That is totally understandable. I am guessing you have spent at least half of your life in LA.

As for me, the only Boston team I have rooted for are the Celtics.

Yep.

I grew up in Ann Arbor, graduated from Pioneer, then graduated from Michigan, then moved to LA a few months later.

The 84 Tiger championship season was my last summer in the Detroit area.

Obviously love the Tigers first, last and always, just like you and all the other transplants on the Tiger board.

You can't trust those voting for the Hall. It still makes no sense why Tram isn't in yet Ozzie and his flip get over 90% of the vote. Tram was the better player.

I never really saw Altuve in a game before the 9th inning last night.. He is so small. It's amazing what he has done. I wonder if pitchers have a more difficult time pitching to him with the smaller strike zone.
