4 States Later, I’m in the ‘Hood

Put it this way: sometimes those low, low Southwest fares fall under the category of "you get what you pay for." I started my day in Phoenix, stopped in Oklahoma city, then St. Louis (when it was the third inning), and finally landing in Detroit inthe bottom of the eighth. I had hope to see the last inning of the game in the concourse but, wouldn’t you know it, our early arrival meant an aircraft was sitting at our gate.

Sigh.

So, I "watched" the ninth on my Treo as we waited for the gate to free up. I still haven’t seen highlights of the ninth but take it from me, watching Todd Jones close out a game on the cellphone is not a bad option.

Now I’m settled in at the homestead in the Shores and ready for a night of sleep before heading down to the yard for a possible clincher.

I don’t know about you, but it’s still astounding to me that the Tigers are one win away from the World Series. One win.

Tomorrow should be incredible. I can’t wait to get down there early and take it all in.

I’ll see if I can post to the blog from my phone during the game. That is if my fingers aren’t frozen.
