Mark jogged out to the mound. Then, out of his back pocket, he produced a small plastic bag. He scooped up some of the dirt from the pitcher's mound and put it in the bag. I'll never forget that moment.

Your friendly and outgoing personality will be missed Mark!

Tigers sweep the Rangers

Riding the coattails of Brandon Inge's hot start, the Tigers scored six runs in the eight inning yesterday to sweep the formerly hot Rangers.

The Tigers begin a three game series at home against the White Sox today. Let's hope they keep the winning streak going.

Go Tigers!

Poll results

Earlier this year, I asked you, the blog reader, to let me know if you were going to Lakeland to watch the Tigers prepare for the 2009 season. Overwhelmingly, the majority of you would love to be in sunny Florida, but money seems to be holding you back. You can count me as one of those individuals.

Oh, and for the six of you that did attend, how large is your suitcase?

Also, check out the new slideshow up on the right side of the blog. I've got images of previous desktop wallpapers and some favorite images running. I'll add more as time permits.
